Friday Roundup: Middle Schoolers, Millennials and Discernment

Chris —  August 2, 2013
  • I’m putting the finishing touches on four talks I’m doing at Middle School camp next week. The theme is “My Tribe”, we are discussing what it means to be the family of God. I’ll try to have the audio up soon.
  • It’s been kind of a rough week with my job search hitting some discouraging snags. If you are the praying type, I’d appreciate your petitions.
  • Tomorrow, I’ll be celebrating the marriage of my good friend Daniel and his lovely wife Glynis. Daniel, despite a good ol’ Texas accent, is all heart. He has taught me the value of checking in with people during hard times. I’m grateful for years of close friendship.
  • Many thanks to Rachel Held Evans and others who shared my post 7 Lessons From a Church of Millenials earlier this week. It is possibly the most popular post I’ve written in 10 years of blogging.
  • In which white guys try to diagnose why the missional conversation is only white guys.
  • A lot of my writing these days is for my “side project“. More to come as things develop.
  • In a recent podcast, Greg Boyd mentions the difference between judgment and discernment. I can’t think of a better way to describe how the church should be approaching the current social issues.
