Whether it’s politics, theology, or one’s official stance on Justin Bieber, it seems the growing sentiment is that being a centrist is always the right way to go. Given that option, or the other which is being labeled a radical or extremist, it seems like a pretty obvious answer, right? Wrong!

I am currently in a World Religions course at Biblical Seminary (a great place to learn for anyone interested in studying in the Philadelphia area, especially if your interested in the urban context.)

Ran into a living legend, someone I respect very much today. The one and only John Perkins. If you don’t know who he is, i suggest you find out.
I am a theological mut. My theology, ideology, and convictions are shaped by a plethora of christian streams and traditions. This usually leaves me finding myself associating with diverse theological communities, yet hardly ever feeling at home anywhere I go. I meet monthly with some local Philly leaders, pastors, and proffessors. Many of them surprisinglyContinue reading “Theological Mut”
