We mourn for the more than a thousand victims of the Roman Catholic priests and bishops of Pennsylvania. We are sorry to hear of Aretha Franklin‘s passing — she’s the Queen of Soul: NEW YORK (AP) — The clarity and the command. The daring and the discipline. The thrill of her voice and the truth […] Read more of this blog post »

“‎Those who aren't following Jesus aren't his followers. It's that simple. Followers follow, and those who don't follow aren't followers. To follow Jesus means to follow Jesus into a society where justice rules, where love shapes everything. To follow Jesus means to take up his dream and work for it.”
Scot McKnight, One.Life: Jesus Calls, We Follow

“Why do so many today want to wander off to South Africa or Kenya or India or Russia or Honduras or Costa Rica or Peru to help with justice issues but not spend the same effort in their own neighborhood or community or state? Why do young suburbanites, say in Chicago, want to go to Kentucky or Tennessee to help people but not want to spend that same time to go to the inner city in their own area to help with justice issues? I asked this question to a mature student in my office one day, and he thought he had a partial explanation: 'Because my generation is searching for experiences, and the more exotic and extreme the better. Going down the street to help at a food shelter is good and it is just and some of us are doing that, but it's not an experience. We want experiences.”
Scot McKnight

“God did not give the Bible so we could master him or it; God gave the Bible so we could live it, so we could be mastered by it. The moment we think we’ve mastered it, we have failed to be readers of the Bible.”
Scot McKnight, The Blue Parakeet: Rethinking How You Read the Bible
