In just a few minutes I’m going to head to Toronto Pastors Fellowship, where several local pastors will be discussing the pastor and prayer. Sounds both interesting and informative.

In His Own Words – Dr. Mohler lets President Obama describe his own position on abortion. “When Barack Obama was running for President, he was described by some observers as one of the most radical candidates in the nation’s history, in terms of support for abortion. Once in office, President Obama has done little to dispel that judgment.”

Wait for God – Mark Altrogge on why it’s good to wait on God.

Give Us Men – I enjoyed this article written by my friend Ian. He writes about defending his complementarian beliefs and finding surprise in those who share such beliefs.

Cyber Skepticism – I know I’ve posted quite a few articles like this one recently; I continue to do so because I find them quite fascinating.

Memoirs & Remains – DG and Logos has partnered to offer you a free copy of Memoirs and Remains of the Rev. Robert Murray McCheyne.

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood.
