Over the summer, I will be leading two courses on Christian wisdom run by the Davenant Trust.
The Davenant House Protestant Wisdom Summer Programs are designed to help train Christian undergraduates, grad students, and seminarians in Christian wisdom so that they can be equipped to live as servant leaders within the church and their local communities. Students come to live together, work together, eat, pray, and read together, and above all converse together. Each day consists of morning and evening prayer, time allocated for gardening, cooking, or manual labor on the property, communal meals, designated times for quiet reading and study, and seminars for Socratic discussion of key texts. The programs are held at Davenant House, a property located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in upstate South Carolina.

Looks very interesting. If I didn’t have a family, I’d be applying.
Reblogged this on Talmidimblogging.
When are we going to get you to visit Australia? Need some Christian wisdom here!
If some offered to fund such a trip, I would certainly consider it! 🙂
This looks great. Ever doing this in the UK?
No plans to at the moment, although I do lecture here occasionally. I’m currently teaching a course on Christian ethics in London Seminary, for instance.
