A La Carte (12/20)

The Media and the Massacre – Andy Crouch: “All that any of us who do not live in Newtown, Connecticut, truly needed to know—possibly more than we needed to know—appeared in a 12-word news alert on my phone Friday afternoon. Almost everything else, I believe, was a distraction from the only thing that we who are not first responders, pastors, or parents in that community needed to do at that moment: to pray, which is to say, to put ourselves at the mercy of God and hold those who harmed and those who were harmed before the mercy of God.”

Wheaton’s Victory – “A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. issued a partial but significant victory to Wheaton College and Belmont Abbey College in their lawsuit against the Obama administration’s contraception and abortion pill mandate.”

Mount Everest – You must have seen thousands of photographs of Everest. But there have been none like this one.

Clarifying Words on Wife Abuse – Several years ago, in an online Q&A, John Piper was asked about a wife’s submission in the face of a husband’s abuse. He revisited that question yesterday and offered some clarifications.

Books on the Most Best-Of Lists – This site went through a whole lot of “best books of 2012” lists and found the ones that appeared on the greatest number of those lists.

I Like Adoption – Be sure to watch this amazing little film.

Suffering is God’s surgery that leads to health when we respond by faith.

    A Deadly Foe of Spiritual Growth

    As we live out the Christian life and cooperate with the Holy Spirit through the precious means of grace, we face a number of foes, a number of enemies that mean to derail us from our pursuit of God. Of all those enemies, none may be more prevalent and none more deadly than complacency.
