I was at a writers’ workshop for InTrust magazine over the weekend. InTrust, which goes out to presidents and trustees of evangelical, mainline Protestant, and Roman Catholic seminaries all over North America, is edited by my friend and fellow Dukie Jay Blossom. I write for it once in a while [one of my InTrust articles, on a new Wesleyan seminary, is here], and each year they hold a writers’ workshop in which we writers hear from seminary presidents and others about issues that impact the running of seminaries.
