Christianity Today has a fasctinating article highlighting contextualization. In this case, it's not just contextualization to broader culture, but-- since the culture itself is so connected to its prevalent religion-- it's contextualization to religious practices in broader culture.

The Baptist Bearing Robes and Incense -- William E. Yoder

I'm a huge U2 fan-- and recently went to their concert here in Nashville.

I'm also intrigued by Bono's faith, which he describes more here.

This article has people talking. Needless to say, I disagree with much of its premise, as my wife is stay-at-home mom, but it's worth reading and considering how people think. (And, let me add, that it is not wrong or sinful to be a working mother.)
