A La Carte (10/24)

5 Reasons God Calls Us to Wait - Paul David Tripp on some of the reasons that God may call us to wait. “In ministry you will be both called to wait and also find waiting personally and corporately difficult. So it is important to recognize that there are lots of good reasons why waiting is not merely inescapable but necessary and helpful. Here are a few of those reasons.”

Drones and Never-Ending War - “Today, our president said every soldier in Iraq is coming home, leading many to believe The War Is Over. Except it’s not. Getting humans out of there is great, but the fact is war today doesn’t need humans at all.” The implications of this are expansive.

The Holocaust - These photos from The Atlantic are almost too horrifying to take in.

Privatize the CBC - This probably applies only to Canadians. The author makes some great points.

Divas of Discernment - I’ll always be indebted to Phil Johnson for coining the phrase “Divas of Discernment.” Here he speaks to Todd Friel about “wall-building, biblical discernment, bad discernment ministries, shrill-and-sharp-tongued women who fancy themselves called to ministries of full-time criticism—and a few other interesting topics…”

Heart for Adoption - I enjoyed this little film which was played at the Together for Adoption conference.

Some persons on their dying beds just wake up in time to see their danger, but not toescape from it: they are carried right over the cataract of judgment and wrath. —Charles Spurgeon
