In today’s #FaithandCulture Reading, we cull a brief list of some of our favorite articles of the week. Today, we highlight articles from Laura Thigpen, Tony Wolfe, Chelsea Patterson Sobolik and Meryll Herr.
Laura Thigpen offers a word of hope for hopeless people in this article at GC Discipleship. She writes,
If I am going to be imprisoned by something or someone, let me be imprisoned by hope in the only God who can save!
We always seem to be offended about something. Tony Wolfe helps us correct our need to vent in this article at UBA Houston. He writes,
Being born again gives Christians the countercultural ability to evaluate every thought and every word toward cultivation instead of ventilation.
Chelsea Patterson Sobolik writes about the intense persecution Christian women face around the world. Here’s an excerpt from her article at The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission:
Christians should help reimagine a world where it would be unthinkable that any woman is persecuted because of her sex. We should help raise awareness on this issue and speak on behalf of our sisters around the world.
Meryl Herr reflects upon her seasons of waiting and job hunting in this article at Made to Flourish. She writes,
Ten years ago, I was the woman who neurotically hummed “Great is Thy Faithfulness” wherever she went. My husband and I had completed a two-year pastoral residency in the middle of the Recession, and we struggled to find full-time work in our fields. I worked retail while my husband worked odd jobs. With each passing day, my hope dwindled and I struggled to hold onto God’s faithfulness in that season of waiting.
