The great project of our generation is to reclaim biblical Christianity as the Church. This will inevitably involve standing up and articulating with far more precision exactly what Christianity actually is. It has become almost a trite statement in recent years that our culture has abandoned the Christian faith. This actually is not my greatest concern. My greatest concern is that those of us who are pastors and leaders have ourselves forgotten the gospel.
Rescued from Isolation:
Pastor, I've got good news for you: you are not alone! By God's grace there are other pastors just like you on the other side of town, and profound blessings await if you simply make a habit of meeting together for lunch. That obvious truth is easy to overlook. I certainly ignored it for too long.
Reality TV and Religion Give Birth to Top Baby Names:
"Celebrity naming is just about the exposure and about everybody hearing that name at the same time," Wattenberg said. "It's not about the fame, it's about the name."
Religion continues to have a big influence on baby names, but with a twist.
Jon Acuff Misses Sunday School:
Dear Sunday School,
Wow, where do I even begin? It's been so long since we last talked. Fifteen years at least. I used to go see you in college on the Sundays I would go to church. There you were, faithful and true. No jumping around during the week for you. Like an old friend, you were always waiting for me in the same spot each week. At church, spooning right up against the service.
I could double dip.
I could knock out both at once. Church and Sunday School were the perfect team, like chocolate and peanut butter, frog and toad, Kim Kardashian and a professional athlete/Kanye.
