Encounters With Tradition (Series at Faith and Theology)
A few years back, Ben Myers, an Australian Anglican theologian and blogger, edited a series of guest posts on his great blog, Faith and Theology called “Encounters with Tradition.” It explored theological traditions by means of first-hand testimonies by those converted to them from other traditions. Since I was raised United Methodist and became a Baptist, I contributed the 5th entry, “Becoming a Global [b]aptist.” All seven entries in the series are worth reading and I wish Ben would revive the series by asking for other contributions–especially since all of the writers are white and male.

Michael L. Westmoreland-White, Ph.D. Former academic theologian turned peace activist and educator. Married to the Rev. Kate Westmoreland-White, a Baptist minister who works at a Catholic charity for homeless people (St. Vincent de Paul Society). This is a theological blog from an Anabaptist, Social Gospel, and Liberation perspective. I expect Christians to be in permanent exile while the Lord tarries–not primarily citizens of their home countries, but of the Rule of God and the global church. I hope to interact with perspectives from around the world, although my own origin and social location remains in the U.S. South and among Blue Collar people.

Your author as a Church Father
You’re St. Justin Martyr!
You have a positive and hopeful attitude toward the world. You think that nature, history, and even the pagan philosophers were often guided by God in preparation for the Advent of the Christ. You find “seeds of the Word” in unexpected places. You’re patient and willing to explain the faith to unbelievers.
