I am very excited to see this piece in the Covenant College newspaper.
Jay D. Green, Professor of History at Covenant, is the managing editor for an online journal called Current. It provides commentary and reflection on culture, politics, and contemporary ideas. According to their “about” page, “we seek to ground ourselves in the broad tradition of American democracy — a tradition whose practices and institutions we believe are moving through a period of great stress and testing. We confess that we once took for granted many of the basic assumptions of our democracy, including a shared core of American values. We no longer do.” The goal of this platform is to aspire to civil free thought and discussion.
Current consists of high-level articles from every end of the political and ideological spectrum. Despite the editors, Green, John Fea, and Eric Miller all being professing Christians, the journal itself is not a religious platform. It aims towards diverse audiences as well as diverse writers. They seek to gage civil and productive conversations, and welcome ideas from believers as well as secular writers who also have a passion for culture.
Miller, Fea, and Green met in seminary and have been friends for almost thirty years. Miller teaches history at Geneva College and Fea teaches history at Messiah University. The site was built on Fea’s popular and widely read blog, “The Way of Improvement Leads Home.”
