Seminary Talk vs. Lay Language

If you are a pastor and have been to seminary, you really need to read this post by Scot McKnight. By now, you know that I find Scot’s posts to be consistently good, but this one is very important. I had the experience last week for maybe the first time. I said something about eschatology as if everyone in the world would know what it meant, and my layfolks stopped me and said, “Wait a second preacher…escha-whatogy?!” God bless them; I needed that. I’m thankful that they were not afraid to ask me that immediately.
