Professor Larry Sibley to lead a workshop
Professor Larry Sibley will be leading a workshop on Faith and Order and Theological Education: Student Experience in the Philadelphia Area InterSeminary Seminar, at "Celebrating 50 Years of Faith and Order: 1957-2007" to be held at Oberlin College, July 19-23, 2007. Mr. Sibley teaches the InterSeminary Seminar course each fall at Westminster, in cooperation with four other Philadelphia area seminaries (Baptist, Catholic, Lutheran, and Moravian). He will be accompanied at the Oberlin workshop by a group of former InterSeminary students who will share their experience and demonstrate the seminar discussion process.

The Faith and Order movement of the World and National Councils of Churches provides a framework for discussion, clarification, and understanding of each other's theology and order. In the InterSeminary Seminar, Westminster students gain first-hand experience in listening carefully in order to understand other Christian traditions and in presenting the Reformed faith to others.
