Developing a Homegrown Theology

Homegrown theology involves the laity and clergy thoughtfully considering how to understand God in the light of everyday life. It is rooted in a particular community and arises from the lives of participants. Faithful people can know much about God and the practices of faith but they need a pastor who will encourage them to think theologically. This article, by Tim Shapiro, president of the Center for Congregations, presents steps for teaching and applying homegrown theology. The Indianapolis-based Center works to strengthen congregations by helping them find and use the best resources to address their challenges and opportunities.
