He is Lord?

Read this recently:
It is thought provoking to note that while we blithely sing “He is Lord”. The notion of Jesus as Lord (rather than Jesus is Messiah) was initially a controversial one, borrowed from Pagan religious language.

Who says contextualization is improper for Christians?

Pray that statistics do indeed lie

Can you believe this:
By 2050 there will be just 3,600 churchgoing Methodists left in Britain, Christian Research predicts. Anglicans will be down to 87,800, Catholics to 101,700, Presbyterians to 4,400, Baptists to 123,000 and independents to 168,000.

Actually, those statistics are for England. But can the U.S. be far behind?

Dream job?

There aren't too many jobs which grab my attention, but I have to admit a little envy for the guys who do this. (Scroll down the page for more pics.)

Meeting of the minds

Stephen Colbert interviewed N.T. Wright. I only wish the segment had been twice as long!

Insightful words

Lisa Samson has penned a penetrating and powerful poem called "When a Eucharist of Humility Is Rejected."

Next stop...that big ball of fire

When I first read this fascinating NASA piece, I thought it was wishful thinking. Then I decided that I'd rather not be counted with disbelievers, since many thought (think?) travelling to the moon was impossible.
