The Way of Jesus in the World of Today
As we ease into the summer months here at Osprey Point I am excited to share with you a number of recent Academy developments. On May 19 we were proud to graduate our tenth class of Fellows. We are grateful for your support and prayers in helping us reach this milestone, and we celebrate the fact that we now have 112 Academy Alumni around the world serving faithfully in families, churches, and a diversity of careers and graduate programs.
One month earlier we reached another significant achievement in the life of the Academy. On April 2 Dr. John Templeton, Jr. hosted a panel discussion with six Academy Alumni to examine critical cultural assumptions and the risks they pose to our society and the church. The event was an incredible platform for our Alumni to develop critical thinking about their current career fields based on their Academy experience. I encourage you to read more about the event and the topics our Alumni covered below.
Also included in this update is a link to our most recent media post, alum Jamin Brophy-Warren's talk on video games from our annual conference. Jamin's work with Kill Screen Magazine was recently honored by TIME Magazine which named their blog one of the best blogs of 2011 . Along with Nigel Cameron's talk "Innovation and the Imago Dei
", Jamin's material from our conference on technology demonstrates how the Academy seeks to engage the most pressing issues of our day with a Christian model of incarnation and redemption.
