If you haven’t yet, and if you’re interested in reading a classic book together, be sure to check out the poll I posted yesterday. There are 2 to choose from, voting will close very soon, and it’s neck-in-neck. Click here to vote.

Transforming Neighborhoods by Transforming Schools – I really appreciate a lot of what this article says about the role of Christians in the public schools. Hey, even if you don’t send your children to public school, how about volunteering at one to keep the gospel there?

Hospitality and Small Children – Abigail offers up some great thoughts on being hospitable despite having small children. A lot of people give up hospitality because of their little ones; Abigail tells you why you shouldn’t do that.

Best Winter Moves – It’s been a while since I posted a baseball-related link. So I don’t feel guilty about this one, which describes the best moves of the off-season. The Blue Jays did well for themselves.

Spiritual Depression – Granted Ministries (think Paul Washer) has just released a nice new version of Martyn-Lloyd Jones’ classic Spiritual Depression. As a special bonus it includes a CD that contains the original sermons the book was based upon.

Rock of Ages – A free MP3 of a folky version of “Rock of Ages.” I like it.

Shallow Small Group – I’ve been to small groups like this one. (HT:Everyone)

Whoever brings an affliction, it is God who sends it.

    The Hands and Feet of the Bible

    The Bible has life and the Bible brings life because it has been spoken by God. The Bible’s life, its voice, its feet, and hands are the life, voice, feet, and hands of God extended toward his people. For that reason among others it is always worthy of our time, our attention, and our dedication.
