May I suggest that I might know why you are so intrigued with theology? Given your background, mingled with your experience, it isn't difficult to understand. Each church has a narrow band of theology, that belongs to them, that they don't want to challenge. You, coming from many theological backgrounds, one of which I believe is Mormon, have access to a lot of theological views. There is truth and there is almost truth, and it makes some uncomfortable.

I used to like Sunday School class for that reason too. We had a teacher who I thought was a little self righteous, and out of touch with reality, and I'd sit there waiting for the right moment to chirp in. We were in tune with each other, and more often than not what I had been studying (thinking about) the week previous, would surface in the lesson.

That's what I call in sync, and it gives me a special kind of thrill :)
