    I’m in the midst of a biography on Ernest Shackleton and his expedition in the Endurance. He set out in 1914 to be the first to navigate to the South Pole. It has been a fascinating read so far. Several aspects of his journey and leadership have grabbed my attention. Not only is the story remarkable but I’ve found some significant spiritual parallels along the way. I’d like to share one of those with you.

    As a follower of Jesus, I have been called to be an agent of justice in a battered world. And if you’re a follower of Jesus, then so have you. We’re not meant to sit around and watch as the needy are neglected and the vulnerable are exploited. We’re meant to step into the fray, speak up for the voiceless, and make a difference for the kingdom. But although I long to be faithful to this call, I find it easy to be overwhelmed.

    Never call anyone “stupid.” It’s an insult. I grew up being told, “Never call anyone stupid." But what does it mean to call someone “stupid”?

    In the sermon last Sunday, I addressed the importance of "family as church" as a key building block of faith for the next generation. To those of you who are already living out Psalm 78 in your home: thank you. I thank God for you! And I thank God for the privilege of serving and supporting you as you “tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord” (Psalm 78:4). But if talking about God or his word in your home is a challenge for you—or if reading the Bible with your kids sounds a bit daunting—may I suggest a simple framework for living out “family as church” in your home? All families have some sort of daily and weekly rhythms. So here’s my encouragement to you.
