I just recently became aware of a discussion that grew out of the Third Lausanne International Congress on World Evangelism in Cape Town this past October.

Maria, 7, and Lupe, 3, are our next-door neighbors. For some reason, they have decided they like coming to our house.

We rarely slow down to create the sacred space needed to discern the "signs of the times" and who we are as Christians in this time of America.

About a year ago, when we were writing our song "White Flag Warrior," my friend (and fellow frontman) Stephen and I had quite a conversation. We talked about Leonard Cohen's song "Story of Isaac" and about Kierkegaard's multiple interpretations of Genesis 22, about Malcolm X challenging MLK Jr.

Yikes. It has been a long month, and it is technically not over yet. Green jargon and advertising every place your eyes dare to settle.
