Why I’m Taking a Month Off from This Blog

Why I’m Taking a Month Off from This Blog

This will be my last post at The Pietist Schoolman for about a month. It’s not that I’m too busy — at least, no more than usual — or that I need to focus my attention on the start of the academic year.

  • 6/30/14 - Having spent the weekend with hundreds of fellow members of the Evangelical Covenant Church at our annual meeting, I'm excited to take up last week's question of how I'd explain what's distinctive about our denomination to others.

(To mention just two of the eight: Lisa Sharon Harper is probably well known to many of you from her work with Sojourners, and I've recommended Michelle Clifton-Soderstrom's book on Pietist ethics several times on this blog.) They're planning to work through the Covenant's six affirmations, one per month, so that's another great way to get to know the denomination.
