Solomon’s Porch – My friend and pastor, Jeremy Mack, has launched a new blog. Check out his initial post on spiritual leadership.
Why I am/not a charismatic – This is a series I stumbled on at the Pen and Parchment blog. It is a conversation between two friends who live on opposite sides of this issue. Engaging discussion so far.
Free Audio Book – The month is almost over so don’t forget to get the free audio book from Christian audio. This month they are giving away The Millennials by Thom and Jess Rainer.
Father and Son – I stumbled across this link on Tim Challies blog. It is a really neat picture of a father and son who attended the first space shuttle launch and also the last one. They staged a picture at the last one to mimic a picture from the first one. It’s pretty cool.
Scriptures That Bother Me — 1 Cor. 6:19-20.
Solid post by Jim Thornber on being completely sold out to Jesus.
Christian Audio is offering R.C. Sproul’s classic “The Holiness of God” for free download for the month of March. You can get the download here.
It’s that time of year when everyone is making New Year’s Resolutions. The sermon at church yesterday was even about resolutions. My list this year consists of the normal stuff, diet, exercise more, no new debt, but I have also resolved to waste less time and try to be more Kingdom oriented. Here are few links about resolutions.
1.Here is a link to the yearly reading plan from Discipleship Journal.
I like this plan because it has you reading from sections in the Old and the New Testaments. It also only has 25 readings a month. This is helpful because you can miss several days a month and not be behind.
2. This is a post that contains 70 resolutions made by Johnathan Edwards when he was 19.
This is pretty impressive list. We all might do well to pick one or two of these to add to our list this year.
3. Here is post about resolutions from Pastor Brad Dunlap.
He is advocating simplicity.
4. The Barna Group has a new report out on resolutions.
So what are your New Year’s Resolutions?
Check out this post of Christmas Limericks at the Aliens and Strangers blog. Thought provoking and revelavant!
Check out this cool video about what the birth of Jesus would have been like in the Facebook age.
Came accoss this article by Kevin DeYoung about the risk of sacrificing holiness in order to not seem fundamentalist or too religious. His concern is that we may end up abandoning the real manadate of being conformed to the image of Christ in order to fit in. Well worth the read.
