Old Dudes with Beards
Last August and September, St. Alban's gave me the privilege of teaching an adult Sunday school series entitled "Old Dudes with Beards." The purpose of this class was to look at our Anglican theological ancestry and apply those theological contributions to our spiritual lives.
As the case may be, the Diocese of Texas was keen on this class. They asked me to write three columns about Thomas Cranmer, Richard Hooker, and N.T. Wright. I was humbled by this invitation. This columns now appear in the new Diocesan publication, "Diolog." The link to the online version is pasted below.
I offer these writings to you, the church, in hopes that you can take something from my words that gives you courage, hope, and a radical Christian faith that is grounded in our common history.
