The Debt We Owe to Abraham Kuyper

  For information on our Faith, Life, and Work Conference, click here.   When we talk about how “everything is spiritual,” or the importance of integrating all of our Faith, Life, and Work, we owe a debt to Abraham Kuyper. He famously said, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, […]

Why Should We Love the Church?

In his wonderful poem Choruses from “The Rock,” (which I anticipate quoting from in the future), T.S. Eliot makes a case for the Church: “Why should men love the Church? Why should they love her laws? She tells them of Life and Death, and of all that they would forget. She is tender where they would be […]

What I’m Reading This Month [October]

From time to time, I thought I’d share what I’m reading and finding helpful or stimulating. Here’s what I was reading in September. If you’re reading these or anything else interesting, I’d love to know in the comments!       Rework is a manifesto of sorts. It’s about upending more traditional ways of starting and growing […]

3 Ways to Help People Pursue Kingdom Work

This is a broken world. You know that. I know that. People know that.   They want justice. They want peace. They want flourishing. They want people to have clean water and mosquito nets and new shoes and literacy and no abuse and access to education–and the list goes on. They want things to be […]

A Prayer on Vocation

Faith and work are meant to go together. Take some time to pray for your vocation, and your attitude towards your vocation! Our God who has created us, we thank you for entrusting us with important and meaningful vocations. Forgive us for belittling work, for finding work menial, and for taking our work lightly. Change […]

In Defense of Strategy

This morning I came across a post by Sam Allberry called Why ’Strategic Ministry’ Makes Me Deeply Uncomfortable. I really like Allberry’s work generally speaking; his little book “Is God Anti-Gay?” is succinctly brilliant, helpful, and pastoral. By all accounts he’s a great guy. But I was disappointed in this post. As I read Sam’s post, it seems he is uncomfortable with […]

Lay Your Deadly Doing Down

  Lay your deadly “doing” down— Down at Jesus’ feet; Stand in Him, in Him alone, Gloriously complete. I first heard this quote years ago in a Tim Keller sermon (can’t remember which one), and found the message to be liberating. So I was curious to know more of the lyrics and a bit more about the hymn. […]

Jesus, the Savior

I wrapped up our 3-part mini-series on ICHTHUS this past Sunday by looking at Jesus as our Savior and Atoning Sacrifice. It’s a bit long but, hey, substitutionary atonement is deep waters!   You can listen to part 1 on Jesus the Christ here and part 2 on Jesus, God’s Son here.

What I’m Reading

From time to time, I thought I’d share what I’m reading and finding helpful or stimulating. If you’re reading these or anything else interesting, I’d love to know in the comments! As you might expect from Keller, a marvel of genius-by-compression on many issues of preaching. As one reviewer said, more of a manifesto than manual. […]
