Well, its less than 48 hours until I need to pick up Mark Driscoll from the airport for the Desiring God National Conference. I have the distinct honor of hosting him during his stay in the Twin Cities. So you won’t be hearing from me for a few days. Check out Tim Challies live-blogging at his website this Friday through Sunday if you are unable to attend the conference.
This summer Mark Dever wrote an incisive post on “assumptions and pursuits” that included this quote:
I think the most basic practical division among evangelical pastors today may be between those who pursue faithfulness and assume relevance and those who pursue relevance and assume faithfulness.
The Together for the Gospel gang has now expanded on this theme in an article jointly written by Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan, Albert Mohler, and C. J. Mahaney. It apparently is a compilation of posts from this past summer. Each writer weighs in on the question of how pastors should think about pursuing relevance versus faithfulness.
