It is not just a generational thing (between Starbucks and McDonalds). Nor is it a coffee-snobbery thing. It is a “where they are in mission” kind of thing.
David Fitch and Geoff Holsclaw, who brought you Prodigal Christianity last year, are bantering about their coffee again, but now with the hopes of linking the coffee shop and the classroom through Northern Seminary’s new Master of Arts in Theology and Mission (and it isn’t just a new program, but a new way of doing programs).
As they say below, theological education should not “extract you from ministry, but drive you deeper into ministry,” and it shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg either.
So be sure to go “to your local computer” (yes, Fitch said that) and check it out.
(And of course, not even Holsclaw could keep Fitch focused).
Missio Alliance is dedicated to partnering and networking with those who are breaking down the barriers between pragmatically oriented pastors and scholastically oriented theologians, and working with those who are building-up the community of pastor-theologians.
