Threshing Floor. Live from New Room 2015.
Chad and Joshua sit down with the Rev. Dr. Andrew Thompson, senior pastor of First United Methodist in Springdale, Arkansas. Andrew also holds a doctorate of Theology from Duke University. He has spent time in college ministry, local church ministry, teaching in seminary and is now the pastor of a large, vital congregation in Arkansas.
Chad and Joshua have a conversation with Andrew about what it means to be a pastoral theologian and why it matters to carry your education into the pulpit. We also have a raucous good time with another Southern boy at the expense of Joshua.
Andrew is also part of the podcast Behind the Sermon. It is an experiment in public theology in reference to the weekly preaching event. Make sure to check it out here.
