Wednesday mornings at Between the Times feature the work and writing of the good folks at Southeastern’s Center for Great Commission Studies. This week, we highlight a recent blogpost by Greg Mathias on the non-essentials of life.
Here’s an excerpt:
I often tell missionaries-in-training to cultivate a simple spiritual life. I’m not advocating for a simplistic walk, but for a God-ward life that doesn’t depend too much on the easiness of our American Christian subculture. Podcasts, Christian books and music, and Christian community are not problematic in and of themselves, but if your walk is adversely affected when there is not the same level of access to these things, you may need to reassess and reconnect to the true vine of John 15.
