"A Pulpit Minus the Politics"

Here's a great article from the Raleigh News and Observer on Stephen Davey's views on the role of church in culture and politics. Davey is the pastor of Colonial Baptist Church in Cary, NC. I understand that Davey is working on a book that details his views on this subject. I'll post more info on it as it becomes available.

In the meantime, here are some of Davey's key comments from the article:
"The mission, energy and investment of the church is not to clean up the evils of society. The mission of the church is to evangelize society."

"I believe the greatest danger facing the evangelical church is not the destruction of its values but the distraction of its focus."

"The investment of the church's time and energy is not to see that Christmas greetings are shared, but that Christ's gospel is shared."

I'm researching this topic for a few assignments this semester. Thanks for the link.
