Preview: Reverend Tim Carson

Lest someone get the idea that the new Two Friars and a Fool is going to be a Presbyterian thing we remind you that one-third of our merry band is Disciples of Christ. In our first month we will have a DoC, a Mennonite and a Baptist.

We are especially excited about the participation of Rev. Tim Carson. You can read some of his excellent ruminations at his own blog, or see some of the ministry he is doing at Broadway Christian Church. He is a guy who speaks and writes with refreshing vigor and honesty.

We won't divulge yet, what his article is about, but we asked him for something provocative, and boy has he delivered. Stay tuned.

One of the common mistakes Christianity has made is that if "my people" has come to mean America, and out of that misconception is the expectation that "they should know better".Americans are not backsliden Christians. We have to save the lost and quit expecting them to know better. To be in the world and expect sinners not to sin is CRAZY. It's hard enough for believers in Christ to live above it all.
Romans 6:11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

I do like the idea of guest bloggers, but will they all be clergy? There are thoughtful layfolk out there too.

@ Christine: Don't worry, they won't all be clergy. They won't all even be Christian. As we start off, we're finding people based on our own connections, but that will expand over time, and we have non-clergy on our list already. Glad you brought that up, though.
