Weekly Wrap (10/02)

by Joel Hawting | @jhawting

Bringing Jesus to the Superbowl - This column from the USA Today website by Ed Stetzer is a fantastic insight into what is deemed to be offensive or off limits, when it comes to media advertising. To quote Ed: "A scantily clad Kardashian or Danica tottering around in stilettos? No problem. Taking Jesus' name not in vain, however, was going too far."

The Value of a Tired Soul - Dave Dunham writes for the Gospel Coalition about the value of sorrow and weariness for people in Ministry.

The Danger of Being a Woman - Eugene Cho reflects on the poor treatment of women in society today, focussing particularly on the role that the media has in shaping identity and value for women in society. A fantastic article that I wrote some reflections on earlier this week myself.

Atheist 'Churchgoers' - An interesting article from the Guardian Newspaper about an atheist 'church' in London.

What Would Jesus Do With Christmas Island? - Robert Martin from the Bible Society of Australia attempts to tackle this emotive and political issue from a biblical perspective.

Thought for the day...

"If Jesus were to come today people would not crucify him. They would ask him to dinner, hear what he had to say and make fun of it."
— T Carlyle
