30 Years On, I think that “Postliberal” sums it up best
I had to look up "wyrd"...Looking forward to what you have to say about it.
The combination of ideas is challenging.It seems that some sense of belief in Fate (The Fates, wyrd, doom, etc.) is endemic to humanity. It is some external force (or demi-god) that directs certain people to do certain things. Usually things which are legendary or magnificent in scope.It can also be used by many people to excuse (or glorify) their own decisions.Providence seems, in my mind, to be more of a provision than a pre-destination or calling. It is something done to help humans (either specific people, or humanity in general), not a destiny/purpose/goal predicted and assured beforehand by God.Providence is part of a relationship, while doom/fate/wyrd is easy to view as impersonal.Is this the general thrust, or are you going in a different direction?
