I’ve got no idea where I first heard this, but it’s stuck with me ever since:
Theology is inherently theatrical — there’s a stage (creation), a script (Scripture), a main Actor (our Triune God), secondary actors (the Church), and a historical plot (creation, fall, redemption, and restoration). Which is to say the work of theology is more than the right formulation of orthodox principles. By following the contours of redemptive history, theology serves the Church by helping her understand her identity and role in the world, and in the cosmic drama in Christ.
Do not avoid theology, it is alive, vibrant, moving, and powerful for your life in a fallen world.
