A warm hello and belated Happy New Year to you!
While I haven’t been a good digital citizen of late, this year I hope to do a better job of keeping you updated on my work in articles and books that may be of interest. Today, I’m letting you know about two interesting articles from last week.
1) January 6
What happened on Jan. 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol? And who set the attack in motion?
Comments from dozens of Christian leaders and institutions show differing opinions and disagreement about the most basic facts, as you can see in this compilation article: “A Look Back: What Evangelical Leaders Said About Jan. 6 Attack.”
2) Colorado fires
Fires that started near Boulder, Colorado on Dec. 30 ravaged 1,000 homes and forced 35,000 people to flee. So far, it looks like the fire may have started on a property owned by Twelve Tribes, a religious group that survives from the Jesus Movement of the 1960s and 1970s.
Members live communally, like their role models in the book of Acts. They take Hebrew names, share everything in common, home school their children, and try to keep to themselves. But that may be more difficult now, as you can see in the article, “Twelve Tribes Group Denies Starting Devastating Colorado Fire.”
