The In-Between

The In-Between—our blog at The Austin Stone, is a space for our leaders to unpack theology and what it means to live for the glory of God and the good of the world in our cultural context.

Why “The In-Between?”

We believe that there are times in which the veil between heaven and earth feels thinner—times when we can see heaven and earth converge in beautiful ways. And as believers, we want to faithfully live in those in-between places, seeing Christ’s prayer of His kingdom come and will done here on earth, just like in heaven (Matthew 6:9-13 ESV).

Our hope is that what you read here will spur you on to look to Jesus and His beauty for how to holistically engage the world with His good news.
