First, please read Nathan Finn's thoughts on the movie "Selma". "If we appeal piously to the gospel without committing ourselves to the hard work of authentic cross-cultural friendships and open dialogs, policy debates, social justice ministries, intentional outreach, and repentance, prayer and service to those in need, then our gospel is a slogan that deflects rather than a truth that transforms. There is no gospel when there is no change. “Selma” reminds me of how far we’ve come, and how far we still need to go—how far I still need to go."
This was an interesting post from NPR about Iraqi Monks who are working little by little to preserve Iraq's Christian history.
In this post, SEBTS Ethics professor Mark Liederbach explores the question: "Using your political imagination, what would an ideal polity look like from a Christian perspective?"
I was at the blog of my friend Spence Spencer yesterday looking for a book review he had done recently that I wanted to re-read, and I came across this post he had written this past November on writing papers in Seminary. I wanted to share it here again for my fellow students. Read it now, and think about it as you are planning your papers for this semester. And, you should be planning your papers now. Make some appointments at the Writing Center now. Spence has a few roles here at SEBTS, and one of those is that of grader of papers, so give his thoughts some serious consideration!
