Editor's Introduction (Summer 2012)

Greetings and welcome to this edition of Didache: Faithful Teaching, a journal dedicated to exploring the intersections of Wesleyan theology, education, and culture in a global setting. This edition begins twelve years of online publication. We are fortunate to have an excellent blend of senior faculty publications alongside grounded student research. The edition definitely reflects a theological nature, with strong global overtones around themes of moral theology and justice. As in the last edition, I am definitely indebted to our new global editorial team, in particular to Deirdre Brower Latz who also deserves our congratulations as the new Principal of Nazarene Theological College, Manchester. Alongside Deirdre’s encouragement, I have to also express appreciation to both Dwight Swanson and Roger Hahn who agreed (and encouraged) our publications of recent efforts by students and colleagues at both NTC Manchester and Nazarene Theological Seminary. In addition I owe a debt to Dr. Edwin Robinson who contacted me about the good work of a current colleague at Northwest Nazarene University, Dr. Dan Lawrence. Collectively these friends of the journal (whom I am privileged to count as personal friends) provided the type of needed input and suggestions that historically have maintained the flow of quality articles we experience through Didache: Faithful Teaching
