Woven Together by God’s Word: Russell Moore on the Bible's Role in Forming Our Families—At Home and in the Church

Russell Moore is a man with big credentials, big responsibility, and a surprisingly big laugh. As president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (the public engagement arm of the Southern Baptist Convention), Moore is regularly asked to comment on issues spanning pro-life ethics, the church’s response to racism, all the tricky questions of modern-day sexuality, and the complex relationship between evangelicalism and American politics. God a hot-button topic you need addressed? Russell Moore is your guy. Yet for all the gravitas of his conversation, he’s no ivory-tower theologian; he’ll just as quickly laugh at a joke or tell an endearing story about his family.

Reading Philemon Between the Lines: A Closer Look at This Little Letter Reveals Its Big Implications

The more you dig into Philemon, the more unsettling it can become. Is Paul permitting slavery? Why doesn’t he outright tell Philemon to free Onesimus? For insights, on these questions, we turned to John Byron, an expert on Philemon and slavery in the Bible. He teaches New Testament at Ashland Theological Seminary and is the author of several books, including Slavery Metaphors in Early Judaism and Pauline Christianity, Recent Research on Paul and Slavery, and A Week in the Life of a Slave, which is an imaginative telling of the story of Onesimus and Philemon.

10 Ideas for Family Devotionals: From Comic Books to Catechism

We asked readers over social media—plus a few colleagues at Faithlife—to describe their family devotions and how they make the time meaningful and enjoyable. Based on the feedback, some readers seem to have the most attentive children alive, while others count doing anything a win. But they all agree about the bottom line: do what works. Forget perfection; just be consistent. What matters is that you are forming hearts and habits around God’s word—together as a family.
