On a lighter note, if you’re interested in how biology and genetics influence some of sports’ most dominant stars, check this out. Ok, that little pitch doesn’t make the article sound as interesting as it really is. How about this: Michael Phelps (swimmer) has size-14 feet and can lay flat on his back, stretch his […]
At various times over the past few years, my heart has burned to do pioneer missions—to break into an unreached people group in Papua New Guinea or Africa or South America (or anywhere else), learn the language, cross the culture, preach the Gospel, translate the Bible, plant a church, train leaders, and leave an indigenous […]
If you like to eat, or cook, or just like to see how God mirrors His glory and goodness in every little thing in the universe, read Hot Providence. It’s Doug Wilson’s foreword to the Christ Church cookbook (he’s the pastor). Cookbook introductions aren’t supposed to be so delightful, well-written, and of all things, theological. Then again, perhaps everything is […]
There wasn’t really a “Humility – Part 1″, but since my last post was about one of my recent lessons in humility and since I came across this humility-focused post by Tim Challies, I figured his could qualify as a “Part 2″ of sorts. It’s called “The Greatest Sinner I Know.” Don’t read it lazily. Tim writes: I am […]
My five-month-old nephew Jackson is here visiting us (with his mother, of course). As you might expect, he is amazingly cute. I am not often around children his age. I wish I were more. A natural sense of compassion grips your heart when you’re around children of Jackson’s age. Usually this compassion takes the form of goofy faces, unintelligible and […]
There’s a very inspiring post by Scott Zeller at FoolishBlog called “That One Who Should Live in My Time.” It’s very much worth taking the time to read.
You’ve gotta see Google Earth. It is genuinely amazing. And it’s free. Download it here. You can manually zoom in (from space) all the way to a real aerial view of TMC. Also, navigate your way over to the aerial view of Oak Manor / Cornerstone. Both buildings together make a pretty cool shape. A […]
Check out “A Word in Defense of British Cuisine” for a perspective that applies to a lot of life. It’s good to read people who think like this.
DISCLAIMER: This post may sound anti-internet or anti-blog or anti-blog-reading. It’s not. It’s pro-something. The blog scene is somethin’ fierce these days. I’m nothing short of amazed (and overwhelmed) by the sheer number of voices out there trumpeting everything under the sun. Good writers, in-depth research, valuable discussions, and perspectives as broad as the world […]
Found a thought-provoking dialogue on “Are Short-Term Missions Good Stewardship?” Let me know what you think.
If you want a good blog to keep up with, try http://www.theologica.blogspot.com. It belongs to Justin Taylor, who is the 28-year-old Director of Theology for DesiringGod ministries (Pastor John Piper). He calls his blog “Between Two Worlds: A Mix of Theology, Philosophy, Politics, and Culture.” It’s worthwhile for a number of reasons: Taylor updates it […]
Time to post again. I thought that my online writing would become relegated to a website, but it’s hard to get away from the type-and-click efficiency of the blog. It’s both convenient and dangerous. Two related blessings have gotten me thinking about convenience and its effect on the Christian life. Those two blessings are (1) recorded Christian […]
