New Saint Andrews College has produced a very fine booklet called, 33 Theses on Culture Shaping, in which you will find the following, “If mere Christendom were a town, then the church is the cathedral at the center of town, and its ministry is that of grace and peace. The civil authorities over the town … Continue reading Cultural Reformation: Where Does It Begin?
So last week God did us yet another kindness. His goodness overflows, this you know. We seem hellbent on running over the cliff, debased mind and all. But God keeps yanking on the rope.
