Callid Keefe-Perry put together this video on the medium and the message for the Theology After Google class, and I am glad he did. He brings up Marshall McLuhan’s oft-quoted phrase: “the medium is the message.” Yet Keefe-Perry takes this a step further, entering the theological realm, by suggesting that “how we express ourselves can sometimes change how we experience the world.” And moreover, “how we express our experience of the divine can change our experience of the divine.” I love this thought, and I completely agree. Creative expression of our experiences of God can lead to deeper understanding of God’s creativity, God’s mystery, or God’s nearness. I wonder what would happen if we freed members of our churches to take on their own mediums of expression. How would their various expressions change their experience of the divine, and how would that changed experience alter the conversations within our churches? Would we still be so concerned with structures and dogma, or would other priorities take precedence?
