Some would think that's an oxymoron. There are times I'd agree with them but only on my cranky days. :)
We've had a lot of interesting conversations about the environment in our household. We often converse about such things but especially since my son read Al Gore's book. So...I was very interested in a few book reviews by Andy Crouch about environmentalism from an evangelical perspective in Books & Culture called RX for Excess. I'm actually going to do a "cut and paste" to Word and keep this article close at hand.
I've been doing some pondering (oh, no...not again) about something that has puzzled me for...well, probably since I became serious about my faith in the Jesus People days of the early 70s. Why is it that at one time the brilliant musicians, painters, scientists, etc. were people of great faith and we don't see that as much today?
I know Schaeffer often said we lost the culture when we told young people it was more godly to become a missionary than a scientist or artist or politician. I know there have to be more Christians in in leadership positions of the Arts and Sciences then I read about...aren't there?
Sigh...forgive me if I'm not making sense but this is where my mind has gone this afternoon. Do check out the Books & Culture article, it is very good.
