Faithfulness in a Fractured World | Sermons & Resources

In addition to C.J.’s recent sermon series, Faithfulness in a Fractured World, below are resources that the pastors of SGCL commend to you. 



  • Bloodlines: Race, Cross, and the Christian (John Piper)
  • Every People and Nation: A Biblical Theology of Race (J. Daniel Hays)


Mission of the Church

  • What is the Mission of the Church? (Kevin DeYoung & Greg Gilbert) 

This book provides clarity on how the church is to view its mission in the world.

  • Loving the Way Jesus Loves (Phil Ryken) 

The highest call for Christians, in this or any other moment, is to love. This book is an inspiring, provoking reflection on Christian love as exhibited in 1 Corinthians 13.



This article introduces the discipline of “critical race theory” (CRT) and how it informs so much of our culture’s views on identity, race, sexuality, etc.

This four part series provides a more detailed treatment and critique of critical race theory.

This article succinctly traces the genealogy of CRT (esp examining “cultural Marxism,”) and at the end also offers some wise comments for Christians.
