Paper Presenters and Titles
- Mark Labberton - “The Dangerous Act of Worship and The Dangerous Act of Loving – worship, justice, and the Church’s identity and callings”
- Scot Sherman - “Newbigin House of Studies in San Francisco: An experiment in Missional Theological Education”
Newbigin House is a missional partnership between Western Theological Seminary and City Church San Francisco (RCA). This essay will tell the story of the partnership and explore the liturgical vision at the center of its program to develop urban church planters.
- David Gambrell - “Opening the Doors of the Church: Identity and Mission at the Thresholds of Christian Worship”
- Jennifer Lord - “Preaching to Upbuild and Equip Liturgical-Missional Congregations”
- Melva Costen - “Divine Initiative, Human Response”
- Edwin Chr. van Driel - "Outside the (united) church is no salvation" (PDF)
In this paper he will do three things:
(a) Reflecting on the previous two moderator's colloquia, I argue that the "liturgical-missional" conversation embodies a wrestling with the deficit of Protestant ecclesiology, namely, the disconnect between "church" and "salvation";
(b) I propose an alternative, authentically Protestant interpretation of the "extra ecclesiam nulla salus" which preserves the essential relationship between church and salvation;
(c) I make a series of suggestions about what such essential relationship between church and salvation means for American mainline denominations, congregations, and theological education of candidates for ordination.
