on soybean and subversion

after church last week i was talking to my colleague about my soybean bible experience. in the midst of the conversation i admitted that “15-20% of the faculty and students at soybean seemed to loathe me.” menasco quickly noted that 15-20% is a significant number, but it’s a figure that i’ve grown accustomed to and, to be honest, pretty comfortable with. i continued by affirming that i am “thankful for, and humbled by, the insightful professors and friends who revealed a subversive grid within my own tradition.”

that grid – which consists of castelein’s conception of jacob as a model for ministry, neal’s teaching on the ladder of descent, birdie’s emphasis on constant prayer & worship & lowery’s reticence in regards to inerrancy as well as many other strands – has deeply informed, if not directed, the path of the loyal radical that i am trying to walk.
