A La Carte (6/7)

Love Letters - Basketball coach John Wooden died last Friday. You’ll want to watch this short video about his enduring love for his wife. (HT:JT)

Right Teaching, Real Woman - My friend Julian preached a fantastic message yesterday on one of the most difficult passages in the New Testament. If you’ve ever wondered about those verses in 1 Timothy 2 that command a woman to learn in silence and which talk about her being saved through child bearing, you’ll want to listen in.

Free Scripture Song - Here’s a free song from Mark Altrogge.

The Most Widely-Read Magazine in the World - Did you know that Watchtower is the most-read magazine in the world (or at least the most-distributed). The New York Review of Magazines has an interesting article about it. “Every month, nearly 40 million copies of The Watchtower are printed in more than 180 languages and sent to 236 countries. There are no subscriptions and you won’t find it on newsstands, but it’s still hard to miss. Thanks to the efforts of Witnesses like the Tavolaccis, The Watchtower is the most widely distributed magazine in the world, with a circulation of more than 25 million.”
