Moore College School of Theology 2012: Exploring the Psalms

Each year, Moore College in Sydney runs a two-day conference on a biblical / theological topic. This year’s topic was the Psalms. As I said in a Vox Pop during the conference, I really appreciated the way in which all the presenters demonstrated an obvious love of God, nurtured by and expressed through a love of the Psalms. There was a combination of careful reading of the Scriptures, rich theological reflection, deep devotion and prayer, and expressions of practical pastoral and preaching ministry. These factors weren’t isolated from each other or set off against each other; rather, they were integrated and informed each other. That’s a very special thing in the world of academic theological education!
