Monstrous Revolutions and the Coming Winter

This may be the weirdest thing I’ve ever done. I was asked to give the keynote at GAiN, with the topic: ’Re:formation, Re:volution.’ Thinking outside the box, I decided to talk about Luther’s Mönchkalb and papal-ass, and about Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. Blending Monster Theory and Ecclesiology, accompanied with some close readings of Mr. Fox, I drew some—hopefully interesting—applications for the contemporary Adventist church.

But I warn you: It’s a bit weird.
