Church: Paul writes about the value of a local church where God is (isn’t it considered wrong to end a sentence in “is?” Oh wait, I just did it.). “I am proposing that there may come a point in a Christian’s life where it is obvious ‘the Lord has left the building’ and it is time to find out with whom He is meeting so you can be there.”

Conferences: Anthony Carter looked at the list of Reformed conferences I compiled and noticed something. “The missing element is the presence of Reformed African-American preachers at these conferences.”

Quotes: Tony Reinke, who seems to have quite a library, suggests ways of “keeping your quotes in order.”

    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.
