The Church Land Theology Project (CLTP) is looking for small groups of folks who have something to say about their relationship with church land. This can be anyone from grounds volunteers to pastors; anyone who cares for and cares about the land that a church body occupies. Over the coming months, Andrew Hudson will be interviewing small groups about their relationship with land for a future publication.
The CLTP is a joint project of MCCN and Mennonite Men that aims to give voice to the wisdom and theological insights of people who work with church land. By ‘church land,’ they mean congregational, college, seminary, or any other land corporately owned. “By holding land together,” says CLTP staffer Andrew Hudson, “church people have the possibility of a group relationship with the land–of belonging to it. That belonging was a key part of the worldview of the Old Testament, and it was a key part of the scriptures that shaped Jesus.”
Andrew is coordinating the project as his internship at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. There, he is pursuing a Masters of Divinity degree in Pastoral Ministry. Andrew worked in organic agriculture before coming to AMBS, a background that is helpful in designing conversation questions.
