A La Carte (12/21)

Tonight I’m off to a performance of Handel’s Messiah with Toronto Symphony Orchestra. I can hardly wait. A lot of people I know have already been and are saying great things about this year’s adaptation. Just twelve hours to go…

Last Minute Gifts - My good friend Becky is offering up a lifesaver for guys who are way behind on their shopping. Use the coupon code challies and you can get 10% off any of her last minute gift items. They are gifts that don’t require shipping, so they’re ready to go right away.

Amisadai & Louisa - Here’s a blog you may enjoy bookmarking for your kids. “We are Amisadai and Louisa Monger (age 6 and 4). We have moved to Tanzania in Africa - look at the map below to see if you can find it! We hope you will enjoy reading about our adventures and looking at our photos! Please don’t forget to send us a message too!”

Slave - David Steele offers up a review of John MacArthur’s new book Slave. “MacArthur hits the Christological target with this book.  With the skill of a theologian marksman, he exalts and magnifies Christ.  In the final analysis, Slave is a primer on Reformed theology and is written with humility and great erudition.  It should receive a wide reading for years to come and make a significant difference in the body of Christ.”

While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks - I enjoyed this little story that shows how technology changes the world in even subtle ways.

Blocking Porn - This is an interesting story coming out of England—how British internet service providers are going to have to block all porn sites unless a customer specifically requests them. I can’t imagine it will work too well (yet) but here’s hoping.

Ask R.C. - In case you missed the first-ever Ask R.C. Live Online, you can catch the recording. It’s probably not a bad idea to let Ligonier know that you want more of these!
