Three notable articles I read this week:

Trevin WaxChristians who feel marginalized should ‘go local’. “We’re in the midst of a seismic shift in terms of culture and worldview right now in the United States of America, and orthodox Christians who seek to order their lives according to Scripture will likely lose access to institutions of mainstream influence. Such is already the case in most secular universities and in the mainstream media. More marginalization is sure to follow. But here’s a question we should raise: is life at the margins as bad as we think?”

Her.meneuticsMcDonald’s may be the most welcoming spot in your neighborhood. “Maybe those of us who only use the drive-thru have overlooked the importance of McDonald’s as a place, rather than just a food source. Or maybe we’ve observed a homeless person tucked in a booth with a cup of coffee without considering what makes this particular restaurant comfortable for them.”

Kevin DeYoungThe sermon that helped push the colonies toward independence. “Virtually every key Revolutionary era leader took for granted the need for Bible-infused virtue if the Republic would survive. And many of these leaders were sincere, orthodox, evangelical Christians. Like John Witherspoon.”
