Two articles very worth reading this weekend:
Comment author David T. Koyzis responds at length to James K.A. Smith's 2009 blockbuster Desiring the Kingdom in a blog at First Things.
And preceding today's civil religion reflections by John Seel and Ray Pennings, in yesterday's Ottawa Citizen Iain T. Benson questions why atheists and agnostics control the public purse strings, and urges a rethink of what the core of Canadian pluralism means.
. . . This week in Cardus Audio, Milton Friesen spent twenty minutes in conversation with leading theologian Dr. Stanley Hauerwas.
. . . And After Hours this week, Alissa is concerned that digital devices deprive us of downtime, keeping our brains from turning experiences into memories and factoids into knowledge.
