A La Carte (8/19)
A Word to the Conscience - Carl Trueman: “This increasing awareness has led me to a place where I thought I would never come: I have become more and more enamoured over the years with a modest amount of formal liturgical structure to worship services. Of course, everyone has liturgy, the same as everyone has tradition. The only differences are whether one acknowledges the fact or not, and how formally structured such is”
Why, O God? - Randy Alcorn has a book recommendation. “There's something in this book for everyone--whether you're looking for biblical perspective on suffering, insights on how to serve those who suffer, hands-on guidance in establishing a disability ministry in your church, or how to deal with the ethical questions in end-of-life issues.”
7 Billion - “The world population will reach seven billion later this year, with increases in the number of people in Africa off-setting birth rate drops elsewhere, according to a new French study published Thursday.”
Too Late - “It keeps happening: a controversial new book comes out, and we start scrambling to respond. It’s like playing whack-a-mole: we’re always hitting at the latest heresy. Yes, it’s important to whack moles, but is there a better way?”
Half-Aborted - Articles like this are the reason I believe abortion will eventually become taboo in our society. The immorality of abortion is just too apparent and sooner or later people will have to come to terms with the reality of what it is.
HOPE Week - Just try not to get weepy as you watch this.
