If you are a Christian with a Twitter account, then you probably saw the commotion over the recent meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention. If you feel out-of-the-loop, it went down kind of fast. Here’s some background info for this post. When the proposed resolution to openly condemn the “alt-right” movement initially failed to pass, quite…Continue Reading “On actual church unity”
I hope to continue contributing to Saturate the World on a monthly basis. Please, check out my post on their blog today! This week I wrote a post for Jeff Vanderstelt’s Saturate the World website. My entire church is positively obsessed with Vanderstelt’s books “Saturate” and “Gospel Fluency“. I’ve got both of his books…Continue Reading “Post for Saturate: Making disciples as a special needs family.”
