In a new “From the Associate Dean’s Desk” post entitled, “They’re Not Dancing,” Dr. Steele discusses an understandable but undeniable mistake.

“It’s an evocative devotional image and a suggestive theological idea – but it’s based on a linguistic faux pas nonetheless. It’s a mistake I have heard several colleagues make in lunchroom conversations, and it’s one that I myself used to make in my own lectures, until I learned better a few years ago. [….] But now that I have found even the venerable and beloved Eugene Peterson guilty of it – and now that I have this blog in constant need of fresh material – I must speak out.”

What mistake would inspire an entire blog post, you must wonder?
