A La Carte (2/27)

The Santorum Predicament - I enjoyed Dr. Mohler’s take on The Santorum Predicament. “Rick Santorum is still a long shot for the Republican nomination, but his candidacy and its coverage in the mainstream media tell us a great deal about the fate of conservative candidates and conservative convictions in the public square.”

Bethlehem Succession Plan - It’s interesting to read about Bethlehem Baptist Church’s succession plan for John Piper. It is an unusual process to have to go through—to seek to replace a preacher like John Piper (who intends to step down from his preaching role in the summer of 2014).

Praying During Sermon Prep - Here’s one for the pastor: a guide on how to pray during sermon preparation. It can also help the non-preacher know how to pray for the guy preparing the sermon!

And While Preparing to Lead Worship - Inspired by the previous article, Matt Boswell has come up with a list of 8 ways to pray while preparing to serve as a worship leader.

Evaluating Movies - There is no one way to evaluate movies that will always filter the good from the bad, so I’m always interested in hearing how others go about it. Here is Randy Alcorn’s take.
