The Long Game of Faithfulness
Fellowship Community members want to live out a biblical, orthodox, evangelical Faith, and we want to do that in a denomination with which we sometimes disagree. And so, the questions for us are: What are we to do now? What are we to believe? How are we to obey? Dr. John H. Leith (1919–2002), professor of historical theology at Union Theological Seminary in Virginia, analyzed the situation well in Crisis in the Church: The Plight of Theological Education. Perhaps he, along with Saint Benedict, Martin Luther, Alastair McIntyre, and Rod Dreher can help point us toward the shape and content of the long service ahead of us.
We are pleased to welcome Rev. Dr. James Goodloe to explore these questions during a 2019 National Gathering Workshop entitled Beyond the Crisis to the Long Game.
The Rev. Dr. James C. Goodloe IV, is the Executive Director of The Foundation for Reformed Theology, based in Richmond, Virginia. The Foundation was started by The Rev. Dr. John Leith – a mentor, pastor, and friend to many pastors in the PCUSA. Dr. Goodloe is a graduate of Davidson College, Union Theological Seminary in Virginia (DMin), and the University of Chicago (PhD). He also pastored three churches, for twenty-three years, before taking up the Executive Directorship of the Foundation for Reformed Theology.
