Methodist Cross

Of all the crosses I see on churches, I like the Methodist cross the best: a cross, an empty cross, with the sign of the Spirit surrounding it. Can it get more complete? You computer folk could do better than I, but here is a link to one. [Read more...]

I promise not to blog

I promise not to blog (much) about the gospel in the immediate future, but it is a topic so central to what we do (and believe) that it deserved some attention. On top of its importance, I’m trying to give Embracing Grace a bit of a context. The gospel is easy to distort and I [Read More...]

What is the gospel? Where do we end?

I have also been impressed of late with the thought that the final state of humans shapes what the gospel is all about.

What is the gospel? Where do we start?

I have been impressed of late with this thought: how people define the gospel is determined by where they start or, even more interesting, where they end up. Put slightly differently, what is the problem being resolved by the gospel? It is common to begin, rather abruptly, with the Fall and to see humans as [Read More...]
