I have the privilege of serving on the Executive Committee of the EAI, where I represent (technically) our seminary. Most of the members of the Ex-Comm live in or around Jerusalem, so I am also able to provide in a very limited manner some input from largely-Arab evangelical communities in Ha Zafon (the North).
Earlier this week EAI had its Annual General Meeting in Yad Ha Shmona, where we heard some very interesting lectures from a well-respected contextual theologian who spoke on the development of some aspects of Gospel-influenced Jewish theology. Under the leadership of our General Secretary we had a fine meeting. I was happy to catch up with a number of friends and colleagues there, like Roger Elbel and David Pileggi. And lunch was delicious too.
Afterwards, the Ex-Comm along with the Control Committee gathered for a brief meeting.
