Doubting, Questioning, and Discomfort

At the end of April I had the opportunity to serve communion at Christ Church Edinburgh. It was the first time that I had the opportunity to administer the sacrament in Edinburgh. I always find serving at a different church a bit nerve-racking. You never quite know how the church partakes and every church does it a little differently. We have been going to Christ Church for quite some time now, but at the same time, I am never paying super close attention to the exact order of everything. In preparation I talked to David, our Pastor, a bit to work through what some of the particulars regarding Christ Church's practices.

Theology and the Church

I am auditing one class this semester called Critical Debates in Christian Mission. The subject matter has little to do with my particular area of research. To be honest, I would not have even considered the class if a friend had not told me that it was one of the best classes he has taken at New College and that every PhD in systematic theology should take it. This was high praise, and it intrigued me. So, now I am taking the course. As of right now (granted it has only been one class), the course is living up to the billing.
