Television: If you’ve never watched that hour-long program about the Duggar family (the Christian family from Arkansas with 16 children), and if you’ve been wanting to do so, it appears that it will be playing tonight at 8 PM on TLC. It’s worth an hour of your time.
Books: Justin Taylor says that Wayne Grudem is getting things done, following the advice of a book by that name. Maybe it’s one that is worth reading. Then again, it’s not like I’m hurting for reading material!
Theology: Mark Dever asks if evangelists should question professions of faith. “Sometimes I get the feeling that people think there’s something wrong with questioning the reality of a profession of faith. It’s legalistic, or judging, or holier than thou. Or something.”
Church: There’s an article at “Christianity Today” describing the way Willow Creek moves people into its small group ministry. “The key is to let the group leader make the decision about whom to invite into the small group. If people like one another, they’ll stick together. But if they don’t, you can have great curriculum and leaders, but the small group won’t work.” Doesn’t strike me as a very charitable method.
Personal: After feeling under the weather for some of the weekend, I’m feeling better for now, at least. But with temperatures soaring today, it may not last. It seems that I am unaccustomed to this ridiculous heat!
