T4G and TGC
Ligon Duncan is taking a couple of blog posts to explain the differences between Together for the Gospel (registration for 2010 opens in a day or two!) and The Gospel Coalition.


Twitter Retention
“We’re hearing some pretty amazing statistics about Twitter (Twitter reviews) these days: growth from February 2008 to February 2009 was reportedly 1382%, with the incline increasing yet further in recent months. But like many social networks, it seems many people lose steam with the service. Stat tracking firm Nielsen reports today that a full 60% of users who sign up fail to return the following month.”


Just Put a Ring on It
Carolyn McCulley looks to a pro-marriage article in The Washington Post. “It’s a piece about trends, so please don’t be tempted to despair if you (or someone you love) are no longer twenty-something and still hoping for marriage. I posted this because I think it’s good that we as a society rethink the value of marriage and reconsider the benefits of this God-ordained institution.”


Pastor and Scholar Media
All the audio and video from The Pastor As Scholar and the Scholar As Pastor (featuring D.A. Carson and John Piper) is now available.


Sexual Intimacy and the Rights Over a Spouse’s Body
John Piper looks to 1 Corinthians 7:3-5 and offers some wise application. “What is paradoxical and delicate about this text is that logically it doesn’t work. What it does is call the couple to a profound effort to please the other without settling who will wind up getting the most pleasure, especially because each person will get pleasure in not asking the other to do what the other finds unpleasurable.”
