Catalogue of Repackagings / 001


Week 1 : Just a little side-note. I will do my best to publish and list all articles and note-worthy websites I encounter every week in this new portion and feature in my blog : The Sideline kid’s Catalogue of Repackagings. I needed a place to store all the articles I’d like to reread and this would likely be what I would really want to do, thank you Eureka! My google keep couldn’t keep up with the links I’ve been copy-pasting. Also, I thought of this as a fun way to practice annotating (even in just a short number of words) and also serve as an archive for the awesome things that are worthy of note and remembering. I will try to do this every Friday for the next millennia.

…and oh, I probably got this from the awesome Tim Challies‘s A La Carte feature in his blog. Thank you, Tim.

Christianity isn’t normal anymore, and that’s good news. The Book of Acts, like the Gospels before it, shows us that the Christianity thrives when it is, as Kierkegaard put it, a sign of contradiction. Only a strange gospel can differentiate itself from the culture around us. But the strange, freakish, foolish old gospel is what God uses to save sinners and to build the Church.
