MultiCultural Worship Builds Community

I at one point had the privilege of speaking to 400 students about the concept of multicultural worship. First of all, I am encouraged by the fact that students in a Christian high school want to know more about multicultural worship (it was their idea to invite me to come!) A few days after the chapel, I got the chance to speak with one of the international students at the school. He said, “chapel was good this week.” I smiled and...

1 John 3:16–Hallow Men

 This is the way we know love is This is the way we lovers give This is the way we know love is     Not with a bang but a giver   This is the way we know love gives This is the way, no other is This is the way the world begins     He who was slain played the giver.   We are today, We know love is Our lives we lay, we also give Brothers repay, but we must end      Not with a bang but a...

One of our aims at The Doxology Project is to provide helpful articles that aid in shaping a holistic and biblical worldview.  We desire to help people see everything in the world as theological (making statements about God). Every slogan, from Burger King’s “have it your way” campaign, to Nike’s iconic “Just Do it” tagline, and every created product from the iPhone to the Droid makes promises of what it will take to apprehend the...

1 John 3:10-15

Don’t do right? Don’t be of God. More than ever If wronging your brother Who does right? Told from all-start To another Love, love, love Don’t be Cain of Evil One, Killing brother– To what point and purpose? Why Abel? Why kill brothers? Cain lived, ill works (Right Abel’s right) Don’t startle When Cains hate you. (We know we’ve bypassed Death unto living) We love brothers– (That’s...

1 John 3:7-10

Little kids, be artless, be not naive Listen not to the scoffer’s deceiving tongue. Only right-doers are right, For he who is righteous never does wrong See only wrong-doers are wrong For he known as devil can’t sing our new song From the get-go he sinned, and ever will sin For this God’s Son was unmasked in God’s Play Destroying the works of the devilish one. Those begotten of God never “will sin”...

Art in Christian Missions

Jesus Makes… In Matthew 4:19 Jesus called his disciples to follow and promised them that He would “make them fishers of men.” The Greek word for make, poieō, has some interesting implications. This word can refer to authorship, production, construction, formation, fashion, commerce, and even performance. In the same way that John the Baptist “prepared”—poieō the way for the Lord, so was Jesus planning to prepare these seemingly earthy...

What is Greatness?

  I don’t know about you, but when I gaze into the heavens, and when I survey the earth and the nature therein, I’m brought to my knees in awe at the wonders of God’s artistry!  No human can deny that there is an awe and majesty to our universe.  It’s simply dumbfounding.  Sadly, however, I have to confess that my response to such encounters with beauty, and the realizations that follow, do not always lead me to a life lived...

Evangelism, Imagination, and Artists

No one can believe anything they can’t imagine!!  That reality intimately makes artists and evangelism go together. But what about the importance of the content of evangelism, one might ask?  Most of you reading this blog agree with me about the content of evangelism:  it IS—the objective, existing reality of GOD, the loving work of Christ through which we access the Gospel, and the energizing of His Spirit empowering the Gospel.  ...

My Worth is Not My Own

One of the greatest struggles we each face is the search for significance. Our 21st-century sense of identity is grounded in individualism, self-entitlement, and narcissism. From whom we marry to what career choice we make to what church we attend to what we think of church music, every choice is geared around what these things do for us. This attitude of consumerism is one of the most prevalent idols in Western culture and has become...

John 1:1-14

The Word. The Word’s how it all began. The Word was. The Word is. The Word will come, for the Word is what he is. He was God & with God before it began.   All of it was made through him. Everything. Nothing, seen or unseen, came about without him, for in the Word was life.    Deep within him life sourced forth to radiate into the world as glorious light. This thickened, brightened light exposed darkness And Darkness cannot...

Four Window Wonders (Proverbs 30:18-19)

Other than two Aspirin, last night murdered me I awoke, grabbed some tea   Stepped into the study, ready to write Sitting, I teared up, glancing out   About our backyard, about the fields Then it all whisked away   Washed away my ribboned eyes from blue to white    from night to light In that wash of purity   In that veil of tears I lost grip of my desk   My pen fell from my hand I left   Though I didn’t mean to leave I left...

Psalm 7

[an Evasion of David from Cush to the Lord] O despot, harborage I dock in you Stall them, aid my break-out of this pursuit For if they catch me, who can salvage me? They will surely ribbon out my flesh. Dear God!  If I have painted evil’s hue, These hands of mine stained red, in vain pollute. If war’s now waged ‘tween peaceful friends and me Or I have now unjustly robbed my foe Then let each one soon snatch me, stamp...
