Rev. Dr. Ligon Duncan was asked by the Lt. Governor of Mississippi and the Speaker of the House for Mississippi to make a statement on the issue of whether the Mississippi flag ought to be changed or not. Rev. Dr. Duncan is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (the denomination in which I serve), the chancellor over Reformed Theological Seminary (the seminary from which I graduated), and the former Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Jackson, MS where he served for almost 18 years. His statement on this issue is sound, loving, and demonstrates good leadership. The truth it contains has application far beyond the borders of Mississippi.
A Statement on the Flag of Mississippi
In this post, I’m pleased to share my tiny little corner on the internet with guest reviewers, Jerry and Linda Mead. Jerry is a retired minister in the PCA, and he and Linda have three adult children, five grandchildren, and one additional grandchild who is currently preparing to make his arrival later this year. I offer their review of Larry McCall’s Grandparenting with Grace: Living the Gospel with the Next Generation here unedited and hope this resource can be useful for many of their peers.

Here’s the latest installment of my “13 Reasons” series over at my church’s website.
Here’s the 2nd installment from the church’s website:
Because the Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” is proving to be a dangerous and abiding presence in popular discussions, I’m trying my hand at a series that is related to it over at the website of the church where I serve. If you have an adolescent in the home, check out the first installment: http://www.meadowviewpca.org/13-reasons-good-reasons-live/
I thought this blog post “An Open Letter to Pastors: a non-mom speaks about Mother’s Day” was helpful at recognizing that Mother’s Day is much an occasion for mourning as honoring and celebrating. Interestingly enough, I referenced how difficult Mother’s Day can be for many people in my sermon yesterday on Psalm 77. However, the sermon deals more broadly with mourning/grieving/suffering in general.
