Join us on Sunday, November 13, 2016 at 6 pm at Legends Dance Hall in Tulsa for the inaugural PhillipsFest!

 

PhillipsFest is a benefit concert for the educational work of the seminary. In Tulsa, and far beyond, the seminary advocates a way of being faithful that cultivates vital communities, vital conversations, and the public good.

 

We wanted an event that would benefit the seminary and create a space where persons of multiple generations, committed to faith and social justice, could have a great time while being re-energized for this work in the world.

 

Headlining the concert are The Indigo Girls. Also on the bill are Trey Pearson from Everyday Sunday, and Eric Himan, lead singer of local band, Soundsquatch.

 

Purchase your tickets, VIP packages, and sponsorships here.

How Odd of God

by William H. Willimon

Election is a strange word when used in theology. It brings to mind old debates about what God might or might not have done before the foundation of the world. But viewed apart from that historical baggage, the word election is about a central gospel idea: that in Jesus not only does God choose to be God for us but chooses us to be for God. The calling of the disciples in the gospels is a story of election, of how God chooses to transform the world by choosing us to be messengers and agents of that transformation. So it is, says William Willimon, that election becomes not just the content of our preaching but the means as well. God chooses preachers. How unlikely—how odd—is it that God should entrust the proclamation of the gospel to, well, us? This unpredictable, electing God reaches out to save the world and then leaves it in the hands of preachers to get the word out? Through us, through our stammering tongues and faltering hearts, the preached word becomes the Word of God. If you wonder why you drag yourself into the pulpit every Sunday, if you worry that your sermons aren't reaching past the front pew, then read this book and be encouraged. God chooses; God chooses preachers; God chooses you. – From Westminster John Knox Press
