Morning Roundup 3/20/14
Here is a helpful list from Brad. I've had the privilege of connecting with most of the groups and I'm encouraged to see the care and passion that they bring.
Michael Wear is a fascinating duck (an evangelical advisor to President Obama on faith issues). I've never met him (though we tried a couple of times), but I imagine we would talk (and argue) but become friends. His words here are worth your consideration.
Controversy over Seminary Speaker Invite Tempered by Student's Death—Sarah Eekhof Zylstra
This is a fascinating and tragic story. I know Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori and I've taught at Nashotah House (in partnership with Gordon Conwell). I know (and care for) many of the players involved, having worked extensively with ACNA)— I'll even be preaching at Truro Anglican this summer.
Simply put, the whole situation is heartbreaking. I know there are evangelicals in The Episcopal Church, and I am thankful for them (for example, my friend Greg Brewer) and I understand the desire for unity, but I don't know how that can ever come as moments like this illustrate.
Preston Parrish, Vice President with Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, joined Ed Stetzer in studio to discuss the state of evangelism and the BGEA's My Hope America evangelistic campaign. In this clip, we talk about the key of spreading the gospel. Don't forget to join me every Tuesday at 3:00 PM Eastern for The Exchange.
