A Time to Speak (and Listen)

A couple of weeks ago, several organizations (including The Gospel Coalition) sponsored a roundtable discussion called “A Time to Speak,” encouraging the church universal that at this point in history, following the situations in Ferguson, Staten Island, Ohio and all around the country, we have an opportunity and an obligation to discuss issues of race, racial reconciliation and the church. Appropriately, the discussion took place at Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot more than 35 years ago. As host Bryan Loritts said, “In 1968, conservative evangelicals were mostly silent. In this time, at this moment, conservative evangelicals cannot be silent.” The roundtable featured many prominent evangelical and (mostly) reformed preachers and pastors: Loritts, Dr. Ed Stetzer, Trillia Newbell, Matt Chandler, Dr. Darrin Patrick, Dr. Eric Mason, Dr. John Piper, Thabiti Anyabwile, Dr. Voddie Baucham, Albert Tate and Derwin Gray....Keep Reading

Chesterton and the Year in Review

Jake Phillips writes about why 2014 was such a bad year for American society, and what we can do about it. Should we view it, and the year to come, optimistically? Pessimistically? Some combination of the two? Jake argues that G.K. Chesterton shows a better way: we must simultaneously be irrational pessimists and irrational optimists....Keep Reading

True Peace for Israel

I forget things all the time. Just ask my husband. He has formed a habit of following behind me whenever we leave somewhere, whether it’s a restaurant or a friend’s house, to grab my phone, keys, and wallet that I left behind. My forgetfulness is my dad’s fault (right, Mom?), or so I claim. I tend to forget other things, too. I tend to look at what is going on around me in the world and see all the pain, suffering, death, and mourning and forget that God is in charge of it all. If forget that He is reigning still, in the midst of suffering. Forgetting my phone is one thing. Forgetting the sovereignty of God is another thing entirely....Keep Reading
