I was very happy to discover a kindred spirit through the help of Twitter. Christopher B. James is a PhD Candidate at Boston University School of Theology in Practical Theology with a dual-concentration in Church & Society and Evangelism. He blogs about it at Jesus Dust.
He does great work and I hope to meet him in person some day. It is good to know that there is an increasing interest in integrating spiritual formation with the missional imagination. It is interesting that he also went to Wheaton College, then, after attending Fuller Seminary (similar to my Bethel experience) found himself in the PCUSA (similar to my ELCA). Hmmm…the Spirit is mixing the pot, I would say.
