Du Jour: In a particularly interesting article, Phil Johnson answers the question of why the emerging conversation is going nowhere.

Blog: Aaron, who runs Theopedia (the Christian-focuses answer to Wikipedia), has begun a new blog at theopedia.wordpress.com/. “The Theopedia blog seeks to serve the church as a resource for theological study and discussion. This blog will host commentaries on current issues as well as short articles on theology, church history, biographies, etc. in hopes of informing and encouraging its readers. “

Announcement: Eric and Jenny Schumacher have announced the birth of Elijah Ames. Congratulations to the Schumacher family!

Sermon: Matt at What Else Floats blogged about the sermon John Piper preached upon returning from his lengthy sabbatical. “We just returned from worship at Bethlehem, all together on one site in the parking lot in Mounds View. Our pastor, John Piper, preached God’s Word to us for the first time in nearly 6 months after returning from his writing sabbatical in England.”

Photography: Carla snapped a great photo of a storm that was featured on the web site of a local news station.
