Meanwhile in the "real world"...
We had our School of Theology retreat, it's always good to rediscover that despite very different interests, church affiliations etc. we share a great deal, gives encouragement that this unwieldy animal that's been created out of the old consortium might actually work (like the camel
, also reputedly designed by committee ;).
On the AIBI
front there are now five of us, so the session is a "goer". With two women, three men, two from the USA, two from UK and me we have at least some spread, and the topics should provide both spread and some degree of focus. Wonderful how fast and late one can put something together using electronic communication!
Meanwhile the the putative Coherence of Prophetic Texts group seems also to be on, with a handful of us, and a suggestion that we broaden the focus to include coherence in other Hebrew Bible texts.
