Once Again. . .

Once again, I'm provoked to thought and challenged to reassess my assumptions in light of the Gospel and the Word by a lecture series from Covenant Seminary Worldwide.

This time I'm listening through the Dr. Nelson Jennings lectures on God's World Mission. (In the back of my mind, I'm trying to remember when I met Dr. Jennings and under what circumstances. I have a vague feeling it may have been during our initial MTW interview. Ack.)

This series is not just about "missions." Instead it is focused on the intersection of anthropology, missiology and theology--with a bit of history thrown in for good measure. And through it all, we are pointed back to God's mission in redeeming His people.

Perhaps I'll write more later about what I've been examining, reflecting upon, reconsidering. (Oh, the drawbacks of listening via podcast instead of being in a classroom.) Regardless, I highly recommend these lectures to all believers.

Thanks for the suggestion. I looove Covenant Worldwide. I'm currently enjoying Dr. Calhoun's lectures on Church History.

Hi Tulipgirl, I just wanted to say that I'm really happy to be able to visit your blog, and bookmark it again for the future. I work for a small non-profit ministry in the Twin Cities, and we have a young woman from Chernigov, Ukraine interning with us right now. It's been wonderful to get to know her and to learn more about the evangelical Christian church in the Ukraine.

hey, cool. Jennings is a neat guy.

I photographed his daughter's wedding. That was a GREAT service... I'm not sure how many languages were covered!

Glad to hear you enjoying the seminary's lectures.
