A La Carte (2/19)

Uncoolness, Tolerance, and Christ’s Bride the Church – I really enjoyed Randy Alcorn’s reflection on the uncoolness of the church. “A church is a gathering of people diverse in race, occupation, age and gender. When those who are already the same in these areas are united, it is not as great a testimony to Christ’s grace as when those who are very different are united in the same Lord.”

Piper GIFs – This is good, clean family fun.

Sail Away with Me – One of my favorite bloggers recently made an appearance on 60 Minutes. “The world’s largest civilian hospital ship travels the west African coast, restoring sight to thousands and bringing smiles to faces once disfigured by tumors. Scot Pelley reports.”

China’s House Churches – Christianity Today has an article describing how China plans to wipe out its growing number of house churches.

Rick Warren’s New Show – “Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., announced Tuesday that he will begin a radio show the first week of April.”

Like Elephants – The search engines are like elephants in that they never forget. (Note: There’s a rough word or two in the article.)

For God to explain a trial would be to destroy its purpose, calling forth simple faith and implicit obedience.

—Alfred Edersheim

    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.
