Pastors and Conducting Weddings – Brian Croft: “I am consistently asked about the circumstances surrounding weddings. What makes it permissible or not to conduct a wedding in “this or that” situation? I am very aware that there are strong opinions and lively disagreements about whether an evangelical pastor should marry Christians, non-Christians, and everything in between.”

Pastors Oppose Evolution – “Pastors overwhelmingly believe that God did not use evolution to create humans and think Adam and Eve were literal people, according to a recent survey by LifeWay Research.”

The Man with the Golden Voice – Here is an update on Ted Williams, the (formerly) homeless man with the golden voice.

High-Speed Animals – “With good lighting and a little luck, amateur videographers can use inexpensive digital cameras to transform blurred flight into breathtaking glimpses of animal behavior.” WIRED showcases some examples.

Ordo Salutis – That infographic of the ordo salutis has been translated into Portuguese and is free for the download.

Your Brain on Technology – Mike Wittmer read a bunch of books on technology (including my own) and provides 5 big takeaways.

The snow covers many a dunghill; so doth prosperity many a rotten heart.

—Thomas Brooks
