Such an approach is suggested in Coakley and Wells, Praying for England: Priestly Presence in Contemporary Culture, who explore not only the complexity of liturgical leadership, but also how those who pray and preach in fact become active agents that draw forth the desires and prayers from among those they serve.
Method: The aim was to conduct an empirically descriptive study, in order to reflect theologically on ecclesiastical practice, in this case the church service.
Brooke Fraser’s song “Flags” (from the 2010 Flags) album) became a place of thoughtful healing over the weekend.
Third, that those new to a team, as they find their voice, can add important richness and perspective to a team discussion.
I am offering a reading group to engage theologically and missionally with Charles Taylor, one of the most insightful cultural thinkers of our time.
The aim will be to absorb, to reflect and to consider the implications for mission and ministry. My Semester 2, Jesus Christ topic, came to an end this week.  It ended as it began, with food. The dynamic around soup had reinforced another change in class – a change in teaching methodology.
To help us process the semester as we gathered the final time, I suggested reflection around three colours. In between has been the inevitable exposure to the deeply riven conflicts that shape this land. Oddly poignant, given my becoming aware of the Rose of Sharon a few months ago, only to see them for sale today near Jericho. In doing so, wouldn’t we hear an answer that defines us, in which Jesus finds word to describe who we are and what we might do. I remember a class, in which I was told in no uncertain terms by a minsterial candidate that they didn’t believe in sin. So interesting today to stumble across a thought piece in the Guardian by social media columnist, Paul Mason, reflecting on recent trends in social media. Evil may be a medieval theological concept, but when it invades your interface with the rest of humanity – and confronts your unwilling mind with imagery designed to provoke disgust, fear and self-loathing – it is all too modern. To the person who is inclined to dismiss it, I suggest imagining that you are delivering a lecture in a warzone. Most of this week has been a writing week, preparing to speak at a conference on Post-colonial theology and religion in Melbourne later in January. Sacred Texts in a secular world: How should we teach sacred texts in a pluralistic, multi-faith, modern university? Dr Stephen Garner from the University of Auckland (blog here) will give the 2011 Annual Theology lecture on Thursday 25 August at 8 pm, at Flinders University in North Lecture Theatre 2. With a number of years teaching Bible and Popular Culture and various courses on ethics and spirituality, with a PhD in public theology, particularly the relationship between artificial intelligence and Christian understandings of being human, and given the complex contemporary relationship between sacred texts and religious expression, this promises to be a timely and important occasion.


500 years later, we still have an elite, sustained by the academic publishing market, fused with the research academic. But when books are priced at $90, the world of biblical scholarship has priced itself as an elitist occupation, affordable to a few, inaccessible to the many.

The date is significant because on Friday, 13 November, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks occurred in Paris. I’d produced the words, the complete verse and the verse with the words missing, on a sheet of paper for folk to hold and handle. We landed at Tel Aviv on Thursday and have spent the last few days exploring Bethlehem, dipping our toes in the River Jordan, visiting Orthodox monasteries and walking Qumran. The lectionary text was Matthew 15:22-28, the story of Jesus encounter with the Syro-phonecian woman. It invites those who hear to define Jesus, to find words to describe who Christ is and what Christ might do.
Indeed, this diversity of response opens up the possibilities of a contextual response, because who I am as Cephas is named uniquely and differently from who Nathanael is, which is named uniquely for any who dare to flip the question. Or a class project, as we consider what Jesus might say to the diversity of cultures that make up the contemporary Australian mission context.
Among your listeners are people whose cities and villages have been first plundered, then burned and leveled to the ground, whose daughters have been raped, whose fathers and brothers have had their throats slit.
So often spirituality is removed from the ordinary, and yet here is God inviting our hobbies and vocations, our passions and interests into a pursuit of divine. Three years old, pretty in pink, shoes not yet touching the floor, her mother gently sushed her.  This, after all, was church.
Remember the people who died for the belief that the Bible belonged not to an exclusive elite, but to the whole people of God, who insisted that translation be in the vernacular, who fought for lay interpretation. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. At the same time, a number of other tragedies occurred, including bombings in Beirut and Baghdad.


So, if we as a College had no Christ, would it make any tangible difference to life, to our teaching and the way we treat each other?
In pairs I invited them to reflect on what happened if those words went missing and on whether faith would be different.
For two of the classes, the entire lesson was done around food.  One week, as we talked about the open table of Jesus and the final week, as we reflected on our experiences together. Class readings and lecture notes were placed online and students were invited (expected) to come to class prepared to engage in activities together.
It is a radical approach to conflict, a refusal to let the victor-victim narratives define those who participate.
The reading helped me explore a set of circumstances a few weeks ago, in which I found myself bowing to a Buddhist monk. In a strength based paradigm, we like to focus on the positives of appreciative inquiry, as in this wonderful video.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Instead, the inversion of power, the gift given to all participants, to chose how they respond, not in the best of times, but in the worst of times. What type of life might be lived, if there really was no “that he gave his one and only Son”? And then together as a whole group, I asked if the presence of Jesus does in any way affect our workplace. Soon you will discover that it takes the quiet of a suburban home for the birth of the thesis that human nonviolence corresponds to God’s refusal to judge.
I offered Bloom’s taxonomy and suggested that the traditional lecture tended to keep class time focused on knowledge and comprehension (bottom half of the circle). However if reading was done prior, this would mean our class time together could be used to focus on analysis, synthesis and evaluation (top half of the circle). And as one watches it die, one will do well to reflect about many other pleasant captivities of the liberal mind.
Others noted they had no interest in teaching leadership without Christ and that without Jesus, homiletics was simply motivational speaking.
