Unfortunately, the upcoming issue of Didaskalia has been held up in production. However, it sounds like it will soon finally make its appearance.

Providence Theological Seminary is looking to add a new member to its faculty in the area of Old Testament. The job posting describes Providence in the following way: “For nearly a century Providence has been a Christian academic community in the historic

Providence Theological Seminary is both evangelical and interdenominational and exists to serve the Church by preparing and supporting leaders, developing resources, and facilitating theological reflection. The Seminary offers a variety of programs aimed at preparing students for Church, counselling, educational, global, and academic ministries.”
If you know anyone who might be a potential fit to serve in this context, please direct them to the job posting, found here.

Congratulations to Dion Gingerich, an MA student under my supervision, who recently completed his thesis “Plainly Becoming: An Examination of Early Anabaptist Simplicity in Light of Stanley Hauerwas’s Account of Virtue for Community Formation.” Dion will be leaving Manitoba to take up the role of Dean of Students at Rosedale Bible College in Ohio.

We are one day away from Providence Theological Seminary’s Science and Faith Symposium, “In Him All Things Hold Together”: Integrating Knowledge, Pursuing Vocation, Building up the Body. Interest has been building over the past week with articles appearing in the Winnipeg Free Press and on the website of CHVN 95.1 radio. The latter includes the video of a conversation I had with radio host Sylvia St. Cyr. I am looking forward to co-hosting tomorrow’s proceedings along with my colleague Dr. Rebecca Dielschneider and welcoming our accomplished speakers and panelists. There is still time to register for the symposium here.
