In today’s #FaithandCulture Reading, we cull a brief list of some of our favorite articles of the week. Today, we highlight resources from Bruce Ashford, John Piper, Lauren Pratt and Steve Addison.
In case you missed it, Lauren Pratt reported yesterday on the news that professor and author Karen Swallow Prior will join the faculty of Southeastern Seminary and The College at Southeastern. She writes,
Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) is excited to announce that Karen Swallow Prior will be joining the faculty as full-time research professor of English and Christianity & Culture beginning in the fall semester of 2020. She will be the first research professor in the history of The College at Southeastern.
Bruce Ashford writes at Fox News about Beto O’Rourke’s recent comments on religious liberty. Here’s a preview:
When religious freedom is threatened, every other freedom is threatened as well. If religious liberty falls, so will freedom of speech, press and associations.
We all strain to be productive, but sometimes life gets in the way. Might God have a purpose for this unproductivity? John Piper writes,
[Y]ou’re not being measured by God by how much you get done. You’re being measured by whether you trust the goodness and the wisdom and the sovereignty of God to work this new mess of inefficiency for his glory and the good of everyone involved.
From our Sister Blogs
Intersect serves as the blog of the Center for Faith and Culture (CFC) at Southeastern Seminary (SEBTS). Take a few minutes to look at recent posts from our sister Centers:
- Fall Break in Portland: Learning About the Long Haul
Lauren Pratt: “Don’t sideline yourself during seminary. Get in the game and go to the lost. Our God commands us, and our gospel compels us.”
- Why Movements Rise and Fall
Steve Addison: “Movements rise or fall to the degree which they surrender to the Word of God.”
