In today’s #FaithandCulture Reading, we cull a brief list of some of our favorite articles of the week. Today we highlight articles from Bruce Ashford, Karen Swallow Prior, Craig Sanders and Hugh Whelchel.
Bruce Ashford comments on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. “Kavanaugh’s legal opinions and occasional writings coalesce to provide a clear picture of his judicial philosophy, especially his view that a judge’s role is to be an ‘umpire’ rather than a ‘player,'” he writes.
“Perhaps if we wish to reform morality, we should turn more attention to the formation of character,” writes Karen Swallow Prior at Christianity Today.
Craig Sanders reflects on Augustine’s view of wealth in this article at Made to Flourish. “Christians more than ever need a renewed sense of purpose in seeing Jesus among the vulnerable and recognizing the needy as companions on the heavenly journey,” he writes.
A photo of The Cosby Show actor Geoffrey Owens working at Trader Joe’s is making its rounds on social media. Over at The Institute for Faith, Work and Economics, Hugh Whelchel uses this story to speak about the dignity of all work.
