Wrath theology didn’t fare so well at tonight’s first meeting of the Adventist Forum conference on nonviolence and atonement.

I tweeted quite a lot and don’t promise to do so tomorrow since I’ll be preparing to speak. But take a look at the tag in the meantime.
The most quotable statement of the evening came for me from a related topic: how we handle battles around biblical translation and interpretation.

Tonight, questions ranged from the right relationship of love and justice to what to do with an apparent divine sadist.
As you review the hashtag, what questions do you have?
