Wondering Wednesdays – reflecting on theological reflection

I was greatly privileged this week to be part of a symposium for the Church of England’s Common Awards on theological reflection. The picture is one of the diagrams we looked at and encapsulates some of what we talked about. We got the opportunity to do a short video at the end of the time and I overcame my reservations about seeing and hearing myself to talk about the God we bring, the God we find and the God we mediate and how important theological reflection has been in helping me understand these things. My training as an Ignatian prayer guide has also been foundational in helping me understand God’s work in me and has provided some tools to help me theologically reflect. I learnt a lot from listening to others and have much to ponder about the role of theological reflection in theological education.
