A La Carte (9/6)

Yesterday at dinner I asked the kids for their favorite summer memory. My son went with winning the baseball championship with his little league team. My 8-year-old daughter went with spending time with family in Georgia and Tenneesee. My 5-year-old daughter went with watching movies in the car on the way to Georgia and Tennessee. Sigh.

A Bible on the Moon – “The first lunar Bible traveled to Earth’s satellite on February 5, 1971, on board Apollo 14. Lunar Module Pilot Edgar D. Mitchell brought the Bible with him to honor Apollo 1 astronauts Ed White, Gus Grissom, and Roger Chaffee who died in a cabin fire during testing of the Apollo 1 vehicle. It had been a dream of White’s to bring a Bible to the moon’s surface. Mitchell turned that dream into a reality.”

Roots and Wings – This documentary on Indelible Grace looks really interesting. You can view a trailer here.

Grace To Muslims – This is pretty cool and definitely worth praying for: “Renowned preacher and author John MacArthur opened the four-day ‘Truth Matters’ conference Thursday evening by announcing that his evangelistic television program began satellite TV broadcasting to the entire Muslim world for the first time that afternoon.”

Four Deadly Food Disasters – “Hurricanes in the northeast are pretty rare and can leave people at a loss for how to prepare for extraordinarily severe conditions. At the very least, there are standard pieces of advice you can use to more or less muddle through a nasty situation. But perhaps even rarer are freak events involving food that cause a lot of damage. Those with an appetite for tragic tales might enjoy the following…”

Sermon Hymns I – This is an interesting presentation. “‘The Gospel of Jesus Christ’ is the first movement of a planned multi-movement composition entitled Sermon Hymns. This composition is a multimedia work for piano with electronic audio and video playback.” Be sure to give it a fair listen as it begins to really swell near the conclusion.

The smallest tract may be the stone in David’s sling. In the hands of Christ it may bring down a giant soul.

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.
