I have often thought this quotation from T. S. Eliot sums up what TPC is all about and what we are trying to do:

The World is trying the experiment of attempting to form a civilized but non-Christian mentality. The experiment will fail; but we must be very patient in awaiting its collapse; meanwhile redeeming the time: so that the Faith may be preserved alive through the dark ages before us; to renew and rebuild civilization, and save the World from suicide.

This is a follow up to my earlier post on recent tragedies.

Here are my criteria for a political theology:

Work, like so many other things in our culture today, has been politicized.

I had the honor and pleasure of doing an interview with 1819 News this week, hosted by Bryan Dawson and Ray Melick. If you are not familiar with 1819 News, it's a great way to keep up with news in Alabama from a Christian perspective. The interview started out talking about the breakdown of the family in relation to social crises like the recent school shooting in Texas (especially Mo Brooks' comments in this interview), but from there, we went on to touch on a wide variety of topics, from gendered piety to psalm singing. You can find the YouTube version here and the Apple podcast version here.
