April 13 2014 By virtueonline TALLAHASSEE, FL: New St. Peter's Church nears completion

Father Andrew Rowell, associate rector of evangelism and discipleship at St. Peter’s, said the congregation is building a home for the future.

“When you look at St. Peter’s from the air, it’s a cross laid out on the ground,” Rowell said “It’s a stamp of the message of the gospel in building form.”

April 04 2014 By virtueonline The Fault Lines Before the Evangelical Earthquake

Can an institution with an historic evangelical identity be divided on an issue as central as marriage and family and still be evangelical? Related to this discussion are questions about the authority and interpretation of Scripture, cultural engagement, and institutional power. All sides of the debate recognize that the definition of evangelical is at stake, which is why some are now publicly casting off the term altogether.

When we finally arrived, we could not help but comment on the limited parking availability. As I tested my parallel parking skills, I thought of today’s trend to incorporate sufficient parking when planting new churches. Yet, in spite of the contrast to this new trend, Trinity, with limited parking, is growing. So, again we ask, what is happening here? What is bringing joy and growth to this inner city parish? The answer, definitely, was to be found inside.

April 02 2014 By virtueonline SYMPOSIUM: Millennials & Church: Matter Matters - Part III

The crisis of worship and the crisis on moral teaching in churches today are not separate issues. I do not think it is an accident that the churches that have preserved forms of worship that can be traced back over 2000 years are also the ones that have kept the same teachings on sexual ethics. I will only speak for myself, but what drew me to the Orthodox Church was its sense of having preserved something that can be traced all the way back to the Apostles.

April 02 2014 By virtueonline SYMPOSIUM: Tony Jones and Me - Part II

Mr. Jones probably doesn’t realize how much influence he had over me during college. The emergent movement was still en vogue five years ago and I, like many others, swooned over the idea of coffee house sermons and yoga worship sessions. Thinking back, I realize now that the only reason why the emergent movement ever attracted me in the first place was because I was seeking approval.

March 31 2014 By virtueonline SYMPOSIUM: What Does Liberal Christianity Offer Millennials?

I think many liberal Christians, but certainly not all, would agree with me that the Church exists to mix things up a bit. She is not in the business of making anyone feel comfortable. However, it is true of revolutionary movements everywhere, that there is always lurking in the background some ‘committee of public safety’ deciding which establishments we are to mix up and which we are to keep.

The other side of the coin provides a different story no matter what some alleged enlightened non-Christians believe and demand.

Some 30 years after hearing the "Mission-Aires" sing and talk about "mission-fields" a young group of collegians organized food distribution in Omdurman, historic city near the The Sudan's capital Khartoum.

"It began in January of last year," he explained. "I woke up very early on several nights and was prompted by God with this one thought."

The thought was: "Let us begin to think about engineering a new course for secular post-modern Europeans that will lead them totally into the Church of God and will lead to church planting."

February 18 2014 By virtueonline Holy Trinity Brompton and the New Form of British Evangelicalism

Here's how it works. People become Christians on Alpha, which usually introduces them not just to the gospel, but also to a particular form of middle-class, charismatic, non-confessional, low church, generic evangelicalism (which is increasingly representative of the sorts of churches they will find in their area, whether they are Anglican or not, including mine).

February 05 2014 By virtueonline Which global church?

Many participants at the August meeting were young and reflected the enthusiasm of the fastest-growing segment of the Christian world. In 1970 Pentecostals accounted for only 5 percent of all Christians, but today Pentecostals and charismatics-including those in other denominations who exercise Pentecostal or charismatic gifts-constitute 25 percent of all the world's Christians. In Asia, 80 percent of all Christian conversions are to Pentecostal forms of Christianity.
