So, I spoke at Kairos on Sunday and it was an interesting discussion afterward. To explain for those non-Kairos people that frequent this blog (all two of you – my mom & grandma), sometimes after my talk at Kairos, we have a discussion where people can either make a comment, or ask a question either verbally, or by texting it to my phone.
The topic this last Sunday was on what is ‘the good news of Jesus’ ? I took much of what I spoke about from an article by Tim Keller entitled
The Gospel in All its Forms.
I know, I quote Keller a lot, but I find so much of what he says, and how he says things — to deeply resonate with me.
Anyway, as he says in the article ‘So yes, there must be one gospel, yet there are clearly different forms in which that one gospel can be expressed.’ However, with trying to explain that there are different forms (or aspects) of the gospel, I had the sense that these ‘Individual and corporate aspects of the gospel do not live in easy harmony with one another today.’ As some did not agree with this, some I think were a little confused as they had never heard this before, and a number of people said they absolutely loved the discussion.
Anyway, if you have time – read the article, and let me know what you think.
