truth and culture: intro

May 5, 2005

Arrgh…this is the second time I’ve written this post, because I accidentally deleted the first, which I sure was far better than this one will be.

An amigo sent me an angry, nearing irate, email this morning because I haven’t blogged in a while. Apparently, he relies on my blog posts for a full 1% of his spiritual vitality. Since I haven’t posted an entry in over a week, apparently he is in a drastic downward spiral. My deepest apologies to him and anyone else who somehow finds this place worthwhile. If there are others of you out there who rely on this blog to provide anywhere near 1% of your spiritual vitality, I don’t know if I should be greatly honored or deeply troubled.

Things haven’t necessarily been overly busy, but I haven’t had extended periods of time to just sit and ponder. I do have some things rattling around that I hope to talk about in a series of entries called Truth and Culture. I talk a lot here about how important it is for those who follow Jesus to be able to intersect in the culture, but I don’t think I necessarily understand how to do that well. I hope that hammering out some of the thoughts in this series will help me sort through some of that. Most of them will come from the perspective of one who teaches the Bible, because that is the perspective that comes most naturally for me, but I hope that you will be able to shift them into your context. And maybe they will even be worth a .1% contribution to your overall spirituality…
