Usually you post the first few lines of an article to peak the reader's interest, then direct them to the entire article for further reading. However, this time, allow me to post the LAST paragraph of this article by Tim Keller.
In this paragraph, Keller sums up his thoughts on how the reformed evangelical chuch already has some of the right resources to reach what he calls the "post-everything" culture, but also challenges us that we may not be engaging this culture correctly. He concludes his article by saying:

I see people who are desperately trying to reach the post-everythings who in their desperation are trying to throw out essential elements such as the substitutionary atonement, forensic justification, imputed righteousness, the Sovereignty of God, or the inerrancy of Scripture. Many of them are probably over-adapting to the post-everything situation. But while they do not have our theological resources, often we do not have their level of engagement with the people of the emerging society. To correct this, let us confess that we really have failure across all our parties to reach the coming
society, and let us resolve to use the premier resources of Reformed theology. If we can make these changes, then we may really start to see renewal and outreach, and we might actually be a resource for the broader body of Christ in this culture.

Read the entire article here & let us know your thoughts - especially as we're approaching the "Church Emergentcy" conference in June (more details to come).

New Blog Subscription Service

I just came across a more reliable subscription service for the 222mission blog. Those of you who have already subscribed to this blog through "Bloglet", will continue to receive updates, but they will be from "FeedBlitz" now instead of "Bloglet". You won't have to do anything different to receive these. If you are still receiving updates through "Bloglet" (which I've now renamed "Blog-let-down" :o), you may receive updates from both services for a few days. I am in the process of deleting all "Bloglet" subscriptions so you won't get duplicates.

If you haven't subscribed to this blog yet, now would be a great time. "FeedBlitz" will not spam your email inbox nor sell your address to other parties. It's easy to sign up.

Let me know how you like the new subscription service. Thanks!
