Had breakfast today with Dr. Darrell Guder — he’s a fantastic guy who is interested in missional ecclesiology, especially from a Barthian perspective. We try to get together once a month, and it’s always awesome for me. He’d be reason enough for anyone to come to PTS for an M.Div., and to get a Ph.D. from him would be da bomb.
Then I talked Moltmann for 90 minutes with Dr. Rick Osmer. That was spectacular — mind-bendingly delicious.
Tomorrow I leave right after class for the National Youth Workers Convention in Dallas. Friday is a late nite on postmodernism with Marko, Spencer Burke, and Mark Miller, Saturday is meetings, hanging out with friends, and reading Paul Ricoeur, and Sunday is two seminars (“Youth Ministry in the Emerging Church” and “Developing a Theology of Pop Culture”) before (finally!) heading home for four days with the family.
