““The world for which we were trained no longer exists.”
Aint that the truth. The theological training I recieved had some merit. There were things there that I really appreciated. It gave me sound good theological basis for ministry.
But to say to prepared me for ministry would be grossly overstating it.
Conflict resolution, leadership, missional development of leaders, organisation skills, leading a board, leading a meeting, inspiring, vision casting….
Those were things I desperatly sought once I was in the ministry, and quickly realised how inadequetly prepared I was.
