神學教育必須推動大使命

(2015-12-28 19:20:36)
【剛剛寫了一篇短文和預備研討會期間,其中幾段也與你們分享】
神學教育必須持守真道,必須推動教會增長和宣教使命
有大使命,才有神學教育,並且,神學教育必須推動大使命。
「今日的神學院,明日的牧者。明日的牧者,將來的教會。」
我喜歡學者Mark G. Toulouse的一句話:「神學教育的使命是要服侍福音。」(The mission of theological education should serve the gospel.) 用我的表達:「神學教育與教會的大使命是血脈相連。教會有健康發展和增長,神學教育才有發展,並且神學教育應該幫助教會有健康的發展和增長。良好的神學教育的目標,就是要造就教會、栽培僕人、興旺福音、祝福社會、榮耀主名。」

Martin Kähler 名句: 宣教是神學之母!【最早的宣教成為神學之母。】
“The oldest Mission becomes the mother of theology.” 
„Die älteste Mission wurde zur Mutter der Theologie."
“Theological education is a dimension of mission and has a vital missiological content; it is an aspect of the teaching ministry of the church involving specializing testimony to the kingdom. It fulfills this educational service of the faith by (i) forming character, abilities, and thought, (ii) informing mind, praxis, and contemplation, and (iii) transforming values, people, and communities.” 131-132
Follow Jesus’s model: “Theological education has three main goals, namely, preparing lay leaders to help in the educational ministry of the church; preparing ministers of the ‘Word and sacraments’ to equip the whole people of God, develop leaders for mission, and help the church articulate its faith; and producing teachers of ministers and ‘doctors’ of the faith. Only by maintaining its close links with mission will it remain relevant to changing circumstances, and hold true to the missionary impulse that gave rise to the church and theology.” 132
Robert  Banks,  Reenvisioning Theological Education, 131-132
