God’s Technology – David Murray has just released a video and study guide titled God’s Technology. ” God’s Technology is ideal for families, schools, and churches that want to help their children to use God’s good gift of technology in a God-glorifying way.

Watch the Rising Day – Matthew Smith is now accepting pre-orders for Watch the Rising Day, his latest album of old hymns set to new music. At the site you can stream the whole album to give it a listen. And if you decide to buy it, you’ll receive an immediate download of the MP3 version. You can get 25% off the CD with the code “challiesblog” or 10% off the vinyl with the code “challiesvinyl.”
