The Colossian Forum is launching a new blog that should get some more energy in the coming months thanks to their recruitment of Matt Dodrill as a Junior Fellow.
Truth in advertising: Matt is one of my former students, just graduated from Calvin College, and is now headed to Duke Divinity School. One of the rare students at Calvin from south of the Mason-Dixon line, Matt has been one of the bright lights for us over the past few years–part of a crew of bright students working at the intersection of philosophy and theology. We’ll miss him, but I’m glad to see he’ll be involved in the work of The Colossian Forum. (To learn more about Matt and other folks involved with TCF, visit Faces of the Forum.)
In fact, Matt’s first post is a nice encapsulation of the mission and vision of TCF–an invitation to a new kind of conversation. (And despite the title, you’ll quickly see that this is not a covert emergent/McLaren project: the “new” conversation is actually an invitation into a “old” conversation which is the Chalcedonian tradition.
