On Issues Etc. We’ll be discussing Reforming or Conforming: Post-Conservative Evangelicals and the Emerging Church.

Brilliant stuff from Nick at Restless and Reforming: Jesus: Simon, do you love me? Peter: Yes Lord, you know that I love you. Jesus: Fight injustice, homophobia, racism, you name it. Simon Peter, do you love me?
