An Unclean Theology – A great reminder by Eric Rauch about looking out for opportunities to serve: “Part of being ‘salt and light’ is taking dominion of this world and making it a little better for those who come after us. We often completely over-engineer the ‘loving our neighbor’ commandment. For many Christians, our interaction with the world outside the four walls of the church is all or nothing. We’ll take weeks to organize a food-drive or a spaghetti dinner, but in the meantime overlook hundreds of smaller ‘ministry opportunities’ because it doesn’t fit our schedule or our expectations.”
Crown of Glory – Since I’m currently reading through Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, this quote by J.C. Ryle really resonated with me.
Mass Ascension – I’ve had the privilege of attending the annual balloon fiesta here in NM, and this is one of the best, most vibrant descriptions of that colorful event that I have ever read.
Aiming High, Missing Low, Aiming High Again – A wonderful post by Tony Reinke at Sovereign Grace Minstries. “If January is the month to set new goals and resolutions for the New Year, February is the month to desert resolutions, like the abandoned cars on D.C. side streets packed tightly under the snow tossed from city plows.”
How To Write A Sentence – Hmmm. Another book to read. Cool.
Real Money for Virtual Smurfberries – Funny… and not so funny. Actually, it’s kinda scary, too. “Over the winter break from school, 8-year-old Madison worked to dress up her simple mushroom home on the iPhone game Smurfs’ Village. In doing so, she also amassed a $1,400 bill from Apple.”
Rick Warren’s Red Herring – Ponderings at Patmos addresses a recent sermon by Warren that is “fishy” to say the least. *sniff sniff* I think I smell a fallacy…
Don’ You Go Rounin’ Roun to Re Ro – Need a laugh? Then check this out. It’s hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. (HT Dan Phillips)
First Taste – Gotta love it.
“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.” ~ C.S. Lewis
