Count Me in Says Retired Professor

The increasing number of retired seminary teachers and pastors may well prove to be our greatest resource as theologians without borders.

Not only do such people often have the flexibility of time to travel but they invariably have great wisdom and a wealth of insight to share.

A retired seminary teacher in Western Europe has contacted me to express an interest in serving around and beyond his region.

He has had a lifetime of teaching, scholarship and writing.

He continues to be in demand as a conference speaker.

His training has fitted him to cover a number of theological disciplines such as church history (including Baptist history) and ecclesiology.

He has written on a wide variety of issues including inter-church and inter-faith dialogue, war and peace, freedom and justice and the intersection of faith, sport and culture.

This teacher is looking to undertake short assignments of up to one month at a time.

These assignments might include a mix of duties—teaching an intensive, conference speaker, ongoing education seminars for church leaders etc.

For more information and/or to be linked in conversation with this teacher, please write to me (geoffpound[@]gmail.com).
