Blog action. This is finally live. Many thanks to the friends who have gone against their better judgment and encouraged me to write. Also, kudos to Pete Bentley for his design and John Moss for technical wizardry.
If you turned the world upside down and shook it, what would come out? How much change, assorted papers, gum wrappers, licenses to operate heavy machinery and other knacks would trickle down? I’m not sure, but I’m keeping an eye out.
This blog is titled from that row in Thessalonica when the Christians were said to have “turned the world upside down…. saying there is another king, Jesus” (Acts 17:6-7). Obviously they didn’t invert things in the way their accusers said, but in a more profound way, the things that existed were shaken so that the things that could not would remain. This place where the meek inherit the planet, the mighty are brought low, the first will be last and countless other wild aspects of the gospel make everyone paying attention double-take in astonishment is my subject. Your comments are welcome.
