Over the next three weeks, we are sharing some articles on prayer written by the North American Baptist Conference. This week's article focuses on prayer as a spiritual discipline. It is written by Kent Carlson, Vice President of Leadership Formation. To read more articles provided by the conference, visit their website at nabconference.org.
The In Trust Center for Theological Studies recently published an article on how disruption can bring about change that leads to long-term viability. With changes in theological education today, the article hints at what might be required of schools if they want to remain sustainable today and in the future.
Former professor Rhoda Carpenter recently published, A God Who Comes Near: Reflections on the Psalms. The book "speaks to the beauty and contemporary relevance of the psalms, pointing the reader to a God who desires honest expression, comes close to listen, and reveals a deeper understanding of who he is and how he loves."
Three weeks ago we began sharing a four-part series that Dr. Philip Thompson wrote for The Christian Citizen. This week's article concludes this series. The series, "Theological Education in North America: Crises and Faithful Creativity," has explored the Kairos Project and its impact on theological education. Today, we explore the seminary's Baptist roots.
