I grew up in fundamentalist churches which lived by the creed that "we have no creed but Christ." These same churches were not much interested in doctrine or theology (except when it came to refuting Mormons and JW's). Those interested in doctrine had "head" knowledge, while Christians who were truly giving their all to Jesus had hearts filled with love. One of things I really appreciated about Reformed theology when I first encountered it was that it allowed me to integrate mind and heart.
So, it came as a bit of a surprise when I came across this little "gem" on the Christian Reformed Church's website, "Church Planters or Undertakers?" (h.t. the Aquila Report). The essay opens with this remarkable piece of insight. "Too many seminaries are turning out graduates who are good preachers and can serve as the resident theologians of their churches, instead of graduating ministers whose heart and passion is to start new churches to help further the Kingdom of God." I think I've heard this before. If you have "head knowledge" and a heart of stone, you can read the article here: Mind v. Heart
Speaking of integrating mind and heart, Rev. Wes Bradenhof has posted links to MP3 files of the Heidelberg Catechism. This is a great way to learn the catechism. The version of the catechism being used is the CanRC version. Heidelberg Catechism on MP3
