April Synchroblog Link List – What If … ?

17 Apr

ImageWhat If … ?

When I was young, I loved to play the ‘what if’ game. It went like this: I would imagine an unlikely scenario and present it to my mother to find out what she thought. Since I had an active imagination, I engaged in this til I drove her to distraction and she would declare, “No more ‘what ifs’!!” Now that I’m older, I’ve discovered there is a whole group of people who play the ‘what if’ game. They’re called philosophers!

This month we invite you to play the ‘what if’ game with us. Try to imagine that some or all of the Bible narrative is not necessarily true history, but is myth of one sort or another. What sort of effect would that knowledge have on your faith? What effect might it have on the larger church? How would it change you? Would it change you and how you view the world?

We recognize that this might make some or all of you uncomfortable and while we recognize the struggle involved with that sort of discomfort, please feel free to blog about that fact as well. The ‘what if’ game can involve some prickly feelings and we welcome that as well.

Here are the links for for those participating this month:

    Sonja – I added my link and made the change Doreen requested. Oh and I also corrected Bud Brown’s link as it wasn’t working.

    I seem to be having trouble posting here, since I thought my link was posted Tuesday. Anyway, here it is again.
