A “seeker” is the general term commonly used to describe someone for whom the traditional answers to the big questions within the Christian faith context no longer work. A seeker tends to be someone who has been reading and reflecting and sifting through traditional beliefs to determine what makes and what no longer makes sense. Typically, seekers have somewhat more intentional spiritual lives than those who take church-going for granted. They have experienced – or at least know they have a yearning for – the “More,” the “Beyond,” the Mystery. They have read enough to try to make sense of their experience, and they have begun a process of “deconstruction” – disassembling the matrix of faith statements they incorporated as children, subjecting them to personal scrutiny, and trying, as best they can, to develop a “theology from experience” that is faithful to their experience.
