Back at the Global Faith Forum at Northwood Church, Keller, Texas. Bob Roberts has done a superb job of adding the right tone to this event. Humor goes a long way and Bob is quick to make fun of everyone and put all the speakers and guests at ease.
Some highlights today:
Ray Bakke talking on cities: "Some people have a missiology for the city but others have a theology of the city." Nice. I last heard him speak at the Emerging Urban Leaders gathering in Washington DC in 1998. Good to see him again.
Right now, Najeeba Syeed-Miller, is talking to us about the complexities of Islam hermaneutics – how the Koran and the teachings of Mohammad come together in a way that is not universal for all Muslims. Her session is called "This is Islam: What is core to our faith?"
