Marrying Young; Worship or Concert?; Decline in Religion; When Discipleship Begins |
Morning Roundup 06/04/13

I'm a believer in young marriage. Donna and I married at twenty, and we also grew up together. Mark Regnerus provides a statistical case. Karen Swallow Prior makes a cultural argument.

Both are worth your time, as is this article from Jen Hatmaker.

Justin Taylor expresses an important concern-- worship is not a concert, and he explains the difference. The reality is that louder music is a cultural phenomenon, and one that I think churches will embrace-- people want to hear themselves less when they sing than when the did a century ago. Yet, if they can't hear "others," than it is just a concert.
