Because Weedman writes so much on education I wonder what all of your thoughts are on this program. Essentially it is a Bible College Degree with a one year M.Div (technically 1 year + a summer term). My MA will have taken twice that long @ full-time let alone the length and cost of the M.Div.

What do you Seminary attendees/graduates think? Is this a step in the right direction or do you feel as though you need the extra couple years from a vocational standpoint? I will withhold my opinion for a while : )

I don't mind this either. They're saying that their undergraduate program covers a lot of what they would normally do in the MDiv, so why overlap? I would want to do that were we ever to start an MDiv. My question is why is there so much overlap? A lot of the upper division courses seem to repeats of lower division courses. Were it me, I would let the upper division courses be a combo of internship and pastoral care training (i.e. CPE units) and upper level seminars in theology and exegesis. But the idea is a good one.

Not only are we a denomination in the eyes of CT (and probably most people), we are also the Cleveland Browns of the church league.

I understand this conversation is wonkish and  hardly necessary, but I am always up for a debate (and to avoiding homework).

This is hardly 4Cs country. Any perceptions that the church spectrum may have of the SCM are borne out of this area, not from the Midwest where the distinction between church of Christ and Christian Church is hardly available. Down here if you are church of Christ you are non-instrumental and sectarian by nature (churches will be nuanced in these views as well, but for characterizations sake...), believing, again, that the church somehow died and rose again with Campbell, Stone, and Raccoon Smith (he is the local East TN connection who acted as a surrogate for Campbell to make the Stone Campbell agreement official).

One may find non-instrumental churches of Christ sprinkled throughout Minnesota, but the the lion share are actually Churches of Christ which are part of the independent Churches of Christ/Christian Churches. I will admit that the smaller country style 4Cs would tend to be more conservative and therefore would hold to the belief that they were part of this delineation known as the Cleveland Browns, but they are indeed instrumentalists who would hold to their independent nature. 

That all being said, before I came to the conclusion (circa 1998) that I was part of a quasi-failure of a movement turned denomination, I was told to consider myself non-denominational which confused the heck out of people. The article differentiated the Church of Christ and Disciples of Christ so why not squeeze the third stream in there as the Dallas Cowboys?

Gross characterizations being what they are I can understand why it is easy to shoe horn any number of traditions into like-type teams. I do, however, think it is important to realize the landscape of where one is from and to characterize this area as 4C country when there is clearly more disparity here than in Minnesota is erroneous.

Regardless of how you feel about Boyd this is well put: "... many Christians have tragically allowed their patriotism to co-opt their faith. They have allowed their American citizenship to take priority over their Kingdom citizenship -- despite the New Testament's instruction for disciples to consider themselves "foreigners" and "exiles" wherever they happen to live (Heb. 11:13; I Pet 1:17, 2:11) and to consider their real citizenship "in heaven" (Phil 3:20)."

Just because you keep reciting "Christian Nation", it does not make the claim true.
