Scripture and Church Seminar.
The Scripture and Church Seminar deals with practical theology in relation to Scripture. This is a very exciting new development – so many rich and important topics need addressing.
2016. The Scripture and Church Seminar had a fantastic inaugural session in San Antonio. With approximately 70 in attendance, Bill DeJong (PhDc, McMaster University) presented on “Which Way Now? Pearls and Perils Along the Uncertain Path of Practical Theology.” Ken Herfst (Redeemer University College) presented on “Broad Brushstrokes for a Potential ‘Scripture and Church’ Agenda.” and Dr. Michael Wagenman (Western University and Redeemer University College) presented on “Pondering Practical Theology: Proclamation and the Problem of Propaganda.” Our session moderator was Dr. Dru Johnson (The King’s College, New York City) and our liturgist was Dr. William Olhausen. We are grateful to IBR and our sponsors for their support and to each presenter for sparking such stimulating discussion. There was a high level of interest among the attendees for this seminar to continue meeting and exploring key areas of practical theology. Over the next few months our committee will be meeting to plan for Boston in 2017 and also to continue discussions around publishing in the Scripture and … Series (Eisenbrauns).
