Understanding Scripture Correctly (I) spacer Understanding Scripture Correctly (I)
BY: Denis Haack

Engaging the Arts: Are You A Patron?: Discernment Exercise spacer Engaging the Arts: Are You A Patron?: Discernment Exercise
BY: Denis Haack
The arts, contrary to liberal ideology, cannot solve the deepest problems of the human race, nor, contrary to conservative ideology, are the arts luxuries unnecessary to existence. Made in the image of the Creator, human beings are inescapably creative.

Valkyrie (Bryan Singer, 2008) spacer Valkyrie (Bryan Singer, 2008)

“A Few Like You”: Will the Church be the Church for Homosexual Christians? spacer “A Few Like You”: Will the Church be the Church for Homosexual Christians?
BY: Wesley Hill
"I am drawn to the haunting confessions of W.H. Auden’s because I, too, am a homosexual Christian. Though I have never been in a gay relationship as Auden was, I have also never experienced the 'healing' that some formerly gay Christians profess to have received. But I remain a Christian, a follower of Jesus."

Sin that Afflicts the Righteous spacer Sin that Afflicts the Righteous
BY: Eugene H. Peterson
... But there is one form of sin that flourishes in religious communities in ways hardly possible outside of them—it begins in places of worship. Religious communities provide the conditions for this spiritual disorder, this sin, far in excess to what is provided in the secularized world.

spacer This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.

Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
