Glory and Grace: A Father & Son Joint
This pretty much describes me: Christ-follower. Husband to Melody. Dad to Noah. Elder/pastor at New Covenant Church. Graduate of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and LSU (twice). #Puritan fanboy. Student of the Bible. Lover of books, theology and technology. I am broken in many ways but whole and happy in Christ. In Glory and Grace, I speak for myself and not for my church or anyone else. Don't assume I agree with or endorse all the content from others which might be shared here. From time to time, content which is contrary to Christianity will be shared for informational purposes only. If I sharply disagree, it will be obvious. As Christians, let's be well-informed and engage the culture in the marketplace of ideas in ways that are at once gracious, God-exalting, loving and uncompromising. As ambassadors of Christ, God's glory is our aim and grace is our song. Join the conversation. - Todd Whirley
What's up, everyone? I like staying short, sweet, and to the point, so here’s what you need to know about me: I graduated from LSU in May 2018 with amajor in Sports Administration and a minor in Religious Studies. Currently, I am doing an internship at the Baptist Collegiate Ministry at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. In October 2014, through much prayer and study of the scriptures, I felt God's call on my life to go into vocational ministry working with students and/or worship ministries. After I complete my internship at the BCM, I hope and plan to attend seminary at one of the major Southern Baptist seminaries. While at LSU, I served at New Covenant Church as the Student Ministry intern and loved every second of it (even the tough times). My posts on here are my words and convey my beliefs, not my church's or my father's (while they may agree with what I say). My hope in each post is to make myself as well as those of you who read my post think critically about the topic. Christ has called us to love one another, so each post is written in love and in the hope that we see the goodness of the living God through what may be some difficult or unpopular topics.
