I’m gearing up for my presentation on the theology of presence for the twenty-first century for the upcoming Christian Web Conference out at Biola. The conference is always one of my favorite times, as it draws a more thoughtful and dedicated crowd than your average conference.
Here’s what I’m wondering: what does it mean that God is present with us? Is that presence mediated or unmediated, and if the former, mediated by what? And what implications, if any, might that have for our theological anthropology and the nature of human presence?
I’d love to hear any thoughts, insights, resources, etc. you might have on the issue.
And if you’re planning on coming to the conference–and you should–let me know. If there are enough of you, we’ll plan a Mere-O readers meet-up at some point during the weekend. And if not, I’d love to say “hi” anyways.
