The first Roundtable focused on the topic of eschatology; from there topics have included pastoring human sexuality, the "Already, Not Yet" dynamic of the kingdom, gospel ethics, and recent moves of God ("From Charismatic to Kerygmatic"). The result in each case has been an invigorating, edifying and productive time of fellowship and discussion around aspects of theology that have been ignored because of controversy, or exploited based on poor understanding of Scriptural interpretation and worldview. All who have participated are agreed that it is worthwhile to continue these discussions.
Once again, we are planning the Theological Roundtable at Tesoro Escondido, and this year we are focusing on an exciting theme:
A Theology of Public Worship
October 23-25, 2018
Tesoro Escondido Ranch
Mineral Wells, Texas
We want to examine the theological foundations of public, corporate worship (the "worship service") and the practical considerations that arise from that foundation. Our focus on this topic is motivated by a concern that the public worship in our churches help our people engage God and be equipped as full-time worshipers. Let's talk about it on the banks of the Brazos River!
Take a moment to hear Dudley's thoughts about the topic and the event.
The Theological Roundtable is by invitation only. If you have been invited it is because we believe you are a key player in the leadership of the church. Your voice will impact thousands as the generational influence continues. It will be well worth your investment to be a part of these vital discussions. Also, I value your opinions and perspectives in regard to these issues. Your perspective needs to be included. There will be several papers presented and discussions will follow the presentations.
This Roundtable Discussion will take place October 23-25, 2018, at the Tesoro Escondido Ranch near Mineral Wells, Texas. If you’ve never been there, it is a beautiful retreat facility on a bluff overlooking the Brazos River approximately 1½ hours west of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The cost inclusive of meals and lodging is $275. We’ll begin with an opening session at 3:00 PM on Tuesday, October 23 followed by dinner, and we'll conclude with lunch on Thursday, October 25.
