Blogs and web sites old and new

I have a couple of blogs and web sites I want to highlight.

I just recently got back in touch with an old friend who does apologetics. And missional is the air he breathes. John Morehead used to come into the Apologetics Resource Center office in Sacramento when I was working there. He was a United States Service man (I don't remember which branch)but intended to work at apologetics and ministry to new religions when finished. And so he has, and in a big way. Picture-In the Apologetic Resource Office.

Moreheads Musings

His blog is Morehead’s Musings. Morehead also has three projects, Western Institute for Intercultural Studies where he is the Director, Sacred Tribes Journal, where he is a senior editor and Lausanne Issue Group on Postmodern and Alternative Spiritualities.

Morehead has two books published, one can be down loaded, Burning Man Festival as Life-Enhancing, Post-Christendom 'Middle Way' and one of which he is a contributing Editor, Encountering New Religious Movements: A Holistic Evangelical Approach. That one I have and it is very good. You will also find many helpful articles on Morehead’s site.

Theology Matters

Another site I want to highlight is an old one that has been redone. And as far as I am concerned the new look is excellent. That is Theology Matters which is the publication of Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry. If you visited the site in the past you may have experienced trouble getting about because there was so little there. But now there is so much more.

And if you scout around you will find pictures of the Board of Directors except for several of us who keep forgetting to send them to Sue Cyre our Executive Director.

In case anyone is unfamiliar with Theology Matters and Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry here is our statement of purpose:

Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry is working to restore the strength and integrity of the Presbyterian Church (USA)'s witness to Jesus Christ as the only Lord and Savior, by helping individual Presbyterians develop a consistent Reformed Christian worldview.

Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry is committed to the restoration of Reformed theology as taught in Scripture and expressed in the Confessions, in the lives of individual Presbyterians and in the Church. To affirm the Christian faith is necessarily to reject all false ideologies. The First Commandment carries both a commitment to the One true Lord God and a rejection of false gods, "I am the Lord your God...you shall have no other gods before me." To commit to the Lord God and reality as he has defined it, without also rejecting false gods and their worldview is to unite the worship of the living God with idols.

Therefore Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry is committed to promoting the doctrines of Reformed Christian faith and their worldview implications by contrasting them with the beliefs of false religions and their distorted worldviews.

Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry is convinced that an obedient understanding of family and ministry can only grow out of a faith in Jesus Christ that is based on Scripture and the Confessions.

Hi John,
I hope I got the information all okay. I don't think so.
