A Brigham Young University Professor's Escape from MormonismLynn K. Wilder

Yesterday, I weighed in on Mornomism against and mentioned this story. Here is a longer excerpt.

Today is a Day of Possibilities — Sterling Brackett

One of the things I do regularly is read the newsletters of several denominations. When I worked with The Foursquare, we talked about the importance of a consistent communication with churches, and that communication has to reflect the mission and values of the denomination. I appreciate the ongoing communication from the Foursquare and love the fact that they pray for their leaders.

Faith & Reason blog lives: New home, new questions, same writerCathy Lynn Grossman

Cathy Grossman, formerly of USAToday and now gumshoeing at the Religion News Service, is back blogging. Her stuff riles folks up, which can be fun to watch, so bookmark her blog now!

A few weeks ago, I hosted DJ Chuang, Elizabeth Drury, and Mark DeYmaz for a discussion on multicultural churches. All three guests were in town for the Turnaround 2020 conference and we did a live conversion about an area they are all "in"—multicultural ministry. It's worth your time. I am also in a series of articles from Asian American leaders (my current "Thursday is for Thinkers" series), and DJ will be sharing more about Asian Americans on Thursday. By the way, I am at the Multiethnic Church Conference right now with the very speakers you can watch on this video (though the conference is better!). Don't forget to join me every Tuesday at 3:00 PM Eastern for The Exchange.

Carter serves as the Pastor of Preaching & Vision at the Austin Stone Community Church in Austin, Texas, which has grown from a core team of 15 to over 7,000 attending each Sunday since the church began in 2002. He co-authored For the City, which explored what it would look like for a local church to be an advocate for the welfare of the city, and The Real Win (lfwy.co/RBeOEQ), a book on biblical manhood co-authored by NFL quarterback Colt McCoy.

He has also co-authored two group studies, Creation Unraveled and Creation Restored, which traced the gospel message through the book of Genesis.

Carter holds an M.Div. from Southwestern Seminary and is pursuing a D.Min. in Expositional Preaching from Southeastern Seminary. He and his wife Jennifer have been married for 16 years, and they have three children, John Daniel, Annie, and Samuel.
