If the previous posts hold true: namely that OWS is indeed a global phenomena affecting hundreds of thousands of people that is an incredibly diversified in regard to how to make things better; what is the appropriate response for the church. Or, as Francis Schaeffer so aptly questioned “How...
I have written several posts in defense of social media (for example, here, here, and here). My basic argument has been that social media is a series of platforms that are not inherently harmful. I have expressed concern over the way that many people use social media—replacing true friendship with...
A couple weeks before Thanksgiving, Sufjan Stevens released the latest installment in his Christmas music dynasty. Many, many, many musicians create Christmas music. But no one does it like Sufjan.
