What I have been Learning

After awhile, and much more often than I do, a person needs to sit down and think about what they have been learning in life. What have the books, the conversations, the teachings, the lyrics, the situations, been telling you? I sat down today at the local Panera, exhausted with filling my mind with information, and came up with a list of several subjects that have been showing up over and over again.

1. The church as a body of subversive peoples. Tim Keel made a great point of this in a sermon that he preached a while back when Jacob's Well was doing a series on Empire. Jesus offered a higher, better, alternative to the stories of his day.

2. Shift from a modern culture to a post modern culture.

3. The importance of justice in the Scriptures and in the lives of Christians

Just a quick overview for posterity.
