CLH small group performs Casting Call

Monday, December 04, 2017

What would it look like to see people audition for a living nativity? That is the question students answered this past Wednesday as a CLH small group performed Casting Call, written by Eddie James. The play included seven vignettes: a method actress over auditioning for a part as an angel; a man wanting to add the villain Herod to the nativity; a teen missing who we worship; a husband stepping outside his comfort zone; a nerd learning the difference between smart and wise; and a busy mom who learns how loved she is by God. The students: Claricesa Brink, Ben Folen, Billy Freyholtz, Phillip Harris, Whitney Jones, Jasmine Kelley, Zach Pratt, and Brandon Reller played their roles with great wit and wisdom.

Dr. Wisdom Attends the Society for Biblical Literature Conference

Thursday, November 30, 2017

The weekend before Thanksgiving I attended the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature. The conference this year was in Boston. This is an annual meeting that has been happening since the 1880, and it is held jointly with the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion. While we were there I attended a number of sessions devoted to various topics in biblical and theological studies, we (my wife traveled with me) attended worship at the first church I served after seminary, and we had the chance to have coffee and chat with my doctoral supervisor and his wife. An added bonus – we stayed in Boston through Thanksgiving to share the holiday with our son, who is studying in a master’s program at the Boston Conservatory.
