Friend of Grace Fridays

Friend of Grace FridaysFriend of Grace Fridays: Our Mafia mascot, Grace, provides a weekly collection of blog posts & articles she digs…or hates. Either way, they’re thought-provoking and challenging.


Leaders and Friends Remember John Stott by Chris Norton. “What Billy Graham, Mark Noll, John Piper, and others are saying about the life and ministry of John Stott.”

Number of clergy couples is on the rise by Colette M. Jenkins. “While clergy couples have the challenges of balancing the needs of their families and those of their congregations and of finding pastorates in the same geographical location, having a partner who knows the demands of ministry lessens the burden.”

Evangelical women rise as new ‘feminists’ by Lisa Miller. “Now, in a reversal, some conservative Christian women are tentatively claiming the feminist label for themselves. In the reframing, feminism has nothing to do with a woman’s right to choose an abortion or with government programs for the poor.”

Membership Matters. Right? by Kyle Roberts. “Church membership is a rarity today. Church leaders should create a culture of participation and shared ownership.”

The Cosmopolitan Conservative by R.R. Reno. “Has American liberalism lost its capacity to govern? I’m afraid so. Liberals can still win elections and propose realistic policies. But as a culture, liberalism has become insular and narrow-minded. It lacks the capacity for the generous appreciation of other points of view needed in a pluralistic society. That capacity is more likely to be found today among conservatives, particularly religious conservatives.”

The Church as the Bride of Caesar by Fr. Robert A. Sirico. “In the moral calculus of Jim Wallis and his Circle of Protection supporters, there’s no problem with prostrating yourself, your Church, and your aid organization before Caesar. As long as he’s on your side of the partisan divide.”

Equality, Envy, and Idolatry by Isaac Morehouse. “The idea that we must reduce inequality of wealth by taxing the rich is an ineffective means of achieving an immoral end.”
