Turns of Phrase
September 4, 2008
For my first post since June (so long I could hardly remember how to find the window for posting), I share a couple of apt turns of phrase from my friend and colleague Paul Tripp, who is just finishing a summer series in the Psalms.
In describing the consumeristic approach that many Americans take towards church (the "what's in it for me" mentality), Dr. Tripp talked about turning the church into "an ecclesiastical Macy's."
Then this past Sunday night, in his sermon on the greatness of God, as revealed in Psalm 145, Paul preached about the time when Jesus did the unthinkable, and "the feet of greatness touched the earth." Good stuff.
