Okay, this is a part of C.J. Mahaney's interview with Sinclair Ferguson, and it's good, but I'm only linking to it because I love the lines from the hymn quoted therein:
"O Jesus! full of pardoning grace,—
More full of grace than I of sin."
He is more full of grace than we are of sin.
Thank. God. 'Cause I'm pretty full of it.
Francis Chan has a video blog.
I'm looking forward to this upcoming resource: Missional in Suburbia
Rob Harrison reflects on the ascension.
Another Element has appeared in town. I am picturing a greasers vs. socs rumble on the horizon. ;-)
This is interesting (for a few reasons).
But let's be honest: we preach the undiluted gospel without compromise or spin not because it's what this generation wants, although I agree that it is, but because it's what every generation needs.
In other words, this "new" approach to preaching is not a marketing strategy based on demographic research. It's fidelity to Christ and the gospel of his kingdom, and to the Scriptures that proclaim them.
