Seminaries are obsolete

Matt Cleaver seems to think so anyway. Quoting Doug Pagitt:

going to seminary he was being trained for an industry that was dying and would likely cease to exist (and that those of us in seminary should think about that). He compared it to being trained as a typewriter repairman in the late 80s. 

One thought on “Seminaries are obsolete

  1. Come to think of it, my seminary was well-aware of the obsolescence of the institution. Perhaps that’s why they didn’t teach me administration, but scripture and peace-making. Perhaps, my seminary was actually ahead of the curve, not behind it (wasn’t professor Wesley ahead of the CoEngland, not behind it?). Perhaps spending the last 3 years learning the institution’s leanings has been my sin and no one else’s. Just thinking.
