Who Says Theology Professors are Boring?

I miss Denny and Susan Burk. This wonderful couple lived in Louisville for a few years while Denny attended Southern Baptist Theological Seminary to get his PhD. As active members and leaders in our church, I got to know them through our connections at church. Susan is one of those women that everyone loves. She's the epitome of a "gentle and quiet spirit" and girls would stand in line in hopes of being mentored by her. I miss her smiling face. And, I loved how Susan adored Denny and was quick to point out the reasons why he was God's man for her. She recently was blessed by entering motherhood after the birth of their sweet little girl, Emily. Susan will be a dynamic mother.

Denny is truly one of my favorite theologians. He can take something complex and make it understandable. And, he's not afraid of being goofy, crazy, and just plain real. I like that in a theologian. After Denny obtained his doctorate, he and Susan headed to Dallas where he teaches at Criswell College. And, he teaches young adults at First Baptist Church, Dallas. I even periodically listen to his teaching podcasts from there just to get a dose of Denny. I know that church is blessed by the Burks.

Now for the fun part.....

Denny recently directed this video short that is about the funniest thing I've seen lately. Lest you think all theologians are crotchety old guys...take a look at this....

How Funny Is That! At least we know Susan is not bored.

One of my favorite parts was hearing Susan's laugh...it was like a sneak peek into the Burk household. :)
