This episode came from a lot of emotion because I had another conversation with another young minister who is leaving a conservative denomination because of the current partisan climate. The nice part of me wants to apologize for that, but I won’t.

Dennis Edwards is a professor of New Testament studies at North Park seminary. He has pastored urban churches, including Minneapolis where we met. His forthcoming book is Might from the Margins.
