Ed and I attended a seminar today on issues in contemporary hermeneutics:
A one-day conference featuring a dialogue on the redemptive movement hermeneutic between Dr. Gary Meadors, Professor of Greek and New Testament, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary; Dr. Robert Pyne, Professor of Theological Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary; Dr. Al Wolters, Professor of Religion & Theology, Redeemer University College; and Dr. Bill Webb, Professor of New Testament, Heritage Seminary.
I know, I just lost half of you. Today was a good day – a day to be stretched and to learn from different opinions. I enjoyed the banter and the thoughts. Big irony: four white guys talking about gender roles. Big surprise: that the prof from Dallas recently changed his position on the issue after teaching on the issue for twelve years. Can a leopard change his spots? Sometimes, it would seem. Big relief? That some of my thoughts are not so crazy after all. Days like today make me want to be a better pastor. Just what I needed today.
