Over the last few years there has been an attempt to understand and succintly draw some conclusions about the cultural shift taking place in our world – we used to say in our Country but it can no longer be limited so. Often people respond dismissively when they do not understand a given subject. Other times they react with vigor and venom – a railing if you will.
In my position I have been want to find in one place a sort of summary of how I have come to understand what is taking place and how I feel about it. (I understand that I now have violated one of the cardinal rules of blogging – limit the use of “I.” However, I am offering commentary on myself. Soon I will break another rule by embedding a link rather than state the case myself.) Someone who has had a similar background, is a bit older – and maybe wiser, and continues ot pastor in the midst of huge shifts in theolgocial reflection and understanding while still holding high the power of the gospel of Christ offers a great statement. Albeit a response to an article by Chuck Colson, it does a good job of giving a helpful perspective. So here’s to Brian – great job!
