I just changed the name of this blog from “at the intersection” to “runwithendurance.”
As I mentioned in my first post, at the intersection is a limiting title. It assumes, that by identifying places when faith intersects with other issues, there are issues where faith is irrelevant. I do not believe that idea, nor do I want to promote it.
Run With Endurance comes from Hebrews 12:1-2 (ESV): “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”
This has been my favorite verse and phrase for about a decade now, and it seems fitting to use it at the title for this blog. I’m not to get everything right. I’m going to make mistakes. I’m going to the believe the wrong things. I’m going to hurt people-and so will you. But I’m going to keep running towards Jesus, and I want you to do the same.
