What Does It Mean To Be Reformed

For decades, I've prayed, taught, and lectured about the need for an indigenous Reformed African American movement, believing that a Reformed approach to theology is comprehensive and has many of the cohesive elements that are able to carry the weight and freight of the African American experience in its past, present and future. 

On that wise, I'd like to introduce a young mind currently studying at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS.  Jemar Tisby is my friend, and one of the founders of the Reformed African American Network (RAAN).

RAAN is a newly developed online resource dedicated to helping to shape a movement of believing African Americans and those who share their concerns.  At RAAN, you'll find a network of people and resources "fueling modern reformation in the African American community and the multi-ethnic nation beyond."

I'm pleased to share Jemar's latest article, "What It Means To Be Reformed" from the RAAN website as he discusses the underpinnings of the Reformed faith, and what it means to be literally shaped for Christ's purposes and His glory.

Look for more from Jemar as a contributor in the coming weeks here at Prophets of Culture.  Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy his thoughts.

Thanks,
Carl
