February 6, 2014
NASHVILLE — The Southern Baptist Convention’s ethics entity has launched a new initiative to help evangelical Christians understand and respond to public issues.
The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) unveiled “Canon & Culture: Christianity & the Public Square” on Jan. 28. The new project — with blog and podcast components — will seek “to help build and strengthen the church’s social witness by providing thoughtful content that inspires a rising generation of evangelicals to think Christianly about the public square,” according to the ERLC.
The Canon & Culture blog channel will include essays by leaders in Southern Baptist life, scholars, seminary presidents and professors, policy experts and think-tank specialists. The essays — expected to be posted each Tuesday and Thursday — will address a broad range of topics, such as art, ethics, vocation, culture, philosophy, politics and technology.
