Running with the Hounds:
Conversation with Campus Ministry

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 SittlerRunning with the Hounds (PDF, 721KB)
