Finding your Voice

When I created this blog it was with the intention of having a place to process my thoughts, ideas, or questions regarding my faith. I have neglected it over the past 5 months largely because I have not had the capacity to process much outside of my seminary classes. I have been learning a lot about the church, my beliefs, and the vision  I believe God is giving me for the Church. I believe that after having finished my first semester of seminary I am moving out of the fog and into a space where I have the capacity to begin putting my words to paper. 
I want to take a few post to look at historical Christians who have found their voice and been willing to raise it for what they believe. Too often I believe that our churches (and Christians in general) have been unwilling to stand up for our beliefs and voice the truths found in scripture. In a society that all too often drowns out the voices of reason with those of fame and fortune I believe that many more Christians need to find their voice and proclaim their beliefs boldly. Last week I saw the movie “The Kings Speech” and was reminded that I have a voice and it is about time I begin to use it to stand up for my beliefs. My hope is that through looking at the courage of other Christians to speak the truth we may be inspired to boldly proclaim Christ to a world that so desperately needs Him. Please check this blog for some new updates to come over the next month. God bless.
