About Providence, Divine Action and the Church


In this blog, Terry J. Wright posts thoughts and shares research on the Christian doctrine of providence. This doctrine testifies to God’s provision for all things through creation’s high priest, the man Christ Jesus. However, the precise meaning and manner of this provision is a perpetually open question, and this blog is a forum for discussion of the many issues relating to providence and the place of the Church within God’s action.

Jill Carlson Colwell on the Doctrine of Providence

The doctrine of providence is the arena wherein Christians have traditionally discussed how it is that God remains involved in the world postcreation.

Jill Carlson Colwell, ‘“One Who Trusts Will Not Panic”: Providence and the Prophet of Desecuritization’, Ex Auditu 24 (2008), pp. 101–121; quotation from p. 111 n. 35

I'm inclined to agree that the doctrine of providence is actually a framework for discussing issues relating to God's providence as God's action eschatologically conceived, rather than a dogma in its own right.
