B.C. Evangelicals like encyclical

Dr. Jonathan S. Raymond
The Pope's new encyclical on social justice is getting a warm welcome, including from some local Protestants. Academics at Trinity Western University in Langley, which the Catholic Redeemer Pacific College is affiliated with, are among the signatories to an Aug. 18 letter signed by 68 leaders from academia, para-church organizations, magazines and think tanks. The local signatories include Trinity Western University’s Laurentian Leadership Centre director Janet Epp Buckingham; Michael W. Goheen, Geneva Professor of Worldview and Religious Studies; and Trinity Western University President Jonathan S. Raymond (above). Also signing was Paul Williams, David Brown Family Chair of Marketplace Theology and Leadership at Regent College in Vancouver.
