Reflections on Cooperation and Religious Divisions

Attendance at a recent Missions Resource Network benefit dinner, sparked thoughts of the religious divisions and lack of coorperation that long characterised congregtions of the churches of Christ.  I was born and raised in the 40's, 50's, and 60's--more than 50 years distance from our present culture.  During those times,  many good practices were prevalent, chief among them a study and knowledge of scripture.  Alas, knowledge does not in itself mean understanding and practice.Congregational…See More

In this essay, the dangers that can befall all groups are highlighted. http://essaysonchristianity.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-siren-allure-of-political-activism.htmlSee More

Can the Churches of Christ Have Unity in Diversity?

"Diversity" is a word charged with meaning in our world.  It usually provokes strong emotions from both proponents and antagonists.  In the secular world arguments for diversity rest upon two postulates: 1) Racial discrimination in the past necessitates positive inclusion of minority groups in decisions in order to "make up" for past discrimination in organizations 2)  "Studies show how diversity improves academic performance, reduces prejudice, lowers stress and psychological barriers, and has…See More

What Is Spiritual Discipline?

Posted on April 10, 2013 at 12:57pm 0 Comments

This essay is prompted by a paper entitled "Moving from Solitude to Ministry," by Henri Nouwen. (1) In this paper he states:

 

"But in the spiritual life, the word discipline means "the effort to create space in which God can act."  Discipline means to prevent everything in your life from being filled up. Discipline means that somewhere you're not occupied, and certainly not preoccupied.  In the spiritual life discipline means to create that space in which something important…

Does Our Individualism Prevent Submitting to the Kingship of Christ?

Posted on March 27, 2013 at 6:26pm 0 Comments

In the United States "individualism" has historically been one of the foundations of society. " John Locke (1632–1704) is among the most influential political philosophes of the modern period. In the Two Treatises of Government, he defended the claim that men are by nature free and equal against claims that God had made all people naturally subject to a monarch. He argued that people have rights, such as the right to life, liberty, and property, that have a foundation independent of…

Thanks for the comment, Lynn.

We practice the Lord's Supper in the context of a meal, much like I suspect the early Christians did. Our experience is also much more communal and conversational as opposed to introspective and meditative.

John Mark Hick's book Come to the Table has been pretty influential in my understanding and practice of the Supper.
