Pete Rollins was in town over the weekend and I had a chance to hang out with him at Peyton and Lauren’s house on Saturday. It probably goes without saying – I am a big fan. You just don’t meet a lot of folks who can reference Wittgenstein, Descartes, Caputo, Westphall and Rorty in response to a question about spiritual formation.Â This is a shame – I think Christianity has lost it’s intellectual base. Anyway – I find his take on God very encouraging and humble. I wish there were more philosophers/theologians like him.
The big surprise to me is that he talks very fast. I guess it is not unusual for an Irish manÂ to talk fast, but it is hard to absorb a lot of the ideas in one sitting. The good news (for me) I got to hear him twice (once at Peyton and Lauren’s and the other at Journey )
Some Advice – if you get a chance to spend some time with Pete – find out where his next stop is!
Thanks Pete for what you are doing!
