I was kind of hoping you would choose contrarian.me but perspicacious works too. ;)

Jason: I'm late to the party, except Bill keeps bringing it up. I took the bait. :) Bill: Looking forward to the discussion.

"I'd rather hear a slightly imperfect sermon from someone's heart that shows me they've been busy walking the walk as that gives me hope to do likewise than watching yet another pastor do his circus act in the hopes I'll be spiritually entertained." Becky: I hear you. The problem is I've encountered too many pastors who haven't spent enough time meditating on the text and who really should have spent more time being shaped by it - which can take place in community and outside the study, as well as in it.
Andrew, how much time would you say is fair for someone to spend in preparing to preach? I'm not sure I spend 20 hours - probably closer to 10-12 - but I think this discussion could either be seen as implying that preaching is a waste of time, or that some pastors need to get out of their studies a bit more. I agree very much with the second sentiment.
I understand someone who puts 20 hours a week into creating art, or baking organic artisan bread - so I have no problems with someone spending 20 hours a week preparing to teach/preach. The bigger problem is when we think only this is ministry. The preaching pastor can play a part - but it had better be only part of what's going on in that body of believers.
Steve: Actually, I've been behaving. Honest! I PSA view isn't sufficient, so I think it's great to explore other perspectives on the atonement. In face, we need them. But guys like Wright and McKnight help us see that penal substitution, when rightly understood, is a needed perspective on the atonement as well. I'm much more interested in getting rid of some of ways penal substitution is misunderstood than losing it altogether. Many more threads here to pick up, but I hope that clarifies where I'm coming from a bit.
P.S. McKnight's not Reformed but still sees a place for the penal substitution view, among others.
Have you read A Community Called Atonement by Scot McKnight? I believe it's one of the better books out there on this topic.
"There seems to be a resurgence amongst some in the Reformed Camp who want to make Women's Ordination a First Order issue." You're right. I get the complementarian position, but I don't get making it a first order issue.

Yesterday I just happened to listen to a series and Q&A on this issue by Tim and Kathy Keller. It's probably the best and most pastorally sensitive presentation of a complementarian position that I've heard. This statement isn't quite as easy to swallow, and I was surprised when I first read it. I think it's certainly true some of the time. Some are motivated by power and the need for control, whether male or female. We'd all agree with this. But are all who hold the egalitarian view motivated by the idol of power and control? My best guess at what he means is that he is referring to the post-Fall curse in Genesis 3:16 in which both men and women tend to sin against each other in different ways as a result of the curse. Behind all sins are idols. So males sometimes sin by domineering and withdrawing emotionally, and (under the complementarian view) women also are complicit in the gender-based battle for power and control. The relationship between men and women has been corrupted, and both genders have idols that make a mess of things. That's my best guess, and it's not as incendiary as it would first appear. It's always a good idea to grant as much charity as possible when guessing what someone may have meant, and this is my best guess. But I could be wrong.

Not a problem. I'll be back again this summer, and I'll likely be bugging you for some Starbucks again. :) P.S. Why don't you want to come to Toronto??? ;)

Love it. Excited to see how you've been working through this process. Church revitalization/transitioning takes an odd mix of skills. You have to know when to be patient and when to push ahead. It was cool to have coffee with you last year, and to get a sense of your setting, and now to see how all of this continues to unfold.
