Last week, I had the distinct privilege of contributing to “The Common Good,” a radio show produced in Chicagoland by WYLL, which features two hours of interesting reflections, opinions, and general musings about life, the Church, faith, and whatever else comes, often-unfiltered, to the minds of the hosts, Brian From and Ian Simkins, both Chicago-area pastors. The latter, a former student of mine at Judson University, has been a friend for 20 years, and some of the most enriching, life-giving conversations I’ve ever had have come while noshing on an omelet or steak and eggs or a meat-lover’s skillet across the table from him. While Brian was on vacation, Ian invited a bunch of his friends to come and fill some air time, and I thought for this week’s blog post, I would simply link the 36-minute conversation for your consideration, since each of the four segments had its genesis in something written in the past year in this blog space. If you’ve read any of this blog over the past year, and if you’ve resonated with anything I’ve written, perhaps adding one additional dimension to the experience will be an additional blessing. Here’s hoping. The Lord be with you!
Coming next week (Lord willing): Back to the reflections on contemporary American worship.
