Welcome to the fourteenth (14th) issue of ARPTalk. Featured in ARPTalk(14) are the following articles:
- (14.1) LETTERS AND THINGS – a letter by Erskine College student, Mr. Jay Brantner, “A Letter We Needed to Read”
- (14.2) A CHRONICLE OF THE LONG FAILURE OF GENERAL SYNOD TO OVERSEE ERSKINE COLLEGE AND SEMINARY, (1976 – 2008)
The first article is a letter from an Erskine student, Mr. Jay Brantner. Mr. Brantner is a senior math major. He joins fellow students, Mr. Daniel Stephens and Mr. Scott Cook, in registering complaints regarding the lack of evangelical Christian understanding and commitment on the part of the Erskine administrative and faculty. Particularly, Mr. Brantner’s letter is an “Amen” to Mr. Stephens’ letter in ARPTalk(11).
“A Chronicle of the Long Failure of General Synod to Oversee Erskine College and Seminary (1976 – 2008)” is an article written by the Editor. The timeframe, 1976 – 2008, coincides with the Editor’s ministry in the ARPC. 1976 is not the first year that the Editor attended a meeting of the General Synod; however, 1976 is the year of the Editor’s ordination, and the 1976 General Synod is the first meeting of the General Synod that the Editor attended as a voting delegate. The Editor’s research of the Minutes of General Synod, 1976-2008, is a painful study of lassitude and inaction on the part of General Synod and rebellion and disingenuousness on the part of EC/ETS. The chronicling of this history is long and very troubling. The reading of this history is only for “mature” ARPs who love the ARPC and EC/ETS.
