Weekly Wrap – Maybe You Missed These Posts

Pain and Hope Captured In, A Finger Two Dots, Then Me – “We need writers who help get underneath the din of populist opinions and expose the complexity of human emotions and questions.”

The Plane of Poor Discipleship or, President Obama May Have More in Common with Christians Who Refuse Him – “One wonders how it is that President Obama can lay claim to faith in Jesus and hold his position on abortion. I wonder how it is that many Christians lay claim to faith in Jesus who by and with their words wound and murder the character and reputations of others all in the name of biblical or gospel. Maybe what we witness is the two poles on the same plane of poor discipleship in the way and manner of Jesus.”

Conservatives Need Love Too – “Maybe in our discipleship to Jesus we talk more about the way and manner of Jesus’ love such that it becomes the thing that we do when putting the hand to the plow. Rather than looking back and re-investing in the fears from which we have been freed, we move forward plowing the ground with the incomprehensible love of God that shows up in the way we live our lives with and for others.”

Prayers for Guatemala – Friday Photo – “Soon we will make plans for our March trip to Guatemala to work with local pastors. Upon hearing of the recent earthquake I have been thinking of those young men who will serve the needs of those in their areas affected. Even if the quake were miles away, there will be reminders of events like the one in this photo that unsettle residents. Peace to you friends.”
