Weekly Wrap-Up

Weekly Wrap-Up, 10/11

Some links to polish off your work week so you can get  home and polish off some ribs this weekend:

From JesusCreed–Jesus at the Margins: Shame (by John Frye): “Jesus looks at us and smiles. He raises his hands and blesses the bread from the earth and the wine from the grape. He blesses as only a Good Host, a Good Shepherd can bless. By the time he stops, we really do not care what we are, but who he is. And one thing he is: he is for us, not against us.”

From TamedCynic: Why Do Christians Value Respectability over Authenticity?: “On many levels, ours is an inauthentic culture: the artificial is everywhere and everywhere it is promised to trump the real thing. In such a culture, Christians are called to be a People who are honest, genuine and real.”
