Upcoming Reading

I’m through with the reading component of my first D.Min. course. The remaining class section will be dealing mostly with case studies. So…I’ve decided I should order some other books to give me something to read in the meantime. Here are the next books I’m looking forward to receiving from Amazon.com.

Philosophy & Theology Afraid of Postmodernism?Mission of God

Philosphy & Theology by John Caputo, Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism: Taking Derrida, Lyotard, and Foucault to Church by James K.A. Smith, and The Mission of God: Unlocking the Bible’s Grand Narrative by Christopher J.H. Wright.

Arkansas New Church Initiative

Wow – I just finished looking over the Arkansas Conference’s “New Church Initiative (pdf file),” and I am extremely impressed! After proposing a new initiative in 2003, Arkansas has adopted six “strategic initiatives” that they hope will eventually lead to 55 new faith communities by the year 2013.

Our bishop has expressed interest in starting new faith communities in our conference as well, in line with the current emphasis from the Council of Bishops, so I look forward to seeing something like this for our conference in the years ahead.
