I appreciate this piece! I do agree with Colton that the category of the theologian ought to be democratized. I’m constantly wondering if I can compare my grandmother (a key theological role

model for me, even w/o an institutional degree) with “giants” like Bruce McCormack, James Cone, or even John Calvin. I often wonder if her theologizing as a gardener and a Filipina matriarch is as powerful and significant as Calvin’s theologizing. I’m inclined to say... yes. But that also makes me ask more questions.
