Communal Table (July 13)

Communal Table is a weekly feature where I share and recommend various things that I've enjoyed on the world wide interweb and other places (real places, even). A link to a particular website does not mean that I endorse everything that is said, but that there is at least something that I have appreciated from the article/book/audio/podcast/video/etc. 

I hope this will prove to be a valuable resource for you. It will sometimes be entertaining, though not necessarily always. As a professor of mine once said, education should be entertaining: "edu-tainment."

What shootings and racial justice mean for the body of christ

Last week, Russell Moore wrote a knockout article addressing what the recent shootings and racial justice mean for the church.

We must bear one another’s burdens (Gal. 6:2), which means that those in majority cultures listen to our brothers and sisters who are directly in harm’s way.
