Class Summary for Oct. 20

In today's class we had a visitor, Doug Pagitt of Solomon's Porch in Minneapolis. He encouraged us to think outside the denominational box and invent a fresh movement. This was encouraging and interesting to hear him speak in person. His view of the mission of the church is very similar to missiology. He does not wish to take God to another person. He simply wants to tap into that part of the person seeking a god and introduce YHWH, the God of the Bible to him.
The second half of class we spent reading an upcoming chapter in a book he is editing. It was very interesting and I hope to have more to write later.
