A La Carte (7/28)

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. And although it gives parents and teachers many helpful tools, it emphasizes that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the ultimate firewall for our children.”

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.”

Love Where You Live – Collin Hansen writes for Christianity Today about how “Urban, suburban, and rural churches respond to new challenges in a less mobile era.”

The Elisha Foundation – I am excited by the work done by The Elisha Foundation as they minister to families with special needs children. This video shares some of what they do.
