...this morning for Pr. Curtis and myself to visit for a wee bit with the famous Dr. John Stephenson. I only regret that we had so very little time. His works are simply stellar - his dogmatics on eschatology (in the way of the law and the gospel, micro and macro) and the Lord's Supper, and lately his translation of Loehe's Aphorisms on the Ministry which has not garnered the attention it deserves. And he has finger on so many aspects of the Church's current struggles around the world. I still hope some day to plan a conference down this way that has him as the featured speaker on the topic of the intersection of eschatology and the Eucharist. Wouldn't that be wonderful? I'm such a lousy planner for such things. Sigh. I'm definitely inspired to add it to my to do list, though.
