At Peace, Always Troubled spacer At Peace, Always Troubled
BY: Denis Haack
We live in a deeply troubled world. Following Christ means walking into that trouble, and that is always troubling. Always troubling, that is, except for a quiet confidence that the safest, most ultimately fulfilling, shalom-infused place to be in this troubled world is to be in Christ.

Kimya Dawson, <i>remember that i love you<i/> (2006) spacer Kimya Dawson, remember that i love you (2006)
BY: Denis Haack
There is a lovely paradox in Kimya Dawson’s music. Her songs are simple, childlike, almost childish in spots, yet they probe into the meaning of life. Her voice is clear and calm, yet her lyrics build intensely, rushing out in crowded lines as if pausing to catch our breath is something we cannot afford in the face of so much honesty.

Re-Thinking Issues: Civility and Immigration spacer Re-Thinking Issues: Civility and Immigration
BY: Denis Haack
As I write this America is in the midst of a political campaign... which means it is a time to make choices, which means we need to think about issues responsibly, which means for Christians that our politics needs to be intentionally under Christ’s Lordship, which means that we need to be sure our thinking is informed by a biblically informed Christian perspective instead of being simply swept along by political ideologies or slogans or party loyalties.

Pushing Beyond Comfort Zones: Discernment Exercise spacer Pushing Beyond Comfort Zones: Discernment Exercise
BY: Denis Haack
Last year a friend, Tim Giese, phoned with an invitation, though he worded it as a challenge. “You’re always talking about discerning culture,” he said with a good-natured snicker, “but there’s a lot of culture you don’t pay any attention to—let’s go to the mixed-martial arts cage fight at the fair grounds next week. Bet you’ve never discerned one of them!”

The Incredibles (Brad Bird, 2004) spacer The Incredibles (Brad Bird, 2004)
BY: Andrew H. Trotter, Jr.
With dialogue that is crisp, witty and thoroughly clean, action sequences that rival any in the non-animated action/adventure genre today, and characters who face real challenges that most of us face, this children’s movie is much more than that. It is what a family film is supposed to be: good for the whole family.

Loving the Rich (and Us) spacer Loving the Rich (and Us)
BY: Luke Bobo
If teachers taught the whole counsel of God, then they will cover territory that strongly encourages the rich to hold their riches lightly and to be generous.

Stranger to Me spacer Stranger to Me
BY: Margie Haack
Practicing the rhythm of hospitality, inviting the stranger home, brings many blessings, but it's a reckless, risky business and often we don't know what the outcome will be.

The Avett Brothers, <i>Emotionalism</i> (2007) spacer The Avett Brothers, Emotionalism (2007)
BY: Travis Scott
Trying to describe the music of The Avett Brothers is difficult. While they are firmly rooted in bluegrass this trio also demonstrates influences as far from bluegrass as the Violent Femmes.

Material Boy: On Artifacts, Discernment, and Elites spacer Material Boy: On Artifacts, Discernment, and Elites
BY: David John Seel, Jr.
Andy Crouch’s Culture Making is an important book written by an insightful writer. It warrants wide discussion. It is also strangely troubling.

When the Church Fails Us spacer When the Church Fails Us
BY: Denis Haack
For those of us who want a church which wrestles with the implications of Christ’s Lordship across all of life and culture, who recognize that the approaches to evangelism and apologetics developed in decades past fail to engage the heart yearnings of the postmodern generation, and who desire worship which has both deeply ancient roots and a living, thoughtful diversity in creativity which captures hearts as well as minds, it can be lonely.

spacer This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.

Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
