Last night I had the privilege of speaking to a big group of teens who traveled up from Tulsa, Oklahoma to do some missions work here in Toronto. What a great encouragement it is to see those teens serving hard and sharing the gospel. (Hi, Emily’s mom!)

The Most Dangerous Countries for Women – The Big Picture has a heartbreaking photo gallery of the most dangerous countries for women.

Grow Up. Settle Down. – John MacArthur is penning a series of blog posts meant to speak to the Young, Restless, Reformed crowd. I’m really looking forward to this! “I have some words of encouragement and counsel for YRRs, and I want to take a few days here at the blog to write to them about their movement, its influences, some hazards that lie ahead, some tendencies to avoid, and some qualities to cultivate.”

Surprised by Suffering – At the Ligonier blog I’ve got a roundup of some great quotes from R.C. Sproul’s book Surprised by Suffering.

Shame – This was an interesting article to read as the author harshly skewers Calvin College for even considering that Adam and Eve could have been real people. Once again we see evidence that the historicity of Adam is one of the major battles facing the church in the twenty-first century.

  • Why Do I Feel Such Profound Loneliness?

    This week the blog is sponsored by Moody Publishers and is written by Steve DeWitt. The story of human loneliness has its roots in the character of God and God’s purpose in creating us.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created…

    Stop Swiping, Start Serving

    I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that in the past few weeks, you have probably not gotten rip-roaring drunk nor participated in a debauched drinking party. You have probably not given yourself over to rampant sexual immorality or a life obsessed with sensuality. At least, I hope not
