Media Digest 1/18/18

     A great deal of what I like to post on this site is media content from other providers whose work I found impressive or helpful. I consume so much media on a regular basis, and I love to share the highlights of what I am finding. I don’t feel like an article or podcast or video is fully appreciated until it is shared. And, for one reason or another, I don’t want to post it all on my social media accounts.

     That said, I’ve decided I will occasionally make a single post sharing some of the best media content I have read, watched or listened to lately. Some content might still deserve a review in its own post in order to highlight it, but that will be on special occasions.

     Feel free to check these “Media Digests” out for great places to turn for thoughtful, edifying material to study or entertain your mind with!

     So far this week…

  • Bruxley Cavey on “Hell”

     A friend introduced me to this YouTube channel featuring a pastor named Bruxley Cavey. I was really impressed with him in these two episodes on the topic of “Hell.” Bruxley reexamines what Scripture has to say about how we define Hell, and he gives a very well-argued case against believing in eternal conscious torment. 

     I feel like Bruxley brought a lot of knowledge to the table concerning this topic that I had never considered before….

  • “The Dr. King You Never Knew”

     Attorney Breanne Palmer wrote a great article in honor of Dr. King that was published on Relevant Magazine’s website. The article brings a good reminder that, though we do seek pure and peaceful means for societal transformation, this does not mean we run from being seen as a “trouble maker.” King, a model reformer, was very confrontational in his pursuit for justice. This is what is required to really follow through on what we have conviction about.
