What is the Theology of Space?

1 Comment » Written on November 18th, 2009 by

By "Theology of Space", we don't mean the "Force" of Star Wars, or the logic of the Vulcans we mean something more akin to how churches and Christian communities use their spatial resources.

Our very own Dr. Paul Louis Metzger has been busy (for proof, read this). Never one to shy away from tough questions, he attempts to tackle the "Theology of Space" in his latest article published in the November 2009 issue of Leadership magazine.

What's So Special About Space?

Maybe a couple of memorable quotes will help:

The coffee bar has replaced the Lord's Table as the place where real community happens.


I wonder—are we thinking as intentionally about the design of our ministry spaces as retailers are about the way they design their stores?

I ask my students to make observations about the use of space at clothing stores they visit. Two design elements are frequently reported: lots of mirrors and no clocks.

I don't know about you, but it's enough to make me want to check out "Walls Do Talk".

Oh yeah, Dr. Metzger teaches a full slate of classes too...

Fall 2008 Multnomah Magazine: Invisible Injuries

Comments Off on Fall 2008 Multnomah Magazine: Invisible Injuries Written on December 5th, 2008 by
Categories: Alumni, Media

The latest issue of Multnomah magazine is out. This Fall 2008 issue is the largest issue to date. The cover story is about how many students carry around "Invisible Injuries"...generally speaking, the issue deals with all kinds of brokenness. We'd love to hear you thoughts.

Here's My Editor's Letter:

Resonating With Redemption
Every so often a subject really seems to strike a chord in our hearts and resonate with those around us.

Months ago, sitting in the planning meeting of the editorial council for this magazine, looking over story ideas neatly organized in front of us, someone blurted out something about how there is “so much brokenness at this table.” Now I don’t know if this was because there was so much brokenness represented in the stories themselves, or whether we were projecting some realization of our own – nonetheless, it struck a chord with the group. A few minutes later, it was decided that this issue’s editorial focus would be on “brokenness.”

Since then, I’ve wondered many times how we came to such a consensus with so little debate, in such a short amount of time. Was it the crush of a looming economic downturn? The tension that comes with a drawn-out election cycle? The burden of stories we’ve heard from students, alumni, and donors of their complicated and difficult trials?


What we do know, however, is that we have been made keenly aware of the brokenness in our own lives, without which we might never be inclined to look to the cross.

Some brokenness is brought on by our sin nature, while some is heaped upon us by others. Some things are simply beyond our control. Whatever the case, what is within our control (perhaps the only thing, actually), is our ability to give glory to Christ, especially when confronted with brokenness. We’re thankful that He takes us in even at our most impoverished. We are broken, but we are redeemed.

I hope that the joy of this gracious redemption is what resonates with you in this issue.

The Debate at “The Shack”

It seems everywhere I turn these days I see and hear someone talking about this extremely popular book by Paul Young titled: "The Shack"

A Faculty Response
It seems to have stirred both raving fans and controversy. Recently, Seminary professor Dr. Paul Louis Metzger was interviewed by Zach Dundas of Portland Monthly magazine for what I will call his "evangelically informed theological take" on this book in the November 2008 issue.

However, As Great As That Is
Our very own President, Dr. Daniel R. Lockwood, was on the cutting edge months ago when he wrote his review of the book for the Summer 2008 issue of Multnomah Magazine - (if you're not a subscriber, then do it, because it's free and worth every penny! Drop a line at

Dr. Norm Cook: Alumnus of the Year 2008

This year, Multnomah University awarded Dr. Norm Cook as the Honored Alumnus of the year, recognizing him as an alumnus who exemplifies Christ and the mission of Multnomah as demonstrated by his life.

On September 23, a special chapel event was held in his honor, with Dr. Cook's long-time friend, Bud Schaeffer, making a surprise guest appearance.

Dr. Cook: a missionary to Taiwan for 16 years, to Multnomah Seminarian graduate, to chairman of Multnomah's Intercultural Studies department for 23 years.

In 2003, Dr. Cook retired. However, he continues counseling, teaching weekend seminars, and speaking at various churches with Mrs. Cook.

"The Alumnus of the Year award is one of the highest honors Multnomah can bestow on an alum, and Dr. Cook is certainly one worthy of such recognition," Michelle Peel, Multnomah's director of alumni relations said.

To view more pictures of the event, go to the Alumni Photo Journal.

To read more about Dr. Cook, go here or catch it in the Winter Issue of the Multnomah Magazine.
