Identify Your Theology: Question Number Thirteen

Identify Your Theology:
Thirteenth Question

Last week, I asked about tuning into the physical and natural world around us.

We are turning our attention to our next question, today, but before we do, head on over to your retreat room so you can relax and let go of any of the day’s stress.

Or if you'd rather listen to the brief meditation here, here it is...


Today’s Question

How did we wind up here? :)

What do you believe about how the world was created? Was there a big bang, an intelligent design, 6 days of orderly planned development or some other method? Were we sung into existence?

"Indigenous peoples & religious traditions all over the world are oriented to a primal myth of creation, an original story that provides an understanding of origins. This story often provides an experience of spiritual container, an anchoring point of identity, and an explanation for the existence of life in the beauty if mythic terms." ~Frank MacEowen, The Mist-Filled Path

"The Celts of old believed that the world was upheld & sustained by a single all-embracing melody: Oran Mor, they called it, the Great Music, & all creation was part of it. Perhaps this is why Celtic music possesses the power to move us in unexpected ways ~ it touches that place deep in our hearts where legends still live, and we hear again the strains of the Ancient Song." ~Stephen Lawhead

Journal Questions

Now that you’ve read today’s question and a quote or two to get you thinking, head on back into the mini-retreat to close it and to see the journal questions and the blessing I’ve written for you.

Have a great day!

So many of us live our lives stuck in neutral.
Do you ever feel that way?
What if you could get yourself unstuck & finally heal
whatever is blocking you from the life that's waiting for you.

  1. Thank you for this thought provoking post. I love the idea of the world being held by music. Hmmm Maybe I can align with that...

    1. Thanks, Linda! I love that idea, too, and that is the creation story I prefer.

  2. I believe the world was made by man...
    planted with love, and moved with science.


    1. That's beautiful, Khloe! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.


Thanks so much for coming to visit and sharing your thoughts! Let me know where you are and I'll come say hello at your place next.

By the way, I know that sometimes my readers disagree with what I say here and I wanted to let you know that not only is it okay with me if you happen to as well, but you also are welcome to tell me so, as long as you do so kindly.

Have a great day!
