|Lot facing his "real life" theology|
Moon looks at how everyday theologies appear in Methodist congregations trying to talk about h@mosexuality, and she builds a case along the way for everyday theology as the theology that matters most in people's ordinary lives.
It seems to me that Moon agrees with (Protestant Anglican) theologian Jeff Astley's argument about the existence of an "ordinary theology" that motivates people on a day-to-day basis (see his book Ordinary Theology (Ashgate, 2002)). Both Moon and Astley show that in "real life," theologies come from and return to very personal experiences, and do not change by intellectual force alone, or even foremost. They have to do with the faith-sense people make of what they have endured in their lives.
