And you must serve as the Leader of those leaders.   You must create an environment where your team is thinking for themselves, where you are empowering them to make decisions, where you are delegating authority.   Make clear that the expectation is for them to be owners of the experience you are creating together.   If you create an atmosphere where…

The Problem with Manufactured Femininity – Christian Article

The Feminine Ideal Manufactured femininity is kind of what I think of as a list of feminine ideals. It’s almost like a platonic ideal of the perfect woman. We make a list of what we think that might look like—which doesn’t sound altogether wrong because there are virtues that we absolutely want to mimic and adhere to as women. But, the problem with the list of feminine ideals that many of us sort of tuck away in our pocket and…

If the Quest for the Historical Jesus Failed… What Then? – The Bart Ehrman Blog – Christian Article

In response to a question about the Messianic Secret in Mark, I have now shown how scholars (most signficiantly William Wrede) came to realize that not even the Gospel of Mark was a straightforward historical account of what actually happened in the life of Jesus. Some five years ago on the blog I talked about what happened next, in the scholarship on the New Testament.  It’s a crucial element of the history of biblical scholarship.  Here is what I said.…

Tangled Cords | Devotional by Marilyn Ehle – Christian Article

”Teach me your way, LORD; lead me in a straight path..”Psalm 27:11 In a small utility room in our home hangs a loosely slatted divider to partition the space. Cords at the side are used to roll up the divider when we want to get at the broom, mop or other pieces of cleaning equipment. It is a functional arrangement that usually works quite well. But those cords cause frustration. If not carefully held separate while being pulled, they quickly…

God Is Closer to You Than Your Own Thoughts – Christian Article

By John Frame When people philosophize about God, images of his distance often predominate. God is, we say, far from us, in a different realm from the earth in which we live. There is some truth in this. The Bible often says that God reigns “on high” (Job 16:19; Ps 18:16). That is a synonym for heaven, a place above and beyond us. When Jesus ascended to heaven, he rose into the air until he was out of sight (Acts…

Can the Lord’s Supper be an Evangelistic Event? – Christian Article

I attended an Anglican ordination service in Melbourne just over a week ago, communion was served (as we Anglicans do), and I noticed a Middle Eastern lady wearing a headscarf, quite possibly Muslim, returning from receiving the elements and quietly weeping. Now, I don’t know who she was or what was happening in her heart, but I got the impression this was a very important moment for her, perhaps even a point of conversion. In any case, such experiences raise,…

Searching for the Rich T – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); I was raised on Rich Tea biscuits. That is not exactly true but certainly some of my favourite childhood memories are of eating Rich Tea biscuits at my grandmother’s house and the secret she shared with me that they tasted even better when dunked in tea. It is a memory I treasure and one that still prompts me to search for the Rich Tea biscuits when shopping. Treasure comes in many forms – or what…

6 Leadership Principles I Learned From My Trailblazing Father – Christian Article

I followed my father into a long law enforcement career. It’s not unusual to see kids follow their fathers into this profession; our agency has many multi-generational police families (although we are the only one with three generations of officers bearing the same name). I learned a lot about leadership from my dad, although it wasn’t in a police setting. I came out of the Academy the same month my father retired from the department, so we never had the…

So far at the Pope’s anti-abuse summit, survivors are stealing the show… – Christian Article

As Pope Francis’s high-stakes summit on clerical sexual abuse opens today, perhaps the biggest question pundits and handicappers will be asking is how well the agenda of victims and survivors will fare in the bishops’ deliberations. The day prior to the opening of the summit, a group of survivors stole the show before the curtain even went up… This is Only a Snippet of a Christian Article written by null@newadvent.org (John Allen) Read Full Article

How to Love Opioid Addicts in Your Community—and Church – Christian Article

It was 2 a.m. when I received the call. A young man in our church had gotten high on heroin, cut his wrist, and posted on Facebook that he was ready to die.

I rushed out of bed and spent the night driving the streets of our little town, alongside law enforcement, looking for him. Miraculously, he didn’t die. But the journey of…

How to Love the Sinner & Hate the Sin – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); It’s a catchy phrase. Everyone uses it whenever there is a discussion about Christians interacting with people that live counter to Scripture (or their interpretation of Scripture). “Love the sinner, hate the sin.” But how do we do that? It’s easier said than done. It can be difficult to see the distinction between sinner and sin. Thankfully, C.S. Lewis has some wise words to help get us see the line between. “I remember Christian…

Cultural Observations on the Sexual Revolution, Mormonism, Racialism, and Calls – Christian Article

Wow, what a mix!  Lots of material at the start on true biblical justice, avoiding mobs, how intersectionality eats its own (Martina Navratilova), and the use of the “crisis” to get things done now, even if what you are really doing is just pushing forward your ultimate agenda. Then we took calls on various topics, and then at the end of the program I briefly read through the tweet by Dr. Anthony Bradley calling brothers in Christ “Oreos,” and what…

The Beggar’s Plight | Thoughts about God by Sue Braid – Christian Article

I was two years old when I first saw beggars sitting on the side of the road. They were the poorest of the poor in the country where I grew up. Their contorted bodies, sometimes sightless eyes, flat expressions, and plaintive voices unnerved me. At two I, of course, had no idea that — God never looks at the poor with revulsion, but with compassion. Jesus left heaven with its limitless and eternal wealth on every level and “he became…

A Spiritual Fitbit – Dr. James Emery White, Christianity.com Blogs – Christian Article

I recently received my annual “year in review” from Fitbit, the watch/tracker I wear on my wrist. I find it helpful in keeping me on my pre-determined goal of at least 10,000 steps a day, and immensely satisfying when I enter “challenges” with my competitive children. I was informed that in 2018, I walked 4,117,849 steps. That’s an average of more than 11,000 steps a day, which, Fitbit told me, is like 524 hours showing off my dance moves. Since…

I have a wife and three young kids, a congregation full of people I love, friends and…

Catholics: The Hard Slog of Sanctity Starts Here – Christian Article

Our righteous anger is not enough; by our actions we must rebuild a Church being shaken apart. “I am so done.” “I just can’t anymore.” Some variation of these two phrases are littered throughout the email and private messages I’m getting from fellow Catholics who have been “hanging in and hanging on” since last summer’s revelations about both the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report and the ongoing saga of former Cardinal, former Archbishop, former priest Theodore McCarrick. Faithful Catholics who have…
