Mature Examples of Christianity: Part FOUR
About this Post:
Scott Savage is a pastor in Kansas, and like me, a Nazarene (for me at least part-time! Me and some friends of mine call ourselves “Nazbeens” with some regularity!). His blog “Two Empty Hands” is really a wide spectrum of all things “mature” evangelical. In this post, Scott talks about how liturgy helps shape what we love — just like the Mall! It will be a great day when mass media go swarming to Scott’s blog (and others like his) and say: “Look! The Evangelicals care about the urban poor! And the environment! And they still believe in the Bible!? How is that possible!?”

About this Series:
I’ve stumbled into a group of Christian bloggers who are all amazing. They really extend a ton of grace by associating with me at all. So I would love to leverage my 15 (thousand!) readers to give them some praise.
I’m calling this series “Examples of Mature Christianity” because there aren’t enough examples of it out there in the blogosphere nowaday. The world thinks Christians are all just a bunch of “blind faith”, “abortion doctor killing” “creationists” who want Santorum to run the country and turn it “back” into a theocracy. We really don’t need any more of those types of voices on the net — do we!? So, over the next few weeks read a bit from folks who have let their Christian beliefs actually sink into their souls and give them new and fresh perspectives which have sincerely shaped their behaviors and lifestyles. We don’t all think the same thing, because we’re people too, not just Bible believers!
