Being that it is Advent according to the Christian calendar, believers receive an opportunity to ponder anew the meaning of the Incarnation of God’s Word. What does it mean for an Almighty, All-Wise God to choose the body of an infant to reveal God-self? What are the implications of the Incarnation for Christians engaging culture? We (Tyler and Rod) offer that there may even be problems with the way our views of the Incarnation are presented. Our theologies of Incarnation are interconnected to our theologies of cultures. As such, The Jesus Event and Political Jesus blogs are co-hosting the #fleshYGod Synchroblog from now until Epiphany, on Monday, January 6th, 2014.
1. You can write your own blog post, telling us your own views on the Incarnation and what it means for engaging culture/s. The post can be written, it can be an assortment of GIF’s, pictures, a video, a video blog (vlog), a short quote. Don’t be afraid. Take a side, Pick a side, any side.*
2. Please link back to this original post so your readers and other readers can find your post to be collected in two weeks. Synchroblog collection ends January 6, 2014 at 11:59PM Central Standard Time, USA.
3. Share your views on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag: #fleshYGod. I will try to collect as many facebook statuses and tweets using the #fleshYGod. hashtag and Storify it in the final #fleshYGod.Synchroblog post.
4. Interact, engage people who you agree and disagree with. Show love and encourage one another peaceably, and above all, don’t be a troll!
