Embodied Faith is a Faith I Can Live With

Today, I’m guest posting at Suzannah Paul’s blog on the topic of Embodied Faith. This is a really important topic to me–the idea that my faith matters to my body and to the experiences I have in my body has been so healing and freeing for me. So, I hope you’ll check out my post and the other posts in Suzannah’s series on Embodied Faith!

Here’s a quick preview:

What theological insight can I gain from my body and from my bodily experiences?

In my depression, I can meet with the suffering God who weeps and mourns and will not be comforted.

In touching my own self-injury scars, I can touch Jesus’ side. I can stop doubting and believe.

In my pain and anger at the injustice that’s happened to me and others, I can wrestle with God and demand something better.

In surviving and healing and beating death, I can find solidarity with the risen Christ, the surviving God.
