Theological Graffiti with T.C. Moore

Graffiti is a term that dates back to Roman times and refers to etchings found in places like the Catacombs. It originates from the Greek word meaning simply “to write.” But modern graffiti is the visual art form of the global hip hop culture. With such affiliation, it connotes participation in a counter-cultural movement. Graffiti is the “voice of the streets”; it’s both a cry and a shout.Theology is simply “God-talk” (from the Greek words theos for God and logos for logic or word). But theology is sometimes thought of as little more than philosophical syllogisms about God. However, theology is much more than that. Theology is also the sum total of one’s thoughts about God, the world, humanity, the Church, and the future. Every person brings their whole self to theology.T.C. and I have a delightful conversation about our faith and tackle the popular subject of faith deconstruction. https://tcmoore.net/ https://rootscov.org/Help me edit the audio of this show here https://auphonic.com/donate_credits?user=joshuatruThrough the wire beat by Lil Soy--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/stillsearching/support
