The potential of grounded theory has not been fully realized in practical theology. While grounded theory studies have been published, the results have been largely descriptive, and theological reflection usually limited. There appears to have been no explicit goal of generating theological ideas. This paper suggests a community of practice approach to developing the potential of grounded theory to lead to what might be called grounded theology. Two published studies show something of the early potential of this approach.
