Theology: Justin Taylor has compiled a list of an excellent series written by Thabiti Anyabwile (no, I don’t know how to pronounce it either and no, my spell checker doesn’t recognize it) entitled “Things I Learned While at Capitol Hill Baptist Church.”

Church: Meanwhile, in another corner of the blogosphere, Jollyblogger is compiling links dealing with the feminization of the church. And, as a bonus, he is offering some of his own comments.

Bible: Rick has been reading the works of F.F. Bruce and has posted a brief meditation on Paul, Apostle of Privilege. “I don’t know if a comparison to even someone like John F. Kennedy does justice to the elite status Paul was born into and spent his entire life in.”

Weird: My sister-in-law and I have been attempting to coin a word to describe the orange residue that accumulates on the fingers of a person eating cheesies (or cheese doodles as I believe you know them in the States).

    The Night Is Far Gone

    There are few things in life more shameful than sleeping when you ought to be working, or slacking off when you ought to be diligent. When your calling is to be active, it is inappropriate and even sinful to remain passive. This is especially true when it comes to contexts that are of the highest…
