Secular Seminary?

The Tomb of Theology where I became a “Master of Divinity”

Click on over to State of Formation (Inter-religious Dialogue) to read this piece I wrote reflecting on what I learned. . .and didn’t learn. . .way back in seminary:

Given my seminary-plus-30-years experience I have doubts that our world needs more preachers or theologians or seminary professors. We need non-magical-thinking people who can work side by side with seculars in diverse communities often fearfully fractured and fragmented by faith. If we need any seminaries, maybe the best seminary of all will rise from the dust of the crumbling theological tombs. Could we call that a Secular Seminary?
