Abington Templeton Foundation Committee

I have been asked to join the Abington Templeton Foundation Committee.  Evidently a couple of local clergy put my name into the mix and the person heading the Committee selected me to join.  I am very honored and humbled by their selection of me.  The Templeton Foundation Committee is tasked with creating a manual for use in orthodox Christian evangelism, teaching, and apologetics.  The Committee consists of a handful of local clergy and other Christians who are hopefully equipped to accomplish the Committee’s goals.  We are using 1 Peter 3:15 as our inspiration: “Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence.

Our goal is to address the reasons for lack of faith in our culture by tackling head on religion’s interaction with science, faith, and politics.  We hope to clarify just what the word “God” means and why God, faith, religion, and Christianity is important in someone’s life.  Perhaps most importantly, the manual will – God willing – help people interact with non-believers in a more loving way to communicate the faith in a loving and gentle way.

As you can see, our goals are ambitious and will entail a lot of work and dedication from all involved in the committee.  We need prayer.  Please pray that our efforts will be fruitful and will have a positive impact on those involved in the creation of the manual and those who receive it in some way.  Please pray the Holy Spirit works through the Committee so that we can produce a manual, and present it in a way, that advances the Gospel.

I will post updates periodically as the Committee works through its tasks.
