Forgetting the Reformation

On the 31st of October, 1517, a German monk, armed with ferocious conviction, righteous fury, and an ink well, sat down to pen a manifesto. The document, which according to historians was later that day tacked to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, was Martin Luther’s cry against the atrocities of the church […]

Missional Confessions from an Introverted College Student

The following is a blog penned by one of our young ladies who was moved by God through our mission to Philadelphia. I am including it here because I believe the content of this document and the spirit in which it was written will encourage and propel our church forward.  Aaron :::::::::: In 1918, Helen […]

Watch or Worship

Twice in my life I have joined a gym. The first occasion was a decade ago, at the behest of my new bride and a persistent trainer (who was a member at the church I pastored). The shiny equipment and promise of washboard abs drew me like a moth to a flame. A year long […]

Wounding the god of Comfort in the Burbs

Each fall impassioned football fanatics descend upon their couches or favorite pubs on Saturday afternoons, clutching an ice cold beverage, and sporting their team gear. For hours they are transfixed before the big screen, emotions and vocal volume rising and falling with each gut-wrenching snap. As the day wraps down, these warriors of fandom strip […]

Why Jude?

A couple weeks ago I watched aghast as Bernie Sanders made outlandish declarations about Christians in positions of political power. I was appalled, not by his disdain of orthodox Christendom (which was not surprising), but rather by the fact that Sanders champions “love,” “acceptance,” and “tolerance” yet his diatribe was laced with rank hypocrisy being […]

God Doesn’t Need You, Slacker

Last week I slunk into a chair, cappuccino in hand to chat with area pastors about lessons learned through church planting. As dialogue flowed, a common phrase I hear often uttered by my Reformed friends darted from the lips of several pastors: “God doesn’t need you.” Now I understand what my fellow clergymen were trying […]

Pause Before Praise

I cradled my 5-month old in the nook of my arm. My left knee bounced furiously up and down. My eyes darted from one door in the hospital waiting room to another. It was 10:57 AM. For weeks this date had been on the calendar. February 14, 2017: the day we would meet the man […]

Hide or Go Seek

Two Jehovah Witness gents knocked on the Currin door last Saturday morning. Baby Evie in tow, I strolled out our front door and began a conversation that I can with confidence say did not go well for them. That’s not because I’m some brilliant apologist, but rather because I had an unfair advantage – the […]

The Church is not you, it is we

“Hey Paul…I really know you think we should be in First Baptist Philippi tomorrow morning, but we have a chariot race we just gotta see…” Can you imagine how that conversation in the first century would have gone? Can you envision a recent or mature convert attempting to convince the apostle Paul, or Peter, or […]

Looking Up from a Hospital Room

The little ginger wrapped both hands around my phone, pulling it to my lap so that my eyes had to meet his. “Put your phone down, Daddy!” He exclaimed. “Watch Spurgeon!” We were just a couple days out from Evie’s heart surgery and I found myself swallowed up with projects and people vying for my […]
