I’m wondering what your thoughts are on Obama’s acceptance speech? What did you like and what did you not like? As always on the Jesus Creed, civil remarks (and they can be appropriately critical) will be accepted.

Our Missional God 13

If the exodus is the primal act of redemption, the Jubilee of Leviticus 25 is the primal act of restoration. So Chris Wright in The Mission of God. One text that has played a big role in anabaptist thinking, and […]
