Isn't this taking one aspect of life with God and turning it into something it isn't? Yes, celebration is part of life with Jesus. Communion is a celebration of what Jesus did for us. But the wilderness is also a part of life with god, the refining fire, the mundane, the heartaches, as well.

Something about party theology makes me uncomfortable and I think it's because it's only presenting one aspect of the picture.

Lucy, I agree entirely. It is only one part, but life lived wisely and abundently, life celebrated as gift is an important corrective when the Jesus-following life is seen as less about living and more about rule-keeping, towing the line, narrow living etc. etc. Thanks for sharing your thoughts...you make an important point :-)
