I have had some correspondence with the pastor of the church that we will be attending, Columbia Presbyterian Church, and I am totally encouraged!
- This pastor, as I have mentioned, earned an MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary. While he was attending there, Thomas Torrance was teaching classes there. Our new pastor (I don’t want to jump the gun too much here, but) actually had Thomas Torrance (and I’m assuming wife) into his house on more than one occasion where they spent time together. Anyway, Thomas Torrance was a personal mentor of the pastor of the church we will be attending.
- As I had also mentioned; this Presbyterian church we will be attending is a Presbyterian Church (USA), PCUSA, which has a spectrum of belief associated with it—most other Presbyterians would think that they are “Liberal.” But the good news is that the PCUSA is on a spectrum, and our new church is associated with the ECO (although it is still officially PCUSA), which is an Evangelical offshoot from the PCUSA. Anyway, they are conservative and Evangelical; and this really makes my day!
Anyway, I just thought I would provide an update for anyone interested. 🙂 Carry on.
