It was fun to join Dan Churchwell for breakfast this morning. Dan is 2001 graduate of Central Seminary. He went on for further education, then taught in several institutions of higher learning. Dan is now the Associate Director of Program Outreach for the Acton Institute.

The Acton Institute is one of the most important present-day conservative think tanks. It focuses primarily on economic issues. While it is not a specifically Christian organization, it recognizes the importance of core Judeo-Christian ideas for a free and virtuous society. Its publications and seminars are valuable tools that more Christians (including fundamentalists) should take advantage of.
