The kids in Spain

Or kids attend a school that Sharon and I really appreciate–Colegio el Porvenir. This school was founded by a German Protestant some 120 years ago when Protestant children in Spain had a very, very difficult time finding decent education. This is a recent class picture of our youngest daughter’s 2nd grade class going on a field trip here in Madrid.

All of this to say we’re thankful for this trilingual school, the fruit of German missionary work here over a century ago.

PS: Our daughter is the blond one on the right leaning against her teacher.

I was born in Montana and grew up in Colorado and Puebla (in Mexico). I completed a BA in philosophy at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and then an MA in theology at St Mary's University (also in San Antonio). Later life took me to Jordan where my wife and I studied Arabic, to Israel where I helped found a seminary, and to Scotland for doctoral work, among other places. I live in Madrid now where I teach and minister. I'm highly interested in the interactions of Islam, Christianity and secularism in modern contexts. My main areas of research for my PhD in divinity were religious conversion from Islam to Christianity, contextual theology, and the shari'a's treatment of apostates. I've also published research on global Anglicanism and the history of Anglican mission in the Ottoman Empire. I've had the pleasure of teaching in many places over the years: from Costa Rica to Turkey, and Kenya to Tunisia. I am associate professor at the Protestant Faculty of Theology at Madrid (UEBE) and priest at the Anglican Cathedral of the Redeemer in Madrid, Spain.
