It was a bitter-sweet day. Here is a picture of the elders prior to Greg pulling out of the parking lot for the last time. We will miss Greg, Lorrie, and the girls. (Tad and Harvard Avenue, you are getting one special family! Take care of them.)

RE: Salt and Light

The original intent of our blog was to provide space to dialogue about questions that come during lunch concerning the message of the week. The question of the week goes something like this:

As salt, what exactly are we preserving? In other words, do we really want to delay societal decay/degeneration?

Let’s see where our discussion goes (I’ll let the person who asked the question elaborate or clarify his thoughts if necessary).

This post has two parts.

First, I often think A.W. Tozer is still alive and writing about the contemporary (existing or occurring at or dating from the same period of time as something or somebody else) church. For example. . .

We come into the presence of God with tainted souls. We come with our own concept of morality, having learned it from books, from the newspaper and from school. We come to God dirty – our whitest white is dirty, our churches are dirty and our thoughts are dirty – and do nothing about it. If we came to God dirty, but trembling and shocked and awestruck in His presence, if we knelt at His feet and cried with Isaiah, “I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips”, then I could understand. But we skip into His presence. We’re dirty, but we have a book called Seven Steps to Salvation that gives us seven verses to get us out of our problems. And each year we have more Christians, more people going to church, more church buildings, more money – and less spirituality and less holiness. We’re forgetting Hebrews 12:14 that says, “Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord.” – Hebrews 12:14


Second, one of my most favorite things to do while ironing on Sunday night is to listen to the White Horse Inn. If you’ve never listened, Part 1 and Part 2 of “The Gospel According to Barnes and Noble” will hook you.

McLaren, Warren, Guinness, and George have signed it. Dobson and Land have not. I haven’t read it in its entirety because I’m heading out of town. I’d be interested in your take on this document and if you have any idea how such a wide variety of people could sign it.
