I really thought that a post on N.T. Wright might generate some interesting conversation that would take my mind off of the presidential election for awhile, but I see that didn’t work. I suppose I could join in the fun of wallowing around in the angst of Anglican politics, but that always seems to me to be too much of a distraction from God, Christ, the gospel and the mission of the church. True, it’s one way of enticing a lot of commentary, most of it indignant self-righteous b.s.. But it’s almost a form of idolatry; No, not almost, it is! For a little arm’s length entertainment there is always the Canadian election, which, unlike how Canadians are supposed to behave, seems to be as adept at slinging mud as Americans. Washington football is no better considering the performance of the Seahawks, U. of WA and WA State. What I’m actually exploring in my own mind right now is the nature of stewardship. After all, we are also in the midst of stewardship season, and I’ve always felt that it should be more of an expression of worship and evangelism than a thing by itself. But as far as I can tell, nothing in the last century or so has worked to make it so.
