The Ministry Is a Gospel Issue – Michael Horton offers some helpful thoughts about the important of the ministry.

Dying to Disciple – Mez lays down the challenge: “Many believers here think that I have some secret gift for getting people want to hang out with me on the scheme. But I don’t. I just pursue people. I am constantly, intentionally alert and sensitive to any and all opportunities that present themselves.”

Olympic Timekeeping – The Olympics have come and gone; here’s an article about how they manage to make the timekeeping so precise.

40 Years of Cellphone – Here’s a brief history of the cellphone. How many of these did you own?

Marriage and Friendship – Justin Taylor links to David Powlison speaking about making your marriage a better friendship.

Against Christian Hypocrisy – Kirsten Powers and Jonathan Merritt collaborated on an awful article about Christians who refuse to provide goods and services for gay weddings. This article brings a much better perspective. Russell Moore responds as well, since they quoted (and misquoted) him.
