Many of the dissertations and other articles being produced by Indian evangelical scholars and researchers are worthy of publication I think the ultimate prayer in these times is “God not my will, but Yours” Thanks Pastor A…you’re right. I agree with the “nuts and bolts” aspect of some of this. Considering that the buzz word “relevant” has been around for many years now, my continuing question is why we need to spend the amount of time that we are, often, navel gazing with such deliberateness on the subject of whether we’re current enough online. Harry Emerson Fosdick, for one, at the opening of the Riverside Cathedral, said: "If we were to put an electric sign in front of this church, I know where we would get it online. Don’t worry the catholics will vote for Obama no matter what….just like the jewish people. Someone explain to me again that Obama is a Christian.

Circumstantially, this form may be the initial or transitional form, but should not become the permanent form of government Lucas Vischer, secretary for the Faith and Order Commission, and Dr. The WCC leaders are especially anxious to include the world activities of the Seventh-Day Adventists."
