Sentiment or substance?
A familiar Negro Spiritual rightly muses, Everybody talkin’ ‘bout heaven ain’t goin’ there. The truth is, a great deal of lip service is paid in Christian higher education to “integration of faith and learning” or “Christian worldview formation.” These are admirable sentiments but they will remain just that—sentiments, not substance—unless faculty members acquire the requisite knowledge and develop proficiency in the intellectual pursuits that make true integration possible. Your faculty ain’t goin’ there unless you sustain the vision for it and provide the necessary encouragement and opportunities.
