  • Will shared from The Space Between (Cultural Exegesis): A Christian Engagement with the Built Environment by Eric O. Jacobsen
    Wherever there are people, there is community. We must start there. Our particular community may need a major overhaul of its zoning codes, or it may need some more visiting among neighbors. If it is a place in the United States, it probably needs both. In either case, the church and the Christians in that community have a distinct and vital role to play.
    Note: Christianty as a religion isn't just missional, it's urbanist, and the two play off each other.
  • Will shared from You Lost Me: Why Young Christians Are Leaving Church...and Rethinking Faith by David Kinnaman, Aly Hawkins
    Most Christian organizations create a culture that dissuades confession. We create codes of conduct for youth that we either don’t live by or strive to live by without confessing our failures. All this does is create a dissonance that eventually deconstructs into a hypocritical church. Instead of policies that help sinners rebound, we create communities that isolate sinners, either from the community by expulsion or within themselves because they have to keep sin hidden (leading a double life). Honor codes essentially become “don’t ask, don’t tell” documents—it’s no wonder so many...

  • Will shared from Christian Classics: Six books by Charles Spurgeon in a single collection, with active table of contents [Annotated] by Charles Spurgeon
    Repentance will not make you see Christ; but to see Christ will give you repentance. You may not make a Christ out of your repentance, but you must look for repentance to Christ. The Holy Ghost, by turning us to Christ, turns us from sin. Look away, then, from the effect to the cause, from your own repenting to the Lord Jesus, who is exalted on high to give repentance.
    Note: Repentance is not somthing you do for God. It's something God does *for you.* Massive implications!
