On Becoming Wise Together

Learning and Leading in the City
  • By Maria Liu Wong
Product Description

Theological education is for whole communities, not just individuals.

Urban ministry reaches across the city's socioeconomic, ethnic, generational, and faith boundaries. All should be able to gather at the table and find God's peace. How can theological education in the city further this goal?

Maria Liu Wong addresses this question through the lens of her experience as a British-Chinese immigrant to Long Island, a missionary kid, a wife and mother, and the provost of City Seminary of New York. Using autoethnographic methodology, Liu Wong presents anecdotes and images from her life, with which she thinks broadly about how theological education functions in the city, both formally and informally. What she finds is that theological education is less about individuals accruing knowledge and more about communities growing in wisdom together--as a family, as friends, as colleagues, as coleaders. In these pages, seminary and university professors will find ways to learn with and from not just individual students, but the communities they comprise. Pastors and ministry leaders will find inspiration and encouragement in the ways our lives form our faith and future in the city.
