Students from moderate minded divinity schools are learning from and participating in the New Baptist Covenant meeting in Atlanta. Each session features a student as the scripture reader, and others are serving as ushers (like these guys from Campbell, getting instructions from usher chair Charles Qualls.
Many of the students are participating in credit classes through their schools, including more than two-dozen students from Campbell University Divinity School. They’ve been reading for a month or more, and learning from the sessions, and will soon be writing papers to reflect on their experience.
I hope it will be a meaningful time for them, perhaps even formative. This is a historic event, and I’m glad they have the chance to be a part of it.
