Weekend A La Carte (2/18)

Treasure In, Treasure Out - R.C. Sproul Jr reflects on how his wife beautified his home and his life. “My beautiful wife loved nothing more than to beautify. She devoted herself to creating a beautiful home. She planted flowers, bushes and trees outside. Inside she hung, placed, painted and etched. Even when she was not well, this was where her heart was.”

Announcement Time - There are some good things to think about here: “I have an announcement to make: I love announcement time. Really, I do! I wouldn’t want to worship without it. But I know so many church leaders who treat announcement time as a waste of time, a necessary evil.”

Nuking Your House - This is all kinds of bizarre, but kind of interesting too.

Punctuating the Bible - Yet another reason that I’m glad that I’m not the guy in charge of translating the Bible…and another reason that I’m grateful that there are people who do such a good job of it for us.

Welcome to Earth - Here’s a roundup of some of the best and most popular time-lapse videos.

A lie is a snowball. The longer it is rolled on the ground, the larger it becomes. —Martin Luther
