A La Carte (8/15)

4 Kinds of People - According to Tim Keller, there are four kinds of people in the world. Read the article to find out who they are and what they believe.

Lonely Me - “I am lonely. Any echo in your own heart, or is it just me? Those who know me casually might be surprised to see such a confession. After all, I am a pastor leading a bustling church, and my life is a swirl of people and relationships. On any given night, there are hundreds of homes I could call or stop by for a warm welcome. I am living proof that you can be lonely in a crowd.”

Sola 2011 - I’m really excited to see this conference coming to Quebec. “November 17 to 19, 2011, hundreds of Christians from evangelical Churches and youth groups all over Quebec will be meeting at the Palais des congres de Montreal to declare the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and strengthen their foundations in this glorious message.”

WW2 in Photos - This excellent photo retrospective continues.

Earth Landscapes - On a cheerier note, here are some beautiful landscape shots.

Only One Right Person - Joshua Harris on a day we all look forward to: “Everybody else in heaven will be wrong in a million different ways about a million different things. The Bible tells us that only those who trusted in Jesus Christ, who turned from sin and believed in him, will be in God’s presence. But on a host of secondary matters, we’ll all discover how much we got wrong.”

There is nothing worth living for, unless it is worth dying for.  —Elizabeth Elliott
