Travel day…


Today we begin a 14-day travel schedule that will take us to the campus of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, The Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives in Nashville, the trustee meeting at Lifeway Christian Resources, to Southwest Florida for some rest and relaxation (and voting in our home precinct), and then to Wake Forest, NC for more research on our forthcoming monograph.

Tomorrow morning  we will publish the next part of our multi-part series on SWBTS reform, followed in coming days with reflections on the Fort Worth community as it enters a promising post-Patterson era.

We will be posting pictures of as many Steinway pianos, Dead Sea Fakes, and chapel windows as we see along the way.

We are hoping Southwestern’s interim president will scrap the  silly cowboy hat for convocation.

UPDATE: We have just made a quick visit to campus. As of this moment, all of the “prospective student” parking spaces are empty.


UPDATE TWO: We have been informed that SWBTS Provost Craig Blaising notified faculty last week that they were required to wear cowboy hats at convocation. More on this later . . .

  3. My graduation class was the first where the profs wore the silly cowboy hats. My pastor who is very conservative & even preached in SWBTS chapel a fee years ago thought it was a bad idea because “it took away from the students.” In my 4 years there under PP, the students were the last thought…
