A La Carte (3/5)

The Church in Canada – The Gospel Coalition is holding an event in Ontario. The Gospel Coalition has an interview with John Mahaffey, a member of the TGC council, on the state of the church in Canada.

Tornadoes – The home of the brother of Bobby Gilles (I have sometimes linked to his blog and music) was destroyed by one of those tornadoes and every member of his family injured. Bobby has the incredible details.

Fat, Sick and Dead – That’s what your desk job is doing to you–making you fat, sick and eventually dead.

Hidden in the Heart – This is a good and important article on hiding the Word in your heart and the difficulty that comes in this digital age.

Kirk Cameron and Piers Morgan – Kirk Cameron got himself into hot water by sharing his beliefs on the Piers Morgan show.

Strike Two – Another heartbreaking blog post from Africa. Reading blog posts like these makes me see how much I take for granted–things ilke a convenient, working health care system.

Tattoos for Lent – I’ve said it before: it’s impossible to lampoon Evangelicalism. “In a hip, artsy, area of Houston, a hip, artsy pastor is taking an unorthodox approach to Lent.Standing in front of his congregation at Ecclesia Church, a congregation he admits is different – more diverse, more urban – than many evangelical churches – Chris Seay encouraged them to do so something he said combines the ideas of sacrifice and devotion that mark the Lenten season, the 40-day lead up to Easter.”

Labor to keep the heart low in prosperity, and full of heavenly cheerfulness in adversity.

—Jeremiah Burroughs

  • Unite in Prayer with Persecuted Believers

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…

  • Tell Me

    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…
