John Smulo, a personal friend and fellow Community of Hope co-conspirator, has now formally announced he’s leaving his job as head of the School of Apologetics at Morling Collage, Sydney, and is heading back to northern California to plant a church after the 13th of January 2006.
To provide a bit of context for my Emergent readers outside of Sydney, John works alongside Mike Frost at the collage, has written widely on contextualizing the Christian message for Satanists (i.e. the real ones rather than the fictitious characters of Christian Urban Legend and Deliverance Ministry imaginings) and generally goes for the Anton LeVey look (or at least we think so). You’ll find some of his writings at Sacred Tribes. You Yanks don’t know what a teriffic guy you’re getting. All the best John.
