11 Things Thabiti’s Thinking – Thabiti Anyabwile (can we agree that, like Price and Madonna, we can just refer to him by only his first name?) shares 11 things he’s thinking about the whole Elephant Room controversy. You may also enjoy Carson’s and Keller’s take. I think we’re all growing a little weary of this issue, but it’s an important one as it highlights some real fault lines within evangelicalism today.

Tattoos – I appreciate Clint Archer’s take on tattoos and hermeneutics. “This is not a pointed tirade against tattoos, nor a defense of them; it’s a jab at bad hermeneutics. I have found that some like to decorate their arguments with Bible verses that have no place in the debate.”

JOB – In case you aren’t a weekend reader of the site, be sure to check out these amazing wallpapers Chris Koelle designed.

Reality Snapshot of Missions Teams – Here’s an interesting Q&A with a missionary on whether or not he finds short-terms missions teams to be helpful in his ministry.

A Pastor’s Final Words – This is something for pastors to think about: “Pastors, if you had one last word to give your congregation before you died, what would it be? Most congregations do not get that final word, but Dayspring Fellowship was given such a gift.”

I am walking toward a bright light and the nearer I get the brighter it is.

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
