In this video, John Piper gives some excellent counsel for advocates of Blue Collar Theology.

First, get into a church that is a Word-saturated community.
Second, ask your pastor what the good books are and read them.
Third, don’t sell short the reading, meditating, and memorizing of Scripture.
Fourth, don’t be afraid to ask the relational question between text (Scripture) and context (culture).

May we all speak the Word of God with boldness, humility, clarity, and compassion.
