32 Things About Spurgeon – “January 31, 2013 it will have been 121 years since the great preacher, Charles Haddon Spurgeon passed away. In memory of him I bring to you 32 things you might not know about Charles Spurgeon.” I love articles like these.

How Much Do I Need to Know? – Michael Horton looks at the question of “How much do I need to know in order to be saved?” and says it’s kind of like a dating couple asking “How far can we go?” It’s the wrong question.

Only Once in 30 Days – Thabiti Anyabwile resolved that he would be a more faithful evangelist, yet he has found that far more difficult than he had thought. This article is very honest, sharing both success and failure.

Dan and Me – Denny Burk dug up an article about a stereotype-wrecking friendship between Chick-Fil-A’s Dan Cathy and LGBT activist Shane Windmeyer.

Cut Off for 40 Years – In 1978, Soviet geologists prospecting in the wilds of Siberia discovered a family of six, lost in the taiga. Smithsonian has a long article about a fascinating little snippet of history.

    Stop Swiping, Start Serving

    I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that in the past few weeks, you have probably not gotten rip-roaring drunk nor participated in a debauched drinking party. You have probably not given yourself over to rampant sexual immorality or a life obsessed with sensuality. At least, I hope not
