God is shaking the foundations. So says Dr. Tom Long in a recent online panel sponsored by “Journal for Preachers” of Columbia Seminary. He cautions that we’ll need the perspective of history to say for sure. But it does seem like something is happening.
In a world of truthiness and the deep fake, we can still connect with the real and the true. Substance. Change your name?! You got to kill the person you were born to be in order to become the person you want to be. (Wilson to Elton, in “Rocketman”) In baptism we kill the lies that deceive us and rise to the truth with Christ in newness of life. One way or another, we need a sturdy faith of substance.
A Faith of Substance, at the Reedville Church this Sunday, June 21, 9:30 am. Contact us for Zoom invitation.
