A recent gathering of Christian educators celebrated the 25-year partnership of Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary and the South Central Region of the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators (SCRAPCE) by looking toward the future and a holistic understanding of the tasks and challenges of Christian formation in the 21st century. The structure of the event was elegantly simple: five professors, plus APTS Ted Wardlaw, would reflect on the task of Christian formation as they understand it growing out their unique disciplines.
Educators, elders, pastors, and seminarians met at the seminary, a gathering they have enjoyed each April and October for 25 years.
