A La Carte (10/20)

Open Doors – Here’s an update from Frontline Missions. “This is the calm before the whirlwind. A time to prepare to step through the long passage that will lead to eight countries in the next few weeks. In Ethiopia and along the banks of the White Nile, we will shoot the fifth episode of Dispatches from the Front.”

Holding Hands – “An Iowa couple who was married for 72 years died one hour apart last week in the hospital as they held hands.”

Amazonia – Some spectacular photos of the Amazon rainforest.

Lord, I Believe – A Free MP3. “Zac Hicks + Cherry Creek Worship has taken that old and largely forgotten hymn and given it new life on their album Without Our Aid.”

Airlines – This is exasperating. You kind of wish they’d just cut all the extra fees and instead just raise fares.

When the law of God is written on our hearts, our duty will be our delight.

—Matthew Henry

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…
