What Every White, Twenty-Something, Seminary Male Needs To Remember

This is something I needed to hear numerous times during my theological education (and still do):

I ain’t saying you’re not special in, like, your mother was a liar kinda way. You are special. You are a wonderful, unique child of God. But you’re also not God. Or John Calvin. Or Augustine. Or da Pope. Or any of the many Karls. You don’t have all the answers. Nor is your majority-member theological perspective anything unique and mind-blowing. So have some humble pie. Ask more questions, give less answers.

That’s my advice to you and myself. For what ’tis worth.
