Allan R. Bevere: The Church Has an Identity Crisis

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/Q7gEiZ3LWQY/the-church-has-identity-crisis.html


The church in the 21st century West faces an identity crisis which it must resolve. Is the church going to be the people of God Jesus called it to be making disciples for the purpose of making disciples, or will it continue to grasp after a Christendom past that is almost used up never to return? Will the church in the West move into the future as God's one, true nation or will it seek once again to make an earthly nation Christian when in reality it never was?

Allan R. Bevere: Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction: Ice Burglars Now on Ice after Falling in Ice

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/L3qHdehw8Lo/truth-is-stranger-than-fiction-ice.html


By Brendan O'Brien

Jan 21 (Reuters)-- Two men are in hot water in northwest Wisconsin where they are accused of burglarizing ice shacks before the car they were driving on a frozen lake broke through the ice and sank, authorities said on Wednesday.

Ryan VanPuymbrouck, 20, and Tyler Hale, 24, both of Solon Springs, Wisconsin, are accused of taking a television, liquor, an auger used for cutting holes through the ice and other items on Monday from shacks set up on the frozen Upper St. Croix Lake, the Douglas County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

The men were driving along the lake when the car, a 2014 Ford Focus compact car owned by Hale's girlfriend, broke through the ice. The pair got out safely and flagged down a fisherman who called police, according to the sheriff's department.

Hale and VanPuymbrouck initially told deputies they were just driving around on the ice, but later confessed to the crimes and now face several burglary charges, the sheriff's department said.

The uninsured car was found submerged in about 6 feet of water, the department said. (Reporting by Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee; Editing by Sandra Maler)

Allan R. Bevere: Marcus J. Borg (1942-2015)

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/KFHcR00QPqg/marcus-j-borg-1942-2015.html


David F. Watson has written a fitting tribute on the occasion of Borg's death. Like David, I disagreed with Borg far more than I agreed. But his scholarship was challenging and made me think. Of Borg, David writes,
With Borg's passing, we lose another of a great generation of liberals. I don't mean liberal in the sense of his theology or ethics, though he fit quite well within the world of existentialist and process theology. (Just read his book, The God We Never Knew.) I mean that you could dialogue with him. He was liberal in an older sense of that term as applied to academics. You could have respectful disagreement with him. To my knowledge, he did not belittle his opponents or caricature their positions. His work with N. T. Wright, The Meaning of Jesus: Two Visions, is a model of respectful disagreement and discourse. Borg was truly a gentleman and a scholar.
Civility requires humility. We need more of both.
