Conference Blogging

The wife and are are slumming it in Canmore, listening to Paul Scott Wilson talk about preaching. Wilson, a United Church theologian, does a better job of talking about law and gospel then many Lutherans. The interesting thing here is that he's energizing both "liberals" and "conservatives."

What I think is happening is that we are talking again in a common theological language and remembering our theological roots. The proper use and distinction of law and gospel is the bedrock of the Lutheran theological method.

So far, Wilson has been a big hit. Which I'm glad for. His is a valuable contribution to homiletical enterprise. I think we'll all come away from here better preachers of the gospel.
