The Best of September
I've been at this blogging thing for quite a long time now--it's coming up on ten years. I've been at the daily blogging thing for almost as long. This means that I've got an extensive backlist of articles from years gone by. I thought it might be fun to pull out some of the articles I wrote in previous months of September, stretching all the way back to 2004.
Honor, Respect & Taxes - It’s one thing to pay taxes; it’s another to respect the ones who levy them.
What I Hate About Blogging - I must have been having a bad day.
On Being a Dad - I love being a dad (most of the time).
The Truth About Canadian Health Care - Don’t let them tell you otherwise. We aren’t doing too badly up here.
On Visiting Saddleback Church - About the time I visited Saddleback and met Rick Warren.
Calvinism and Evangelism - What we are to do and what we are not to do in evangelism.
Who Shapes Your World? - It’s always a little disappointing to see who TIME chooses as the people who are shaping our world.
Spoilt for Choice - This was one of the seeds that eventually grew into The Next Story.
Bludgeoning with Providence - There is a way Christian leaders try to convince you they know God’s will for your life.
It Is Good to Thirst - Yes it is.
Planned Neglect - There isn’t room for everything, so you need to plan to neglect something.
The Enemy Next Door - This was an important one to me back when I wrote it.
The Infinite Value of Scripture - This is an old favorite. I think the metaphor made it into one of my books.
Worshipping the Seeker - There are quite a lot of articles like this one in the early days of my site; in those days I was at a seeker-sensitive church and just starting to understand what that meant.
