A La Carte (12/21)

My book “The Next Story” has been reduced in price to $1.99 (Kindle edition). If you haven’t yet got a copy, this is your chance. Let me mention that quite a few people have written me to say, “I thought it was going to be kind of dry…but I actually found it helpful.” So don’t give up on it if you’ve assumed it’s only for technical people. I think there’s useful material there for all of us.

What might shock you is if I told you many Christian pastors struggle to pray for and with their wives. I’m not talking about praying with her and the family at meal time. I am talking about a pastor sitting down with his wife, with no kids or other distractions, looking her in the eyes, and asking how she is doing and how you can specifically pray for her.”

Stent Man - Mark Altrogge has put together a funny look at a recent medical procedure.

The Hobbit - Here is the first trailer for The Hobbit, coming our way a year from now.

What a man is on his knees before God, that he is—and nothing more. —Robert Murray M’Cheyne
