2010 Constitution Day At Multnomah

Here's a post from 2008 about Consitution Day at Multnomah.

Church and State

Making Sense of the Establishment and Freedom Clauses

Every year we are required by law to do an activity in honor of Constitution Day. In the past, we have held “Prayer at the Flagpole” and have prayed for our nation, but this year we are doing something different. Instead, on September 17 (today for most of you), Multnomah will be hosting a panel discussion on two of the most important and yet, most debated portions of the U.S. Constitution: the Establishment Clause and the Freedom of Religion Clause.

Recently, we posted about some good press that Exploring Ecclesiology has gotten.

Christianity Today site

Since then, some new write-ups and engagements with the book by Dr. Paul Louis Metzger and Dr. Brad Harper have come to our attention.

On The Blogosphere

(Not to be confused with the MU Blogosphere)

If you do a web search for this book, you'll find many other references from other parties as well.

Happy Reading!

Once again, another Multnomah faculty-authored book is proving to be worth the effort it took to write it and important enough for more organizations not  named "Multnomah" to promote its merits!

Huge National Spread

Christianity Today magazine gave it a fantastic treatment when they condensed it down into a 4-page article with custom artwork in their August 2009 issue. This isn't just a book review - it is actually part of the book with Dr. Paul Louis Metzger of the Seminary and Dr. Brad Harper of the Bible College credited as the authors.

Not Just a Textbook

Even though the book is accessible to anyone who wants to read it - and you should if you can - it is also going to be used in the classroom at other institutions. So, it's kind of making an impact.

Discussing Black Liberation Theology

On 10/30/2008, Multnomah teamed up with North Portland Bible College to discuss the issues surrounding Black Liberation Theology with the Georgene Rice Radio Show.

Why?
With the unique election season we've been in, the subject has been brought into the mainstream media. Georgene Rice and Multnomah thought that providing accurate information about Black Liberation Theology would be a helpful antidote to the cursory (and sometimes wrong) descriptions that have peppered media broadcasts in the past months.

Special Thanks

  • Georgene Rice for her willingness to educate the Portland and Seattle Metro areas
  • Dr. LeRoy Haynes, President of North Portland Bible College for providing his perspective
  • Drs. Brad Harper and Paul Louis Metzger for being willing to discuss the issues of the day

Note:
I'm so grateful for the diversity of thought and academic freedom that is evident in Christian Higher Education. I truly enjoy seeing the different views and debates from differing perspectives on campus. Furthermore, the fact that Multnomah, as an institution, takes no stand on political subjects or candidates seems to really free up the individuals here to discuss freely - and that's a good thing.

Multnomah's Perspective:
Read our Doctrinal Statement to know our official word on theological subjects. We are a community with many different voices - but the one that ultimately represents MU can be found in this very useful document.
