Love Expressed

I heard these words in a video presentation I watched yesterday. They came from Michael Lloyd of St Paul’s Theological Centre. They gripped my heart deeply.

‘Love in the presence of pain takes the form of compassion, love in the presence of injustice takes the form of anger, love in the presence of love takes the form of delight.’

God’s Autograph

A few week’s ago, I let you know that Peter Enns has been posting an in depth series over at the BioLogos blog in which he interacts in quite some detail with the Chicago Statement of Biblical Inerrancy. Since then, he has posted a few more articles in the series, and I can only imagine such will continue into the future.

I really appreciate what Enns is doing, even applaud it in some sense. Although he is mainly engaging in such to help the whole discussion of how Christians are to understand and engage with the relationship between science and faith (especially our faith as expressed in Scripture), I think what he is doing has wider ramifications.

Now, if one were to read his series, they might wonder why I would appreciate such, much less applaud it. It seems so ‘liberal’, in that Enns is questioning some of the articles found in the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy. For many evangelicals, the Bible is inerrant, right? – Why challenge such? This is what we believe. Continue reading

A Leap of Truth – Film Trailer

Below is a short trailer about a new documentary film entitled A Leap of Faith.

This film is particularly the work of Ryan Pettey of Satellite Pictures and was produced in cooperation with the BioLogos group. In a recent article at BioLogos, Pettey stated:

With A Leap of Truth, we wanted to put something proactive on the table that could help motivate an elevated conversation about the “war” between science and faith. It was our goal to help Christians see (and accept) the complexity of the issues raised by modern science, as well as help them to courageously engage with the theological conversations happening within the sphere of Christian culture today. We wanted the film to address the topic hermeneutically, historically, and socially in order to gain a better perspective on the issues, and, hopefully, address some of the fears (justified or otherwise) concerning what science is telling us about our physical origins.

You might know that the whole discussion surrounding faith and science, particularly whether evolution can find a place in historic Christianity, has been of some interest to me. So check out the trailer below. For me, it was quite stirring.
