    1. This was a Scotist mashup thought I had a while back. Not sure I can reconstruct the full thought anymore or why it surprised me. Probably something about an ecclesiology class for next semester.
      I think lots of mushy things go by the name “Incarnational Principle” but I use it in a Franciscan sense from my old FUS days. It’s what the Incarnation, the Church, sacraments, and the four-fold sense of Scripture all have in common: a particular mode of divine activity by which God bestows grace through “stuff.” Mix in a little Scotist absolute predestination of Christ and some Cross as Center of History and you get the idea that all God’s works are Incarnational. I must have been tracing it back to creation itself. Turtles, all the way down.
