Hello, blog readers and subscribers! I hope your week has been fruitful as you have been building for the Kingdom. November has been an eventful month, and December is certain to be full of many opportunities for prayer and working for God’s peace on the earth.
The following post is a monthly blog update. I have decided I will be posting a “Blog News & Update” at the end of every month.
Here’s a glance back and a look forward.
The Month of November
- The Rapture Fallacy
- Have You Checked Your Filers Lately?
- Empire: A Home for Demons
- That’s My King — Election Day
- The Election, Satan & the Sovereignty of God
- Q&A with Pastor Greg Boyd (Part I-III)
- Who Get’s Left Behind?
- Theology Matters (video)
This month I have continued sharing my thoughts on rapture theology that first began in October with Rapture Theology: History & Influence. You can expect more on this topic in the days to come.
I also finished up an interview with pastor and theologian Greg Boyd. I really appreciate Greg taking time out of his busy schedule to answer some questions concerning his ministry and upcoming books.
You can expect a Q&A with Frank Viola on his new book Jesus: A Theography real soon. The book will make an excellent Christmas gift.
Did You Miss These?
I have had quite a few new subscribers over the last month. Regular readers know that I’ve been blogging on a regular basis for two months now. So, some of you may have missed a popular post during that time.
Did you miss any of these?
- Addressing Homosexuality: A Third Way
- Will the Real Heretics Please Stand Up?
- Reassessing Church Leadership
- Vision for 21st Century Evangelicalism
Reminder About Purpose
As I wrote in last month’s blog update, it is my desire that this blog would contribute to biblical academic dialogue, encourage humble Christ-followers, and challenge honest skeptics.
As a young academic and an aspiring Christian mystic, this blog is unashamedly a reflection of my pursuit of Christ in spirit, soul, and body—the realm of the intellect as well as spiritual imagination.
I have a passion to help bridge the gaps between faith & reason, mind & spirit, church & academy, science & theology, etc.
While I often post stuff to stimulate the intellect, you can also expect devotional writings and other practical posts. See the “Deeper Christian Life” section at the Archives page.
Primarily, this blog is dedicated to those who are loving Jesus with all of their heart, soul, strength, and mind. As Paul said, “… so that in everything he might have the supremacy” (Col. 1:18).
Consider How You Can Share
I want this blog to be accessible and readable. You can help me do that by taking the time to “join the discussion” through commenting on posts and giving feedback below each blog post you’ve read.
As I continue my attempts at maintaing a blog that is deeply theological and at the same time relevant to the spiritual life of my readers, I would like to ask that you share your thoughts on posts that resonate with you.
I have many readers and subscribers who have never commented here at the blog. While I’m thankful for those that do comment regularly, it would be beneficial to everyone if more folks would take the time to share.
This is your opportunity to share your thoughts, your questions, and your concerns about the issues. I would love to hear from you.
Remember: When you do comment on the blog, try to keep it brief so as to foster discussion. You can “reply” to the post, or even respond directly to another person’s comment.
In the future, please consider the following ways of participating here at the blog: Comment on a post, “Like” the post, “Share” the post by clicking on a social network, or even kindly disagree with the post.
Just make sure you follow the blog Rules.
Final Month of 2012
As you all know, December can be a little hectic as the year winds down and Christmas approaches. I will be blogging regularly for most of the month, but you can expect a break the last week or so.
I plan to pick back up after New Years… assuming that the Mayan calendar is wrong and the world doesn’t end. ;-)
Thanks for reading. I look forward to hearing from you.
D.D. Flowers, 2012.
