In today’s #FaithandCulture Reading, we cull a brief list of some of our favorite articles of the week. Today, we highlight articles from Trisha Taylor, Jenn Hesse, Julie Owen, Marylou Springer and Kevin S. Hall.
Over at UBA Houston, Trisha Taylor confesses her own burnout and addiction to busyness, and she encourages us to evaluate our own lives. She writes,
Overextended, resentful, and exhausted Christians are at best useless and at worst dangerous to the kingdom of God.
Jenn Hesse makes the case for adoption and urges mothers to choose life in this article at The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. She writes,
We need to share the good news that adoption can help redeem the difficulties of unplanned pregnancy and positively impact all involved in the adoption triad.
Each year, students from Southeastern Seminary and Southwestern Seminary journey together to the Oxford Study Tour. A few weeks ago, Rebecca Hankins shared on Intersect how the trip changed her. In this article, Julie Owens from Southwestern Seminary writes about the trip as well. Here’s an excerpt of her article:
‘This trip brings what we learn in the classroom to life in so many ways,’ says Hamby. ‘Not only does the history come to life, but so will friendships that you never saw coming.’
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:
- Passing the Baton: The Missional Legacy of Dr. George Braswell
Marylou Springer: “Dr. Braswell gifted us with a tangible reminder of the work God accomplishes when we entrust our lives and futures to Him.”
- Things Every Missionary Needs
Kevin S. Hall: “Pray for your missionary by name. Pray for their ministry. Pray for the people with whom they have contact. Pray for their safety, sanity, and spirituality. Pray. When they do give specific areas for prayer, remember to pray.”
