We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. (Psalms 78:4)
For us, the (near) future is always uncertain. But uncertainty comes in shades. There may be a correlation but, at a time when the uncertain future has a darker hue, there seems to be a generational transition of leadership in the Christian church in America.
That sense is particularly poignant today. So this week, on the heels of his recent farewell to pastoral ministry at Bethlehem Baptist, I will post clips of an interview with John Piper from March of 2012. The conversation was framed as the passing of wisdom and lessons learned from one generation of pastor to the next. Each one adds some bright brush strokes to contrast that "darker hue."
