Spent Thursday and Friday down in Wellington at the Salvation Army’s Booth College of Mission for the annual New Zealand Association of Theological Schools meeting. This year the meeting looked at where theological education is in NZ at the moment and where it might be in 15 years times. Some very interesting discussion, including some data presented by Kevin Ward about the changing shape of the New Zealand church scene. Missed the Christchurch people because of snow affecting flights.
Related to our discussion are the posts from last week by Anglican bishop Kelvin Wright on the challenges facing the Diocese of Dunedin (see below). I’ve been following his blog – Available Light – since it started. Some good things there.
