I have just refreshed my coffee at lunch!
But this will be my last blog on a very busy 8 days.
Yesterday, due to the energy of Dr. Henry Simmons of
Union/PSCE, we have a meeting of Professors of Christian
Education in Richmond. This luncheon meeting with Christian Educators was a first for me.
The quality of the discussion was outstanding–as people shared about
their teaching and research. There were several major themes that
emerged. I was impressed with the focus on the local congregation and its
needs–and reflection on how to prepare students to serve. The approach struck
me as multidisciplinary. The colleagues are well-read across fields–in search of the best
preparation for their students and the best for the congregations they serve.
All in all a fine meeting.
It was well worth the trip in the rain.
