Ashley Gorman penned this eye-opening, heart-wrenching article about foster care at The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. Here’s an excerpt:
In that moment, God showed me what dignifying a person looks like. And he also showed me that adoption isn’t the only beautiful picture of the gospel. Fighting to see a family restored is, too.
Speaking of The Ethics and Religious Commission, Brittany Salmon also wrote this important article on parenting and technology inspired by the recent “Momo challenge.” She writes,
We might not be able to shield our kids from every potential harm, but we can light their paths with wisdom for when they come across darkness online.
Logan Smith explores the intersection of faith and work in this piece at The Institute for Faith, Work and Economics. Here’s an excerpt:
Every kind of labor still accomplishes the Creator’s goals and provides purpose to what is otherwise just another day in the office or on the construction site.
Chad Austin recaps a talk from John Stonestreet in this article for the North Carolina Baptist Convention:
Cultural engagement is part of discipleship….We’ve got to address the culture in which we live, and we’ve got to do it with clarity and we’ve got to do it with understanding.
Have you ever thought of art as a form of outreach? Marie Burrus explains how it can be in this article at UBA Houston. She writes,
Meaningful Christian art must start from the Godward heart and communicate gospel truth in the real world. In short, it’s all about the message, not the medium.
