Didache Volume 23 Number 2

Last Updated: Thursday, 25 April 2024

INTRODUCTION

Dean G. Blevins, Editor

Welcome Didache: Faithful Teaching Volume 23, number 2. This special edition includes responses from around the world in preparation for our Global Theology Conference, “In the Power of the Spirit” (Luke 4:14), to be held in April 2024. The journal published the original plenary papers in Volume 22, number 1 (November 2022) to allow for each global region to review written responses, select by region the best responses for the conference, and offer those writings translated for conference attendees and for the rest of our reading community. We include the formal introduction for these responses written by Dr. Klaus Arnold, Director of Global Education and Clergy Development, and from Dr. Jeren Rowell, President of Nazarene Theological Seminary. The information now serves as a backdrop for this edition of the journal. 

The plenary papers, in Volume 22:1, centered on one of three themes,

  • Session 1: “In the Power of the Spirit – Holy Spirit” 
    Plenary papers by Dr. Svetlana Khobnya (Eurasia) and Rev. L. Felipe Borduam (South America)
  • Session 2: “In the Power of the Spirit – Holy People”
    Plenary papers by Dr. Rob Fringer (Asia-Pacific) and Dr. Stanley Bhebhe (Africa)
  • Session 3: “In the Power of the Spirit – Hope of New Creation”
    Plenary papers by Dr. Scott Daniels (USA/Canada) and Dr. Ivelisse Valentin-Vera (Mesoamerica) https://didache.nazarene.org/index.php/volume-22-number-1

 

The responses in this edition assure that all six global regions address each theme. We would like to thank our regional education coordinators who guided the discernment process and recommendations for the Global Theology Conference committee. All other recommended papers that did not qualify for the global theology edition will appear in the next edition of Didache: Faithful Teaching (Volume 24:1) by early summer.

We again thank the staff of the Asia Pacific Region, who diligently contribute to formatting and maintaining our website, and Dr. Tammy Carter who works tirelessly promoting Didache: Faithful Teaching, as she does in the development of the Wesleyan Holiness Digital Library (WHDL) https://www.whdl.org/.
