Four Questions to Ask Ourselves as We Adjust to a New Political Reality

I have recently posted a number of articles on politics, in particular about where Evangelicals find themselves as the new President of the United States is inaugurated and how our witness has been damaged as a result of this election (Rebuilding Our Witness: Part 1, Part 2). ...

Rebuilding Our Witness (Part 2): Developing an Understanding of the Connection of Love & Evangelism in Light of Our New Political Climate

A Christian worldview embraces two things: the Great Commandment and the Great Commission

In Part 1, I talked about why we are at a time when we need to step back and assess how we view the world and the lens we apply to all that we see and do. I talked about a Christian worldview that holds in one hand the Great Commandment and in the other the Great Commission. ...

Rebuilding Our Witness (Part 1): Why It's Time to Take a Second Look at Our Christian Worldview in Light of Our New Political Climate

A Christian worldview embraces two things: the Great Commandment and the Great Commission

In my neighborhood is a sign that reads, “No matter where you come from, we are glad you are our neighbor.” It’s a simple sign that does two important things.

As The Year Turns

Professor shares poetry from Milton and Donne.
Well, so that is that. Now we must dismantle the tree, Putting the decorations back into their cardboard boxes— Some have got broken—and carrying them up to the attic. The holly and the mistletoe must be taken down and burnt, And the children got ready for school. ...

Can We Evangelize Late Modern Culture?

We cannot assume a shared foundation.

Many Christians can identify the good in Christianity but wonder if it really has to be pushed on others. Do we have to evangelize? Is it even considerate?
