On Sunday, Elizabethtown Brethren in Christ Church (the local congregation of which I am member) and the Emerging Scholars Network hosted philosopher, scholar, and author Richard J. Mouw as part of a developing Christian Scholar Series.
As you may remember, ESN has previously touched on Mouw’s excellent work. In follow-up to this presentation (and post) I am going to share some material which I have particularly appreciated. So stay tuned, but in the mean time I encourage you to listen to The Lordship of Christ. To God be the glory!
Note: Our local congregation picked up Richard J. Mouw as a “day after” his Commencement presentation at Messiah College. I encourage you to “just ask” when exploring similar creative opportunities in your area with current and potential partners-in-ministry 🙂 Yes, sometimes when we’ve asked, things haven’t worked out (or they have unfolded slowly). When things haven’t worked out, we moved on and explored other opportunities. Times of slow development/unfolding have been difficult, but much appreciated (in retrospect) learning experiences.
If you have interest in possibly starting a similar series, please drop me a line to learn more.
