In this week's fast-paced Think Friday I move from the world cup to the Thai caves rescue stopping by a few more topical issues on the way.
I mention a local radio interview from Pastor Lucus Parks from Village Church Belfast. He speaks boldly and graciously about his concern for the local community over a dangerous bonfire which was subject to a Court order this week. You can listen to Lucus here.
I also mention my review of Vicky Beeching's new book Undivided which is currently the most read article on our website. You can read it here.
Finally, I was reading Hebrews 6 this morning and was really struck by how the Message translates the first few verses. They seemed to really speak to this cultural moment that we are in.
Hebrews 6: 1 - 3 So come on, let’s leave the preschool fingerpainting exercises on Christ and get on with the grand work of art. Grow up in Christ. The basic foundational truths are in place: turning your back on “salvation by self-help” and turning in trust toward God; baptismal instructions; laying on of hands; resurrection of the dead; eternal judgment. God helping us, we’ll stay true to all that. But there’s so much more. Let’s get on with it!
