Growing in Grace- Links 6/8

From the blog: Don’t Give Up

The Ordinary People God Chose

“At times, the local church can seem to us like a sporting event to a non-athlete, or a baking show to a microwave cook, or a book club to someone who doesn’t like to read. It can seem like a big fuss over something insignificant and lots of work with unimpressive results. Week after week, the unremarkable people of our local congregations gather to do the same things in the same way, followed by stale coffee served at plastic tables in a damp basement. We may wonder, Why bother?

Unmasking Racism, Starting with Me

“Before we jump straight into activism, some of us need to take a moment to unearth and repent of the racism and sin in our own hearts. Can we engage in meaningful conversations with others, and confess to one another our own failures and lack of concern? This will help us better lament with, learn from, and stand alongside our black brothers and sisters.”

The Important Work of Daily Faithfulness

“Faithfulness to Christ is a daily, lifelong pursuit. A lifetime of daily faithfulness will be full of unremarkable single days of faithfulness.”

Adorning the Gospel

“How do you adorn the gospel with creative elements in worship without hindering it?”

 

James Williams

Trying to live this life to the glory of God and help others in the process. Only by His grace!
