A La Carte (11/28)


All I Have Is Christ - Desiring God is hosting a free download of the song “All I Have Is Christ.” The recording comes from the most recent Together for the Gospel conference.

Edwarda O’Bara - This is an amazing story: “A woman who lived in a coma for 42 years, meticulously cared for by her family, died Wednesday in her home in Miami Gardens, Fla., the Miami Herald reported.” It is a real testimony to love and loyalty.

Re-Evangelizing New England - Slate looks at how church-planting and music festivals are bringing about a quiet revival in New England.

A Visible, Exemplary Life - “As I mentor and coach leaders in North American churches, I find a common theme among many pastors: They live and lead in such a way so as to disqualify themselves as an elder in their own church.” Ouch.

The Rage of the Flesh - Ray Ortlund says it well: “Sir, if you abuse your wife or daughter or girlfriend, physically or verbally, you are more than a bully.  You are the enemy of God.”

Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth. —A.W. Tozer
