Saturday Morning Brunch (3-2-13)

First of all, an early Happy Birthday to my brother, Doug, who will be 21 tomorrow!!  (On a totally unrelated note, I officially am old…)

Second, for those who are in New Haven or nearby, I will be preaching this Wednesday in Marquand Chapel at Yale Divinity School (March 6 at 10:30am, 409 Prospect Street).  Its a short homily in the midst of a service of sung morning prayer, all are welcome, please feel free to join us!

Third, here’s a few things that have caught my eye from around the web this week.  Enjoy!

From Richard Beck at Experimental Theology, a look at Paul’s language about the atonement in Galatians that argues Paul isn’t talking about penal substitution.

From Chaplain Mike at Internet Monk, a reflection on the idea of schism in the church and its parallels to stories of judgment in the Bible.

From Rachel Held Evans, an interesting look at the way the Bible was used in arguments for and against the abolition of slavery in the 19th century and how that rhetoric is parallel to many discussions today.
