In spite of my recent confession that I am not black, I have received a warm welcome by the contributors and commenters over at “Black and Reformed Ministries“. Some of you may have noticed that one of the contributors, Lionel, has been commenting on my blog as well.
I’ve particularly enjoyed Lionel’s last two posts: “Brothers, if you have any word of encouragement for the people, say it” and “Prophecy, Prayer, Women, and Teaching“. In these two posts, Lionel deals with issues concerning the meeting of the church – one of my interests, as most of my readers know.
I especially appreciate how Lionel is trying to consider all of the passages dealing with speaking during the church meeting. I’ve noticed that in most systematic theologies – and in most practices – some passages of Scripture are emphasized while others are de-emphasized or completely ignored. This seems dangerous and self-serving to me.
I think you will enjoy the conversation over at “Black and Reformed Ministries” – even if you aren’t black… or reformed.
