Why this blog?

I finally figured out that it was not God I could no longer believe in, my sophomore year in college, but the 6 year old or 12 year old notion of God I brought to college with me, from a particular evangelical tradition within Christianity. By the time I realized this, I had already been trying for years, beyond college, to put my world (its meaning) back together. This Blog is about how we get along after beginning the rethinking. It is above all about suspending judgment for a while and following the questions. For the questions, as questions, call for thinking. And in this they draw us along a way that leads to the Mystery.

The title, "Open Source Theology," does not come from the so-called emergent church movement -- however, actually, that is something that for me calls for thinking, about which I am suspending judgment for now. I'm going to need some help on the way with that.
