Beyond the Top 5
More than 20 articles received votes. While we can’t share the full list, we wanted to highlight some of your thoughtful feedback on a handful of articles outside the top 5.
Sherelle Duckworth’s Juneteenth explainer received multiple votes. Here’s why Katherine D. found it so important:
- “I’m 41, and while it was tacked on quickly and obliquely with teaching the emancipation proclamation in school, I was a grown woman before I’d actually heard of Juneteenth. Beyond the history aspect, Juneteenth is a celebration of Imago day – and isn’t that for everyone to celebrate? I really appreciate it the knowledge and connection that Sherelle brought to me through her article.”
Jeremy Bell’s recent article on the “Ethical Implications” of the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court case also caught your attention. Andrew W. wrote us this:
- “The current Supreme Court case has gotten me more engaged on the topic on abortion than anything else has in recent memory, likely because of the very real hope and possibility that Roe v. Wade could be overturned. Resources like this are so encouraging.”
Finally, Josh P. had feedback for another Jeremy Bell article on Patriotic music in worship services, and it highlights the very tone we want to model here at the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture:
- “The author was very fair and balanced in discussing the issue. He is a veteran, and he has served as a pastor. His perspective in interesting, and he faithfully demonstrated the tension between the desire to be patriotic and the desire to worship God in songs during the gathering of believers in the local assembly. His three questions were thought provoking, and his conclusions were very helpful. His tone wasn’t derogatory toward those who are overly patriotic in July 4 worship services, but he effectively got his point across.”
