After a four week discussion on the name of this blog, we have finally taken the plunge and started with Outer Context. It is an oblique reference to our intention to theologise in a way that responds to issues in the contemporary context, and that does just to the context of our faith. The term ‘outer’ is not only a reference to the likelihood that we will take things out of context, but it is also a reference to the fact that we are likely to be a little “out-there”. For those interested, we tried:
– Out of Context (taken)
– Unauthorised (taken)
– Alphacrucians (dweeby)
– Scholarshite (cool – but rude)
and a thousand others. The main problem is that almost any name you can think of is taken. Since we have not yet gone too far down the track, i guess you can tell us whether you like or hate the name, and suggest any alternatives.
