Welcome to the PD File

Welcome to the PD File: Notes on Practical Divinity.

In this blog, I will share insights and experiences pertaining to ministry. I will focus in particular on our Wesleyan theological tradition and offer thoughts and reflections as they relate to the mission of the church. Since this blog will be under construction, it will take a while to smooth out the rough edges. However, I hope it can still serve as a tool for helpful conversation.

Over the next few weeks I will post blogs from our mission trip to Kigoma, Tanzania. I hope it will provide helpful commentary on the trip as well as stimulate discussion on the church's mission across cultures. We live in exciting times, and the church is at the intersection of so many lives. The Holy Spirit is working in the hearts and lives of God's people.

This blog will also serve in time to communicate challenges and concerns facing the church. I enjoy expressing views about ecclesiology and missiology. The two go hand-in-hand.

Come and join this blog. And remain patient: to the technically challenged, this is one large step!
