Well done, Eric. I like how you push it out into statements that you know will be controversial. That approach feeds me, and keeps it from being boring or just stating the routine and obvious. I’ve never been surprised by the “kingdom” message. I wonder if in my life and circles that Ladd had already made his point. As for pomp and pageantry in worship, I suppose there are groups and individuals who could use a little less. Speaking as a Mennonite, I think we could use a little (I’m being discreet) more. Moving on to other topics… “simply” finding political candidates who will reflect kingdom values?! I’m afraid the “simple” part took the field. Might that be at best a tortured decision? How about a pod cast ?
Thanks for your comments, Reuben. I appreciate the affirmation. Regarding the Kingdom message, I grew up in Dispensationalism, and it took a long time for that perspective on the Kingdom to be displaced in my thinking. Ladd’s view was a new, albeit transformative, thought. And I take your point regarding the reference to candidates who represent Kingdom values. I debated using the word “simply” in that particular sentence, then threw it in ad lib. I guess I meant that the principle is a simple one; it’s implementation clearly is not so simple. Thanks for listening, Reuben. Grace and peace, E.
Great speaking voice!
