Remembering John Stott

Noted author and preacher John Stott died this week. A sentence in his obituary in the British newspaper Guardian caught my eye.
He insisted that Christians should engage in "double listening" – to the word of God, and to the world around them – and apply their biblical faith to all the pressing issues of contemporary culture.

This resonates with me -- I think we should be scrutinizing the details of what God has promised, we should also scrutinize the details of our circumstances, and seeking God's grace and wisdom for where the two are not consistent.
