Chris Elrod had a couple of powerful things to ponder:
“The consequences of sin knows no boundaries. It is not limited by time…by generation…or by a desire to forgive and forget. Integrity and trust are hard things to initially develop…devastating to lose…and almost impossible to regain once forfeited.” Sometimes I fear we treat sin and their impact too lightly.
somehow the links listed above on John Piper’s thots l and Esther Meeks seem to go together this morning… having been a mildly puzzled, but interested observer on the outside of the Charismatic wave that swept thru the U.S. in the second half of the 20th Century (it was a heads up from God to a lukewarm Church IMV), i am not processing the phenomena of many who rode that wave now looking for more substance and going to the formal, liturgical services to find it… no conclusions yet and don’t know that i have enough years or brains left to reach conclusions, but it’s all interesting and God is still working grace among usl…
again in your debt, Brian for good food for thot
threw in an extra “I” and that “not” processing should have been “now” FWIW
Em, it will be a niche kind of thing. Most charismatics will reject liturgy and most Reformed want little to do with the charismata. I welcome correction on this…
Amen to that Esther.
Mark…correction noted and made.
Brian? did you mean my 2nd post correcting my careless typing? i loved the way Piper’s and Meeks’ seemed to dovetail this morning – at least they did for me…
also where was the ‘b’ that should have been a ‘p’? curiosity death occurring here 😆
I said nothing about your grammar, Em…
Mark Lamprecht’s name was misspelled.
Brian, “I welcome correction on this…” ? ok, i think i’ve got it – you were referencing your preceding sentence – i don’t think straight after 10 AM or before 6 AM, for that matter – really limited in my window of comprehension 😆 😦
thank you, also for answering my “where’s Waldo” question
Brain, the linkathon looks like another good one and I’m looking forward to digging into it. It has been a busy day and I’m just now settling in for the night, tomorrow looks like more of the same.
