Some Good Thoughts from Carl Trueman on “Churchly Piety”

I’m linking these blogs by Carl Trueman for a couple of reasons. One, he’ll be our Family Camp speaker this summer. Two, he has something very important to say in these posts. And that is, the renewed interest in Reformed theology of recent years among evangelicals needs to find expression in what he calls a “churchly piety”. A churchly piety values – along with correct doctrine – the worship, teaching, and leadership of the institutional church.

Here’s a quote of particular interest to me, a OPC minister:

Further, the Lord has delivered me from the need to dress like a scruffy dropout, talking in embarrassingly fake street jargon to pretend that I can still connect with `the youth.’ I am, after all, an Orthodox Presbyterian minister. It is hard to imagine a less trendy or more culturally inept calling.

As Chevy Chase would say, “I resemble that remark”!

Here is the first post, and here is the second.
