What Inquirers Are Asking, Part II

A few weeks ago, I wrote about WordleWordle is a free online program into which the user inputs a large amount of text (say a sermon or letter, for example); the program outputs a visual synthesis of the text, where key words appear in size and centrality in proportion to their emphasis, frequency, and centrality in the inputted text. 

I especially appreciate Wordle's ability to quickly identify key themes and a kind of bird's eye view of the simple contours of a given text.

So as I considered the questions produced by week one participants of our inquirers class (see the questions here), I grew excited at the prospect of the simple bird's eye view.  If you haven't checked out the questions, do skim them first.  Then proceed below to what is an insightful pulse of at least one group of the faithful in the Kingdom of God.

I count myself blessed and privileged to be in conversation with this group about these things.
