Topsy-turvy Theological Arts -- Sightings (Martin Marty)
When religion hits the news, it's usually focused on bad news -- a scandal of some sort. But with Christmas just behind us and the New Year right in front of us (tomorrow), Martin Marty shares some good news. The news concerns the actions of LaSalle Street Church in Chicago, which recently received a considerable sum of money, a portion of which was given to members ($500) each to use as they saw fit. They could keep it or use it to fund causes or projects of their choice, or even reverse the reverse and sign it back to the church. This unique act was highlighted in a Chicago Tribune article, and Martin Marty thought it worth sharing with us -- so take a read and remember that religion isn't completely evil!!
