I think I’m getting old. The first thing that tipped me off was that I was discovering a growing disdain for any music that I didn’t listen to in high school. Next came my desire for an increase in the analogue-watches, pens, pencils, and books. All these things could easily be replaced with digital versions, but now, I have an appreciation of holding something truly exquisite, truly exceptional in my hands. Fast forward a year or two and I’m holding the most premium Book I’ve ever held in my life- Crossway’s ESV Preaching Bible. [Read more…] about Crossway’s ESV Preaching Bible [Saturday Morning Review]
‘The Irresistible Revolution: Living As An Ordinary Radical’ by Shane Claiborne [Saturday Morning Review]
I love reading a book that has me stopping to copy-paste quotes almost every page— it’s enjoyably annoying.
The Irresistible Revolution was one of those books for me and I am really excited to be sharing it with you today.
The other day someone asked something like, “I know I don’t have the same political views as you, but could you pray for me?” As if their political beliefs would somehow change something for me, or for anyone. It broke me. When did politics get in the way of loving our neighbors? What place do politics have in the Church? These are some of the questions I began asking myself, ones that I hope to answer today.
In the video below John Green asks,
Can you be a Christian without damning those who aren’t?
It’s not a question that we as Christians should ask ourselves, it’s a question that we need to ask ourselves daily.
