A La Carte (6/29)

Where Are the Presses? - A little insider’s perspective from a major publisher: “When people visit InterVarsity Press, they often ask where the printing presses are. I show them our copiers—the closest thing we’ve got. Our books are printed all over the country and sometimes around the world—all on printing presses owned by others. Even the biggest publishers do not own printing presses. Why?”

Small is the Kingdom Big - Ed Stetzer: “Too many church leaders are like the teenage girl who thinks the beautiful actress she sees every day on TV is normal. It is a skewed view of reality. Actually, what’s normal (and very valuable) is small churches living on mission in their contexts, being about the business of the kingdom of God.”

Pastor Paul Martin - My friend Julian, who recently left Grace Fellowship Church to begin a church plant (and whose position at the church I have assumed) has penned a loving tribute to Paul Martin, the guy I get to work with every day. It’s worth the read.

Brave - The trailer for the next Pixar movie.

Yali Jubilee - I enjoyed this video, showing a jubilee held to mark the 50th anniversary of the gospel coming to the Yali people.
