About

An Open Orthodoxy is a conversation in pursuit of the ancient and the new, the traditional and the novel, the orthodox and the open. We are friends, Tom and Dwayne, exploring the relationship between the Open View of the future and Eastern Orthodox theology. We wonder what would come of a conversation between the two. So we aim to clarify the theological values of the open view, define its core claims and convictions, establish its diversities, and situate it relative to the values, experience and vision of the ancient Eastern Fathers. It’s our conviction that both can learn something from the other.

Tom is the manager of an Arabic language nonprof. He received his MTh in theology from the University of Wales and served as a missionary in the Middle East for more than twenty years. He is married with four children. Dwayne received his MDiv from Oral Roberts University and served on the pastoral staff at Woodland Hills Church in St. Paul, MN. He is married with four children and lives in Minneapolis, MN.
