Untainted Wonder (#801)


Kyle sat through a baby dedication on Mother's Day and what the parents were told in that setting pegged his yuck meter. How are we going to keep kids untainted by religious performance if some pastors keep shoveling it on with abandon? That leads to a spirited conversation about how we shed the weight of obligation and recapture the wonder of God's beauty and power at work in the world and a letter from a pastor that reminds us people who are fleeing religion "aren't rejecting Jesus but churches that represent him badly." They end with Psalm 96, an amazing anthem to the beauty of God's glory as it overruns the earth to set things right that sin has twisted.
