The God-Shaped Void
Got to hang out with Peter Rollins this past weekend. I thought the best summary of one of his main points was in an article in the Baylor Lariat about Pete's visit to Waco the day before he came to Austin and the new "Void Collective" that has sprung out of it.

Rollins commonly speaks on 17th century philosopher Blaise Pascal and his belief that we all have a void that is empty until God fills us...

"But what if it's the other way around, and we feel this void only when we've had some encounter with God. Maybe it's only then we realize the void."

BTW, you can also read a subsequent letter to the editor in the Lariat trashing this idea and the Void Collective.

What I love about Rollins is his ability to say what has already been said in Scripture and spin it in a way we think we haven't heard. It's his gift. What Rollins is trying to do is make people aware of our brokenness and some just don't want to do that, as the LTE revealed.
