Theologians without Borders

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

In preparing for my upcoming teaching visit to Cameroon, home to some of our alums, I discovered an organization called Theologians Without Borders. Similar in spirit to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières, Theologians Without Borders connects needs for teaching in theological schools and churches (e.g., pastors conferences) with gifted and educated volunteers (professors, pastors, etc.) elsewhere.

As a big believer in the benefits of teaching (and thus learning) in new contexts, as well as in the universality and diversity of the church, I recommend this organization and this kind of experience. (I will of course have more to say when I return).
