I just finished watching "Collision"- a video of a "debate" between Christopher Hitchens, an anti-theist author, and Douglas Wilson, a Christian pastor.

I came away with a couple of things, and I think you should watch it.

1. Pastor Wilson is a gift from God to The Church. "Copiousness" is a word he uses to describe himself. That is true, true. I am thankful that God gives different gifts to the Church and that I do not have to be as sharp as he is to be of service to The King.

2. Hitchens states along the way that the reason he is intrigued with Wilson, even listens to him, is that he really believes what he says and he even lives it out. We can have all the answers to every question and it is still the power of the Gospel that wins heart, not our great debate. It is us living/walking the Gospel much more than talking the Gospel that wins hearts.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. God is SOO Good.

Collision is awesome!!! Sonja, it's here and over here you can get it with the book as well (which is excellent.

I'm so glad you liked it! Let's have a screening in your movie room. :) I also wanted to say that skh and I talked about how you, Chuck, are totally one of those people as well - one that really believes and is ready for action based on that belief.

And yes, I am very thankful for Wilson as well. And his entire clan of gospel embodying peeps.
