Some of you already know about Thinking through Christianity, the new project I’ve been invited to be a part of. You know about it because I’ve been blowing up your social media feeds the last few days. What can I say? I’m excited.
Let me tell you what you can expect
should you choose to when you check it out:
Our goal as the site’s writers is to be an online community of thinking believers who appreciate art, engage culture, and display God’s love to society. I’m thrilled to be working alongside such a smart, talented, and fun! group of people, most of whom are not only scholars but gifted teachers and writers as well, which means you don’t have to worry about not being able to understand what on Earth we’re talking about. You can expect the same sort of casual tone and everyday language at TTC as you (hopefully) find here at Speak What We Feel where, of course, I will still be blogging on a regular basis: answering emails, writing poetry, posting scripts from biblestudy talks I give, and sharing my general musings.
My first post for Thinking through was published on Tuesday this week: some of Britain’s leaders and journalists are framing the recent riots in a moral framework; I found that interesting (and good) with intriguing implications regarding both the Christian and naturalistic/atheistic worldview. So I wrote about it. Current events are some of what you can expect to see at TTC; you can also expect to see book, music, and movie reviews; civil discussion on controversial topics and issues; thoughtful conversation about various church doctrines, practices, histories and traditions (like today’s post from Thomas Ladd); and you can expect to be surprised too. As I said above, we aim to engage our world through a biblical understanding and invite others to do so too—the world is a rather large place and Christ is Lord of all of it; so you never know what we might decide to write about.
What you won’t find (at least on our part) is bickering and inflammatory language; you won’t find us telling you who or what Jesus would vote for; nor will you find dogmatism on Christian doctrine or beliefs which are non-essential or praxes (practices/habits) which are preferential. We hope you will find this refreshing.
us me some love and visit Thinking through Christianity. Poke around a bit; if you like what you see, find a way to join the conversation: like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter; add us to your Google Reader; or subscribe via RSS or email. There are lots of ways to be sure you don’t miss out!
