1. Reject Apathy, #2
The second issue of Reject Apathy is now out and available for online viewing for free. Lots of good stuff in it, intended especially, I think, for twenty-somethings interested in doing good (tag line: “Sustainable Change. Sacrificial Living. Spiritual Formation”). I blogged about the debut issue back in July.
2. Faith and science
My friend and former pastor/coworker Brian Moore has a series going on his blog about faith, science, and often uncomfortable relationship between the two that seems to be driving a lot of young people away from the church. Brian’s a thoughtful guy, and his series is worth your time. Parts one and two have been posted so far.
3. Top culture-shaping moments of 2011
The folks at Q Ideas have compiled an inspiring list of the most memorable culture-shaping moments of the past year. Despite the many caricatures that evangelical Christians have in our culture (many of which are not entirely undeserved, in my estimation), it’s cool to see how in every sphere of culture there are evangelicals seeking the common good. Let’s support them, cheer them on, and join in the fun, what do you say?
4. Five observations about globalized society and Christianity
With the next Urbana conference just a year away, missions consultant and member of the Urbana leadership team Paul Borthwick shares five insights into our changing world and what it means for Christians.
5. Who put the “social” in social justice?
Scot McKnight shares a Sojourners post from Tim King from earlier in the month (originally here), and offers perspective on the debate over the redundancy or necessity of lumping the words “social” and “justice” together.
Repaso is intended as a thought-provoking compilation of news and commentary from the past week related to the intersections of faith, development, justice and peace. As always, I welcome your thoughts on any of the links and ideas in this roundup!
