Just something...

I saw a bumper sticker today for a certain church in town that read "God is still in charge, and it is all important."

While I'm sure I there are significant differences in how I and this church interpret the words "in charge," I still hold to the belief that this world belongs to God and that God has the first and the last word concerning all its affairs. And no other statement describes how I want to live in this world than the phrase "...and it is all important."

I like to call this the "Calvinist impulse." It's a deep and meaningful part of the faith of millions of Christians who don't officially subscribe to the "Calvinist" brand.

I agree. I think it's impossible to have grown up Baptist in East Texas without having at least some of this "tug" going on inside us.
