This is what my friend CT said to me at the recent up/rootedcollect. I was piping up a little too much and a little to neo-orthodox. He laughed and suggested that I keep quiet. I had been granted evangelical standing for a day. I should try not to squander it. Ha! So true. So I stopped talking so much and tried to listen. The very strong fully-caffeinated jo made this difficult.
Go to Mike's blog if you are interested in another's perspective on the day. He actually quoted me. I am flattered to no end, but it shows jsut how much I prattled along. I have to speak a lot for something useful to come out. Heh.
Anyway, here is what I ended up thinking about during our meeting together. Ed Phillips, the presenter, is a professor I studied under at seminary. He is a bright man. He's an evangelical with a liturgical understanding of the church and its history. He teaches at Garrett.
