A La Carte (4/4)

The Importance of Letters - I know that I don’t write as many letters as I should (as in old-fashioned letters); this article from WORLD affirms what I already know! The author says that Christians—people of the written Word—should not lose the skill of writing letters.

How Eternity Shapes Our Mundane - “Parental amnesia is not just where you walk into a room and forget why you’re carrying the laundry basket with four dirty coffee mugs in it. That’s called normal. Parental amnesia is where we forget about two things: tomorrow and eternity.”

Consequentialism - I appreciate what Bob Glenn says in this article. He applies it specifically to Mark Driscoll but the application can certainly go far wider than that.

D&D @ T4G - If you’re heading to Together for the Gospel and are anxious for even more, you may want to check out this pre-conference event. There will be “a pre-conference dinner from Chuy’s Tex Mex, followed by a panel discussion on Christ-centered theology and ministry. Dialogue will feature Josh Harris, Carl Trueman, Matt Pinson, Jeff Bethke and J.D. Greear, hosted by Russell D. Moore.”

The Gospel of the Bible - A couple of years ago I spoke at a conference here in Toronto that has subsequently been turned into a book. IVP has just published my contribution online. (Other contributors to the book include Andy Crouch, Ron Sider, Shane Claiborne—rather an eclectic mix.)

Free Music - Page CXVI is giving away an album for Easter.

Dirt - A unique video for an interesting song.

I never preach a sermon without thinking that possibly the Lord may come before I preach another. —D.L. Moody
