Like me…but not like me

Had a good day at Wabash College today (see post below).  Here are a few quick observations from my first interaction with the other “Wabash Pastoral Fellows”:

We are all pastors, so we OF COURSE have things in common, but…

We have very diverse theological backgrounds.  We have different senses of what the mission of the church is.  There are as many women as men.  We have different ethnic backgrounds.  We have different sizes of churches and different roles at our churches.  And…we have a lot to learn form each other.

The experience is going to have an academic flavor to it.  Everyone around the table has at least a Master of Divinity Degree.  Our first offical session in January will be led by the Founding director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.  In July, we have a Rhodes Scholar from Oxford University.  Still, I sense most of us are interested in the practical side of how our churches can help people find “life abundant”…so the academic discussions will need to have real-life applications.

I’m looking forward to what it will bring.
