A Call to Intentional Mothering
Carolyn McCulley writes about a series on Revive Our Hearts that sounds like it would be greatly encouraging to mothers. If features Holly Elliff. Holly: “Motherhood is the greatest tool I know for God to shape me and mold me and chisel me for eternity.”


The Hand of God
Silly name but astonishing beauty. “A ghostly blue cloud seems to form an outstretched thumb and fingers grasping a ball of fire. The amazing image was taken by NASA’s Chandra X-ray observatory, which is orbiting 580km above the Earth. “


Truth and Apologetics
Phil Johnson does a great job of answering one of those tough apologetic questions: “How do I defend the sacking of Canaan by the Israelites?” “”Because they were an abomination to God” is a perfectly valid response: It’s true, and it is, after all, the correct biblical answer to the question.”


Pray for NEXT
There will be a special prayer initiative this year for the NEXT conference in May. They will be having focused intercession before, during, and after the conference, asking for God to pour out his Spirit & give much fruit that endures. They are looking for volunteers to pray both on-site and off-site (anywhere in the world). Click the link above to learn more.

    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.
