Theology is the study of God, learning more about him and his wonderful works. Studying theology for many seems like a dry exercise in learning big words and abstract ideas disconnected from everyday life. Nothing could be further from the truth! Theology is practical and affects our everyday life: how we work, play, understand the world and ourselves, handle suffering, plan for the future, and relate to friends, neighbors, and enemies. Theology matters!
