“The Friday Connect” is a place in which I hope to share good quality content that I come across during my week. It drops every Friday! Here are a few highlights I would like to share.
– This could potentially be the best church website the world has ever seen… EVER! Turn out the lights, crank your computer speakers and watch it. Like I said, best website ever! Ladies and Gentlemen… The Evangelical Cathedral!
– Scot McKnight engages material from Tim and Kathy Keller’s new book about marriage. This is very helpful in understanding what “Marriage as covenant” really means.
– Yesterday I posted about why I may not go to seminary. Here is an article by Ched Myers that brilliantly articulates some concerns yet brings the conversation to a whole new level. Download the pdf. (HT to Jamie Arpin Ricci for the link). Between the seminary, the sanctuary and the streets: Reflections on alternative theological education.
– Micheal Frost is one of my favorite authors. He has written some material that has been significantly formative for me. The most significant being “The shaping of things to come.” I managed to stumble across a great quote by him on why he writes in a facebook comment thread. I think this post is as good as any to share it.
“I write because I have to, because I couldn’t be fully all that I am without writing, because writing is like a kind of sacrament through which I experience the grace and favor of God. I reckon it’s a bonus if anyone publishes it.”
Peace and all good.
