Blog reading:

Three discussions going on online this week I enjoyed following:

  •  The Presbyterian Committee on Congregational Song voted to exclude from its new hymnal the much-loved song “In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend because the songwriters would not agree to change the line “Till on that cross as Jesus died/the wrath of God was satisfied” to “…as Jesus died/the love of God was magnified.” Timothy George reflected on the issue–No Squishy Love.
  • Are Millennials leaving the church? Or, better asked, are they leaving the church at a higher rate than previous generations did in their early twenties? Lore Ferguson wrote about it in response to an article by Rachel Held Evans  and has a nice round-up of posts on the topic. I love how so many people are agreeing on some points and respectfully disagreeing on others.

Bible reading:

“I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4

Book reading: 

I had to take The Ragamuffin Gospel back to the library before I was finished, but that’s really ok because it’s a book I want to buy and be able to underline in. So, I focused on A Circle of Quiet by L’Engle. I like it somewhat until I read a line like, “our mythical forebears, Adam and Eve.” I’m pressing through and trying to sift out parts of value, but I may quit early and start on the next book on my contemplative list.
