Acton University

| 8 Comments

Last week I spoke at the Acton University conference in Grand Rapids, MI. I gave to lectures (1) "Evangelical Social Thought Grounded in Love" and (2) "The Social Gospel Movement and Protestant Liberalism."

There were 51 countries represented. I can't tell you guys how much fun it is to be in conversation with people who are trying to figure out how to get clean water to those that don't have it or those helping their countries write constitutional provisions so people can be free while doing evangelism instead of trying to figure out if N.T. Wright is a Christian or not. And 51 countries of Christians from all traditions (Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant). There is no other place I know of where serious Christians from all those traditions fellowship, pray together, and discuss the implications of Christianity worldwide. Amazing. There were several students from my school there as well so that was really cool.

I can't tell you how happy this line made me... Amen.

how does one get in that conversation without moving? By the way, this is how the CCDA conferences make one feel as well. . . .

I cannot express how disappointed I was to have to miss this.

Joel, "moving"? What do you mean? It's just a few days.

yeah. . . posted too soon. . . . will have to keep the next one in mind!

Anthony, I know you won't see this now, since it's now outdated by three new posts. But you gave one of my favorite lines so far on this blog. I agree with this statement (when it applies) 1000%:

"I can't tell you guys how much fun it is to be in conversation with people who are trying to figure out how to get clean water to those that don't have it or those helping their countries write constitutional provisions so people can be free while doing evangelism instead of trying to figure out if N.T.
