The Glammy’s are only a few weeks away, and we wanted to remind everyone of a few things:
1. Parents, please let us know if you’d like to bring a main dish, a side dish or dessert. Let us know if you’d like to serve as well. (You’re welcome to stay and watch the movies.) Email Sharon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want info about meals and serving.
2. If you are not a parent, but a student, Remember that we need movie submissions soon (see the flyer for details) and also remember that you do not have to submit a movie to come.
3. Make sure you understand what “funky formal” means…
After I put up the last post, I realized that I left off the paragraph that connects the dots to our personal reading of the Bible. This is very helpful, so, here is what should have been the last paragraph in the previous post…
“Now, to be sure, there are questions about where we can find God’s personal words today, for he does not normally speak to us now as he did to Abraham…But the answer cannot be that God’s personal words are unavailable to us, or unintelligible to us. If we say either of those things, then we lose all touch with the biblical gospel. The idea that God communicates with human beings in personal words pervades all of Scripture, and it is central to every doctrine of Scripture. If God has, in fact, not spoken to us personally, then we lose any basis for believing in salvation by grace, in judgment, in Christ’s atonement— indeed, for believing in the biblical God at all. Indeed, if God has not spoken to us personally, then everything important in Christianity is human speculation and fantasy.”
He ends the thought like this: “Scripture, together with all of God’s other communications to us, should be treated as nothing less than God’s personal word.” Now turn off your computer and go let God speak to you in His word!
