There’s a little tick that evangelicals have developed when wanting to sound edgy at conferences. They will announce in hushed tones “Aslan is on the move.” It’s meant to be code for saying that they can see positive signs in the life if the church. I must admit I hate the expression.

Faith, hope and children (What Kevin DeYoung could have said)

Here’s an extra article this afternoon instead of sharing afternoon tea. The Kevin DeYoung article about having lots of children has certainly stirred emotions. Some people have taken this to mean that there are obstacles to pastors talking about discipleship issues that affect women. I don’t think so. I don’t think that the problem wasContinue reading “Faith, hope and children (What Kevin DeYoung could have said)”

Harvest Time (Revelation 14)
