A La Carte (3/25)

A La Carte Collection cover image

It’s looking like another great day in Orlando. It’s quite a conference Ligonier puts on and I’m enjoying it thoroughly. I’ve also enjoyed meeting quite a number of readers of this blog as well. And I suppose I’ll meet a few more when I do a book signing a bit later in the day. If you’re down here at the conference, drop by and say hi, won’t you?

Ligonier Conference – The Ligonier Ministries National Conference will be live streaming all day today. Speakers today include R.C. Sproul, Steve Lawson and John Piper. Tonight’s discussion between Piper and Sproul looks like it will be particularly interesting.

Must a Pastor Be Married? – The New York Times recently had an article accusting Christian churches of discriminating against non-married pastors. Here Al Mohler responds to the article and to his comments that were quoted in it.

Christian Book Awards – The ECPA has released its list of finalists for the 2011 Christian Book Awards.

Flash Mobs – Ed Stetzer’s blog has an interesting article about flash mobs (an Internet phenomenon).

Matrix – This is purely entertainment but is strangely intriguing.

A Surveillance Society – Computer World writes about all the data we leave behind us today and what companies are doing with it. “By looking at data over a period of years, corporations can know how you spend your time, where you work, and who you typically spend time with.” And that’s just the start.

We don’t really begin to love God until we love God for who he is.

—R.C. Sproul
