A La Carte (2/3)

Massive Sanctification - I appreciated this article from Ed Welch. Sometimes massive sanctification can work itself out in just a small change of words or a small shift in attitude. He works this out in those times a husband is rejected by his wife, but it applies much more widely than that.

Histories and Fallacies - Carl Trueman’s book Histories and Fallacies is on sale at just $3.99 (Kindle format).

Learning Worship from Idolaters - This article is based on an interesting premise: that we can learn something about worship by studying idolaters. In this case, the author looks at the idolatry of the sports fanatic.

Valentine’s Day - This infographic displays Valentine’s Day by the numbers.

Dying Regrets - “A nurse has recorded the most common regrets of the dying, and among the top ones is ‘I wish I hadn’t worked so hard’. What would your biggest regret be if this was your last day of life?”

Herding the Elephants - If you haven’t kept up with The Elephant Room controversy but wanted to get oriented, this is the place to begin.

Fantastic Flying Books - Here is the Academy Award nominated short film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.

I find not one corruption of my vile heart is dead, though some seem now and then asleep. —John Newton
