Weekly Roundup: March 14, 2019 (Insecurity; God's Word; Letters to a Weary World)
At Broad Oak Piety this Week:
This is an excellent 1-hour panel discussion by some trusted theologians and pastors on the current trends of the social justice movement. If you find yourself having lots of discussions about issues such as racism, homosexuality, abortion, etc. check this panel out. If you don't, you should familiarize yourself with the current conversation taking place inside evangelicalism.
Excellent short article by a former professor of mine on the ugly sin of insecurity. This article gives good practical handles on how to repent of insecurity by showing it's sinful reality.
For the next few months I will be recommending sermons by a friend of mine who pastors Grace Baptist Chapel here in Hampton, VA. Because I am blogging through the 1689 LBCF, I thought I'd give you sermons from a trusted pastor who has preached through the confession carefully.
This is a book I just finished reading. First let me say Rebecca is a uniquely gifted writer. I had never heard of her before this book, but I will read everything she writes from here on out. This book, divided into individual letters, aims to show beauty in brokenness while masterfully grappling with the reality and ugliness of suffering and sin. While there are some theological statements in the book I would like to hear teased out more, overall Reynolds has written a careful, encouraging book on persevering in the faith in the midst of a world deeply impacted by Adam's sin.
