Theology: Agape Press discusses the PCUSA proposal regarding renaming the members of the Trinity. One pastor says, “You might as well put in Huey, Dewey, and Louie.”

People: I assume most people who read my blog also read Justin Taylor’s. But hey, if you don’t, be sure to read a couple of anecdotes he collected this week while hanging out with J.I. Packer. Packer also has some tips for prospective writers.

Reviews: I just did my weekly update of Discerning Reader. While several of the new reviews have already been posted on this site, there are also several written by other authors.

Life: Our next door neighbors, who only just recently moved in and we are really beginning to enjoy, are being featured in the near future in a program called Walls of Hope.

At the same time as this diagnosis was made, the youngest and oldest sons…were also diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome. Testing also confirmed…that [the] boys also suffered from Celiac Disease.”

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.
