I've been thinking a lot about this lately in light of what I learned at Fuller, and I have to say this is an increasingly necessary and yet increasingly difficult transition.
I've relocated here to the US South, and it's increasingly apparent here that the church is by no means in a marginalized role here (and in much of the US, I'd argue, too). I'm thinking long and hard about how we prophetically speak to a community that is in many ways the power structure, but is so invested in seeing itself as the oppressed minority.
You of all people know how wholeheartedly I support the need for this, but I'm finding in my personal life that the "front lines" of this battle are not the places we usually think of.

Thanks for blogging, by the way!

  • Hi, welcome to my former blog! My name is Ryan Bolger, and this is where I posted my thoughts on Jesus, culture, new forms of community, among other things. Come visit me at my new blog: http://www.ryanbolger.com. I still teach at Fuller Seminary in Southern California where I'm doing some writing as well. Feel free to bounce around the new or old website -- I hope it might stir your imagination -- feel free to stir mine as well by leaving some comments, preferably at the new site... Peace...
