Writing to Those Left Behind
Wired writes about a service that allows you to send emails to up to 62 of your friends (and protect important documents) in case of the rapture.


God Save Us From Obama
So says Doug Groothuis. “I encourage Christians to support John McCain any way they can. This is because the alternative is unthinkable: an inexperienced, pro-abortion, tax and spend, internationalist, racially confused (think of his church affiliation) extreme liberal who does not understand Islamic fascism or how to deal with it.

Books for Guys
Mohler continues his book recommendations, this time suggesting historical works for guys. My wishlist continues to grow!


The Life of Reilly
Here is an interesting story from ESPN the Magazine. Rick Reilly writes about his dad who was “an Irish tenor, a yarn spinner, a songwriter, a father of four, a crack golfer and a first-class drunk.”

    My Most Common Pastoral Counsel

    Among my responsibilities as an elder/pastor within a local church is meeting with people to offer counsel and guidance.
