Welcome, New Subscribers
Allow me to introduce our little publication.
Whenever I see a significant uptick in subscribers, I want to make sure I welcome everyone. I’m guessing that most of our new subscribers engaged with Grimké College and Seminary at the Acts 29 Advance Conference last week. If that’s you, welcome.
We created this Substack as the modern equivalent of an editor’s column in a print periodical. Sola Ecclesia is the online theological journal of Grimké College and Seminary. This newsletter accompanies Sola Ecclesia, keeping you up to date with posts and some observations I have as the managing editor of Grimké College Seminary. Some things to note:
Frequency - I send out updates every three to eight weeks. None of us need more emails. That means that if you want to be notified about new posts when they are published, you need to utilize one of these other options:
Audience - Our primary audience is our student body and their churches. If that’s not you, we’d still love for you to listen in on our ongoing conversation. We’d also love to have you enroll as a Grimké College or Grimké Seminary student.
Reach Out - If you have any questions about what we’re up to at Sola Ecclesia, I’d love to hear from you.
What You May Have Missed
In my last post, I offered some advice to older Christians who have a hankering for becoming writers. Since then, we’ve published two more essays.
Heroes, Villains, and Conversation Partners: A Call to Rethink Church History (Ponder) – In this article, professor Ponder writes part two of a series on how to think about church history.
George Whitefield Tried to Kill Me (Holland) – In this article, I wrote about how adopting the study habits of dead theologians can make you a dead theologian faster than you think.
“The end of the sermon should always be the good of the hearers, and not to increase the fame or popularity of the preacher.” —Francis J. Grimké
