Happy Thanksgiving. Blog life continues at a slow pace, but the material I’ve accumulated over the years here has been invaluable to me in my first year of full-time ministry as a pastor. I am now in the process of working on a manuscript for a book for a reputable Reformed publisher on the subject of finding Christ in unexpected places in culture (think short stories, books, movies, documentaries, Ted talks, etc). If anybody out there has profited from my stuff over the years and has a decent platform, please let me know. I need blurbs! If you have a direct link to Tim Keller let me know. I need a blurb! That’s a joke, but it’s not a joke if you actually know him. He’s mentioned the book The Mark of Cain a lot over the years.
I’m co-writing this book with another pastor and we’re working off the foundation of Stuart Barton Babbage’s book The Mark of Cain and Mike Cosper’s The Stories We Tell. We’re trying to do something totally different from those books, but those are the main books that have approached the subject we’re trying to tackle at least in some sense. If you know of any others I can research, please let me know. For the theologically minded, the subject is ‘common grace.’
I’ll give some updates as a I move along in the next few months if anyone shows interest. That means leave a comment if you want to know what’s going on.
You can always keep up with me by checking out my most recent sermons HERE. There are two Thanksgiving sermons up – one on loneliness and one on giving thanks in difficult circumstances.
