Bohlender and Burdens…

Run, don’t walk, over to Randy Bohlender’s blog and read this post. It is well worth your and my time this morning because he reminds us that sometimes we do have burdens for places, people, events, etc., that we really can’t explain, except that God has placed them there for a reason. And then there’s this line…

For all of our postmodern ranting about pursuing the mystical side of our faith – the part our modern forefathers supposedly abandon – good luck finding a postmodern speaking much about these two. Why? Because they both carry an overtone of responsibility and others-focus. When most belly-aching postmoderns talk about the mystical, what they mean is the ME-stycal. The current reformation is arguable more self centered than the prior incarnation of the church, particularly in the area of prayer.

What’s your burden today?
