Yesterday, Southeastern held its final chapel of the semester. In light of the deaths Michael Brown and Eric Garner, and subsequent protests regarding the grand jury decisions in their respective cases, Danny Akin led the community in a time of worship and prayer. The specific focus was on our churches’ roles in racial reconciliation in this country. We need it. Join us in praying for it. We pray the video here will aid those prayers.
1) Derwin Gray, Pastor of Transformation Church, recently wrote about Ferguson, the Cross, and reconciliation. Well worth the read.
2) In light of the NY grand jury decision not to indict an officer who killed an unarmed Eric Garner, Russell Moore talked about the case for justice at stake and the church’s role.
3) Is the young, restless, and reformed “movement” a failed one? This week, D. A. Carson wrote about “The Underbelly of Revival: Five Reflections on Failure Among the Young, Restless, and Reformed.” Wise and balanced analysis here.
4) Matt Capps, Teaching Pastor at The Fellowship Church in Mt. Juliet and Nashville, TN, writes about the missional church at Pastors Today. Is your church missional?
