Running with the Hounds: Conversation with Campus Ministry
by Joseph Sittler

HomeSite MapContact Us


My vocation is to teach theology, and my vocation is to try to expand and expound possible meanings of biblical images which shall be congruent with a not-earth-centered notion of the cosmos. This is not Mrs. Svensonís job. It is not my job, maybe, as pastor of Mrs. Svenson; but I am not just that. If the church sticks me with this job, then confound it, I have got to run where the hounds are. So I would defend the legitimacy of theological speculation as necessary obedience to the momentum of thought. I am not expounding this as what I say to Mrs. Svenson, but I am talking about you who are also running with the hounds. ó Joseph Sittler
