Calling all Twitterlogians!

Last night in a shot of brilliance or in a mood of exhaustion I entertained the idea of becoming a Twitterlogian.  A Twitterlogian explores theology in bursts of 140 characters or less.  This action is inspired by the Twitter of Faith[check it out on Facebook] explosion created by Adam and Shawn.

 

Thus I created a few twitter bits as foundation of a twitterology and to introduce some of my favorite theologians to the twitterverse.

 

I have set up an account to explore the theological styling of one of my favorite ancients, Augustine of Hippo .

 

I set one up a twitter account to inspire “The Courage to Be” with my man Paul Tillich.

 

I have one for everyone favorite golden tongued preacher of yore, John Chrysostom .

 

Then there is one for my favorite of the desert fathers, Gregory of Nazianzus .

 

Then there is my homeboy and fellow resident of Kentucky and lover of the contemplative life, Thomas Merton.

 

I endeavor to update these accounts with wisdom and words from their writings and hope to enter into conversation with them regarding the way and manner to which the Spirit spoke/speaks to them and this world.  I also hope to compile a list of other Twitterlogians that may be out there or may be birthed in the days to come.  I encourage you to pick up the works of your favorite theologians and enter them into the twitterverse and welcome them to the Twitterlogian conversation.
