Post Icon

In today’s #FaithandCulture Reading, we cull a brief list of some of our favorite articles of the week on wisdom, coronavirus, Memorial Day, poverty and more — featuring selections from Alistair Roberts, Matthew Daniel, Ann Bradley, Al Erisman, and more.

  • Wisdom and Folly in Christian Responses to Coronavirus
    Alistair Roberts: “The wise surround themselves with a multitude of counsellors. By contrast, fools merely appeal to whatever ‘expert’ will confirm them in their ways, dismiss the experts as agents of a conspiracy or blind servants of an ideological agenda, or absolve themselves from the task of discernment by appeal to the fact that ‘experts disagree.'”
  • 5 Facts About Memorial Day
    The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission staff: “On Monday, Americans will observe Memorial Day, a federal holiday for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces.”
  • Poverty, not Income Inequality, Is Our Modern Problem
    Dr. Ann Bradley at The Institute for Faith, Work, and Economics: “Rather than directing our energies toward the biggest incomes, perhaps our focus should be directed toward how we can help those trapped in poverty.”
  • Celebrating the Dignity of Frontline Workers
    Al Erisman at Made to Flourish: “Perhaps with the current emphasis on “essential workers,” we will come from this period with a renewed sense of this wider view of faith and work.”
