In doing the work that we do, we seek to ensure that the dignity of mothers, children, men, women, the elderly, and the young is respected. God has provided us with a world of plenty, making the injustice of hunger so much more egregious.
If Christians are to live out their lives before the face of God, where should they look for guiding principles in how to conduct agriculture?
Sometimes our Reformation emphasis on putting the Bible in hands of everyone leads to the false conclusion that the Bible requires no interpretation.
The best thing we can do to prepare to read and hear the biblical story is to exercise our imagination.
I have become more solidly convinced over time that a huge reason why we don’t read our Bibles more isn’t because we are afraid it isn’t true but because are terrified that it really is.
Maybe the truth of Christianity is proven, not when our ideas perfectly capture how the world is, but first and foremost by our God working in and through us, helping us become what we (truly) are: image bearers of the one true God.
