From Rev. Chuck Jenner, our Theological Education Representative:

Thank you all for your active participation in God's mission to the world through the Church and the important role of theological education.

Let me share a recent experience regarding theological education or, more pointedly, the lack thereof.  As many of you know I work part-time on a golf course.  Many of the summer employees are recent high school grads or college students.  Recently I talked to one of the kids, a grad of a prominent private Christian high school.  He is very active in his congregation and wants to be a "Worship Leader-Church musician-Christian composer."  As we were discussing his sense of calling, I said, "Andrew, I would love to see you put the Apostles' Creed to contemporary music."

"What's that?" he replied.

"What?"

"What is that - unh - Apostles something."

"The Apostles Creed!  Don't you use the Apostles' Creed or the Nicene Creed in worship, at least once in a while?"

"No.  We just use the Bible.  Why should we use a - unh - creed?"

"To show that the congregation is a part of the Body of Christ world-wide."

"But we are not in a denomination.  We are independent!"
