Theology Teacher Problems [as Gift]

This is why designing theology curricula and syllabi is hard. 🙂

When wading around in matters liturgical, one has in fact stepped into the headwaters of a river (lex orandi) which can be followed downstream into any number of channels (lex credendi). Liturgical theology involves ecclesiology, because the Church is the people that this ritual creates; and ecclesiology involves Christology since that is whose body the Church is; and this requires triadology for an ontological Christology and soteriology for a functional Christology; and redemption outlines a doctrine of sin, which assumes knowledge of what it means to stand aright, which is a doctrine of creation. (David Fagerberg, On Liturgical Asceticism, “Century List” #27).


Happy evaluating and planning this summer and beyond!
