the sound of the truth
There's a very interesting piece on religious leaders' reactions to the immigration debate in the Dallas Morning news. This tension over the appropriate response to our country's economic dependence on illegal immigrants while wanting to have effective, legal enforcement of border security isn't going to go away - especially when you look at it from a faith-based point of view. My friend Leigh wrote an outstanding, thoughtful study for the BGCT a couple of years ago that addressed these very questions - write the CLC and they'll send you a copy.
Speaking of church and home, Daddy texted me to say that there's a review of the January 22 sermon at my church in Texas Monthly. That was the last service I was in town for. Kindof surreal to be reading about it here. I miss my church. I miss sermons in English. I miss non-fundamentalist-influenced theology. I miss having a preacher who goes beyond the surface to delve into really important questions. One more month.
