Foundational Stories 3 (Campmeeting 2014)

This is the final piece of the discussion.  We finally got an audience mic, so this discussion features a number of voices other than our own.  They make some great contributions.  Among other things, we explore the difference between the Greek "Being" and the Hebrew "walking"--in terms of how God relates to humanity; the need for personal involvement; and the relationship between our evangelism and our picture of God.  Thanks to everyone who participated.  We're planning to present a new series at Campmeeting 2016, featuring more great discussion and shared exploration.  In the meantime, enjoy!

PS: There won't be a podcast next week because it will be Christmas.  In the new year, we'll continue with the next presentation.

Foundational Stories 2 (Campmeeting 2014)

We're back.  This week is part 2 of 3 from our second day presenting.  I managed to clean up the sound quite a bit, so I'll be updating last weeks podcast, as well.

As the discussion continues, we spend some time in discussion and exploring the significance of Sabbath, the Second Coming and what all this has to do with language learning.  Among other things, we talk more about context and how language and belief without context leaves us without the ability to speak and act in a way that reflects our "knowledge."

Thanks again for listening.

Foundational Stories 1 (Campmeeting 2014)

We're back!  I (David) apologize for the lack of a podcast last weekend.  I was preaching at my local church and forgot about the podcast entirely.  If you're interested, let me know and I can post a link to it.

This week begins the second session from our Story presentations at Campmeeting 2014.  We entitled it "Foundational Stories."  Underlying the small stories we tell are larger stories about what stories are and how we should relate to them.  Technically, this can be termed "foundational philosophy."  To begin the presentation, Dale and I talked about how each of us began to grapple with foundational stories through our own (academic) experiences.  This is one of my favourite presentations because we lay out many of the guiding ideas that have shaped the rest of our thought.  It's great listening to it again and being reminded of these things.

I hope you enjoy listening.
