A Portrait of Sin, February 22, 2010

(After my first, difficult attempt at pastoral work, I went through a difficult season in 2008-9, which I chronicled in the book, “A Faith in Dialogue.” I did not preach during this time, and seriously considered giving up on church altogether. I was lead back to the fold by the mind of Augustine and the heart of my caring, small home church. The ministries of Mark Driscoll and Bruxy Cavey also played a significant role. For my mature reflection on Emergent, see sermon from April 10, 2011, above.)
