Should parents and all those who support Trinity Western University be concerned about some of these events in the fall/spring chapel line up and the direction they may be leading students? Has contemplative spiritual formation and Roman Catholic mysticism got anything to do with true biblical worship? What about NT Wright’s “new” perspectives on Paul for which he is so well known?

Is this something that concerns you?

Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. Acts 20:28
