Somehow I got on the e-mail list of New York City's Union Theological Seminary. This just arrived in my queue. The lecturer is not Tim Keller's wife, although she may also be a proponent of "planetary conviviality" and there's no denying she and her husband are nuts about "thriving."

Having just reached my sixtieth birthday, I can really dig "mystical unknowing," especially when it's combined with "material indeterminacy."

And "ontological interdependence;" isn't that just another way of saying "male and female He created them?"

Union has come a long way from its Finney-revival roots. But maybe those roots are responsible for the rot, at least in part.

Ooooooooh, professor of Constructive Theology. That sounds nice. I've been wondering why that Destructive Theology class I took was so depressing. I had no idea there was another option!

Um, I can tell I've missed something, but why would Union's "Finney-revival roots" be providing at least a part-contribution to the problem?
