Weighing in on faith and life.
B.H. Carroll faculty members, students, and those who support its mission desire to create dialog and stoke critical thinking about important topics which relate to faith and life in this world. Below are posts from diverse authors, whose views contribute to the ongoing discussion of these areas. The positions of the authors are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of B.H. Carroll Theological Institute, its faculty, and its governors.
In this, his final blog in the series “Theology in a New Key,” Dr. Wade Berry writes of trusting Christ in the darkness of night (a metaphor for life’s dark valleys). It is a lesson reinforced by City Alight’s “The Night Song.”

How can we make sure the Church is the safe space and gospel community many expect and hope for it to be?
So many people in this world are just like me. They feel cut off from their Creator. They feel hated by the only One who can save them.
