"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

St. Laurence Christology Class Continues

I have been enjoying teaching my class on early Christology at St. Laurence Church (Southlake, Texas). Attendance continues to be strong and the questions asked well-informed and interesting. Today we discussed Arianism and the Council of Nicaea. Next week we will read selections from Athanasius' "On the Incarnation of the Word", then move into the Christological controversy of the fifth century. I hope to conclude our discussion of the third ecumenical Council at Ephesus before next week's class ends, but that would probably take more self-discipline than I possess. (I do tend to digress.)

How I wish every church in America had a class that included that content!

Bless you, Randall. May God give you the increase!

Would love to grab a beer (or a taco, or a salad, or whatsyourpleasure) some time soon. I've neglected my social obligations since arriving in the American Thebaid. But I'm trying to change that.

Send me an email, would you? The address is in the sidebar at Whitehall.
