January

The Manifestation of God – 1/12/2011 (second Wednesday)

 

January’s synchroblog’s theme is inspired by the season of Epiphany which begins on January 6 and ends the day before Ash Wednesday.  The word “epiphany” is rich in meaning.  Epiphany is derived from the Greek epiphaneia and means manifestation, shining forth, revelation or appearance. In a religious context, the term describes the appearance of an invisible divine being in a visible form. It can also indicate a sudden realization or comprehension of the (larger) essence or meaning of something.  An “epiphany” might refer to those times in life when something becomes manifest, a deep realization, a sudden recognition that changes one’s view of themselves or their social condition and often sparks a reversal or change of heart.  In the spirit of Epiphany we invite you to share stories, experiences and/or thoughts about “The Manifestation of God”

 

Please plan to submit your name, name of blog, title of post and link in the comment section of the January announcement at the Synchroblog website https://synchroblog.wordpress.com/ on 1/11/2011 if you would like to be included in this synchroblog.  The list of participants will be compiled and posted on 1/12/2011.

 

 

February

Creativity and Christianity – 2/9/2011 (second Wednesday)

 

The February synchroblog theme is “Creativity and Christianity”.  It’s wide open but here are some questions to get the creative juices flowing:  Is there a connection between art/creativity and Christianity? Is creativity spiritual in nature?  Is there such a thing as “Christian Art”?  Does creativity have anything to do with spiritual formation?  What is needed for art to qualify as Christian?  Is our theology shaped or influenced by creativity/art?  Is creativity/art vital to our faith?  How does creativity/art impact Christian thought and/or Christian praxis?  Is there a particular form of art that has impacted your spiritual journey?  Should there be a distinction between sacred and secular art?  Is Christianity experiencing a “creative crisis”?  Is creativity and our knowledge of God connected?

 

Please plan to submit your name, name of blog, title of post and link in the comment section of the February announcement at the Synchroblog website https://synchroblog.wordpress.com/ on 2/8/2011 if you would like to be included in this synchroblog.  The list of participants will be compiled and posted on 2/9/2011.

 

March

Experiences In The Wilderness – 3/9/2011 (second Wednesday)

 

During the season of Lent we are reminded that all of us experience wilderness times in our lives – times of searching, of mourning, of anticipating, of waiting, of watching, of unknowing, of struggling, of preparation.  Join us during the season of Lent for this month’s synchroblog as we reflect and share insights and thoughts about “Experiences In The Wilderness”.

 

Please plan to submit your name, name of blog, title of post and link in the comment section of the March announcement at the Synchroblog website https://synchroblog.wordpress.com/ on 3/8/2011 if you would like to be included in this synchroblog.  The list of participants will be compiled and posted on 3/9/2011.
