With Roots and Branches

Asia Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary Inaugural Address: April 4, 2003.  The title of my address on this occasion, “With Roots and Branches,” is borrowed and modified from a metaphor used by a Jewish Rabbi by the name of Eugene Levy. Applying these metaphors to APNTS, I believe our primary purpose of theological education is to help people become deeply rooted in its traditions and help them branch out with new thoughts and new scope of the concepts of ministry. It should make us deeply rooted in our Christian tradition and at the same time branch out in a creative and innovative manner, neither to the exclusion of the other. With this in mind, I would like to share some thoughts on what my vision is for APNTS.
