Keeping Up with the Mondays – I have found great value in marking Sundays as a day set apart from the rest of the week. It was no surprise, then, that I enjoyed this article where Cap Stewart explains that the best way to beat a case of the Mondays is to enjoy a rest the day before.

Women of Grace – If you’re in the Toronto area, or know someone who is, you may be interested in knowing that my church is hosting a Women of Grace conference in April. It’s open to all women college-age and up and will feature Mary Kassian as the keynote speaker. It look like it will be a great event!

Logos 5 – Logos has just released the newest version of their Bible software. There are too many new features to list, so i’ll leave you to visit the site and check it out if that’s of interest to you.

  • Unite in Prayer with Persecuted Believers

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…

  • Tell Me

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
