ABIDE NEW TESTAMENT COHORT 1 STUDY
We’re all here for different reasons, and we’re all coming from different places, literally and figuratively. Here’s what I hope happens during these coming weeks of cohort-style study: First, you’ll find a new way of “doing” theological study. One that involves respectfully entertaining and seeking to understand diverse opinions and positions while honestly examining your own. One that properly balances orthopraxis (right acting), orthopathos (right affections) and orthodoxy (right thinking). Next, you’ll develop confidence in asking questions as a way of learning to love and follow Jesus more faithfully. Finally, you’ll find deep connections with God and with others. In many ways, it was my seminary cohort members who helped save not only my faith, but my life. I hope you also find life through the interactions with the people in this cohort.
