The Blackbird Press

If you have enjoyed the previous article, or if, at least, it has made you think again about the troubling matter of human sexuality, it is time to me to introduce the publication where this text originates. It is called The Blackbird Press. Here is the description that can be found on their website:

The Blackbird Press is a counterculture magazine challenging the shallow, self-serving, intellectually bankrupt and otherwise lame Christian subculture in America. We believe faith is no excuse for ignorance, tackiness and thoughtless conformity.

We believe Christianity is a mind-renewing, flesh-mortifying undertaking. We reject watered-down, unbiblical, cheesy versions of our religion. We criticize the church because we are a part of it and are not afraid to make fun of ourselves for the sake of honesty and change.

We also believe abject cynicism has no place in the church. We hope by our vigilance to reveal Christ, who stands apart from the mockeries which infringe upon his name.

Whether you agree or not with the above, I think it is worth browsing through this site from time to time, for a ‘sacred destabilisation’.

May you be destabilised, in order to be restabilised in Christ, again and again!
