Three to Read (Feb. 21, 2017)

Here is this week’s Three to Read. The first is a Q&A interview with Old Testament scholar, Walter Bruegemann. He is asked some difficult questions about some pressing questions facing the church today. His responses may be a bit provocative and bring up more questions than answers. By doing so, hopefully, it will spark some good conversation.

The second article, takes us back to a recurring topic we have been discussing as a community: Noise and Distraction. And it asks: What is it costing us spiritually? (You’ll hear more about this in the coming weeks as we head into the season of Lent.)

The last article is a kind of devotional commentary on the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). It would be worthwhile to take some to read this post alongside the passage in Luke to help you reflect more deeply on a familiar story (and our current political climate).

  1. “It’s Not a Matter of Obeying the Bible”
  2. The Spiritual Cost of Distraction
  3. Does Your Heart Break Like a Samaritan?
