Covenant Theological Seminary

I have just returned from teaching part of the D.Min. City Mission and Ministry cohort at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. It was an honor to have been invited and I had HOURS of intense conversation with some ministers earnestly engaged in ministries from Southall, London; Jackson, Mississippi; and Greenwich Village, New York.
On my final day there I made a presentation to the cohort and invited area pastors. I made the case as strongly as I knew how that the Church is only the true church of Christ when it is made up of dissimilar people. That an ecclesiology of Open Friendship is not just a mission strategy for congregations ministering on the margins of a denomination; rather it needs to be an ecclesiology that transforms the other 95% of our churches.
