The Centre for Christian Studies is pleased to announce the new position of Chair of Contextual Theology. This is the chair, seen here:
You may not be able to tell from the picture, but this particular chair is labeled with a piece of masking tape that says, “wobbly.” (Feel free to make your own theological interpretations.)
Former CCS students might recognize this chair, though it has perhaps been reupholstered since the 1960s. This chair and its colleagues made the trip from Toronto when the CCS moved to Winnipeg. It has seen many students (though perhaps not their most flattering sides). And like its sister and brother chairs, it is showing its age.
That’s why the chair is getting a new position, maybe in somebody’s office or living room.
Tomorrow we’re having a bunch of new chairs delivered. Hopefully they will support future generations of students as they learn, grow, and work out their wobbly theology.
