I had a chance to watch a great show – a sort of docu-story – about Jewish prisoners in Aushwitz and the idea of putting ‘God on trial’. It reminded me of what we do in these blogs – all those conversations we have and all those tough places in theology we go down – and some we refuse to go down.
I recommend this show ‘God on Trial’ to everyone that frequents this blog if only as piece of theological learning – and also for some further learning on suffering in the Holocaust.
The topics are very deep and meaningful – and are thought provoking – whether Jewish, Christian, or Atheist. It’s discussing suffering, faith, election, free will, and everything that goes along with the pain of that moment in time.
It reminded me – don’t we also put God on trial – in some small way – everyday in these blogs? I am not sure that is such a bad thing – to see where faith takes us – or maybe should not take us.
***Figured I’d post this on Rememberance Day (which is like Veteran’s Day)
