The Full Picture – Christie Blatchford of the National Post asks, “… how is it possible that the critical element of the day known as 9/11 – that it was a deliberate attack by Islamic death stars upon civilians living in one of the most vibrant and diverse democracies in the world – and the single most important people, the city’s beloved firefighters, have been forgotten, or if not quite that, then elbowed aside, in modern parlance, marginalized? How can that possibly have happened?”

A Responsive Reading for 9/11 – From Ray Ortlund.

New York’s Post-9/11 Boom – John Starke writes, “Churches everywhere in the city saw new faces on September 16. Lots of them. One report shows that 40 percent of the evangelical churches in New York as of December 2010 started since 2000. Only an estimated 3 percent of New York’s residents attend an evangelical church. Still, that figure has tripled since 1990. During one two-month period in the fall of 2009 one new evangelical church opened its doors every Sunday. The aftermath of 9/11 was a growth spurt for evangelicals in America’s largest city.”

Reel Quick – Click here to read my review of Paul Greengrass’s United 93 – a powerful film that tells the story of the brave passengers and crew members who stopped the terrorists from carrying out their plans for the fourth hijacked plane on September 11, 2001. If you haven’t seen it, you should.

“A ‘god’ whose will is resisted, whose designs are frustrated, whose purpose is checkmated, possesses no title to Deity, and so far from being a fit object of worship, merits nought but contempt.” – A.W. Pink
