Here is sound wisdom from Ben Reaoch, pastor of Three Rivers Grace Church in downtown Pittsburgh, PA.
WORLD on The Shack
WORLD has an article about The Shack. An interesting quote: “Young is no longer a member of a church, nor are his publishing partners, both former pastors. They are a part of a movement that rejects the institutional church, but Young says he doesn’t feel any need to try to yank people out of systems or be negative about them. His hostility, though, shows up in The Shack…”
Why I Love the Church
And in a case of good timing, Pulpit Magazine is posting a series by John MacArthur on why he loves the church.
An Interesting Obit
Here’s an interesting obituary of a woman who refused to sell her house, even while the world around her was changing. “The Ballard woman who captured hearts and admirers around the world when she stubbornly turned down $1 million to sell her home to make way for a commercial development died Sunday of pancreatic cancer. She was 86.” (HT: Zach).
CT Interview with the Creator of WALL-E
CT interviews Andrew Stanton of Pixar about his Christian faith. They push and push, it seems to me, but don’t get a whole lot out of the guy!
Heinz Pushes Gay Marriage
