Does He Need to Confess Adultery? – I appreciate Russell Moore’s answer to this difficult question: Does a man who had a brief affair several years ago need to confess it to his wife?

Cheap at Sea, Pricey on the Plate – Most weekends I enjoy reading a few longform articles. This one from The Globe and Mail was quite interesting as it simply follows a lobster from the sea (where it’s cheap) to the plate (where it’s expensive).

Arminianism FAQ – Roger Olson is probably the foremost champion of Arminianism today. He has put together a helpful FAQ that answers common questions about Arminianism. Start at that link and navigate to parts 2 and following. (I remain a Calvinist, but am glad to have firm answers to these questions.)

Open Letter to Gospel-Centered Preachers – Nick has an open letter to gospel-centered preachers. What he says is worth considering.

The Wonder of the Word – Matt Boswell considers the wonder of the Word in corporate worship.

Working Out Before Work – Here, from QZ, is a complete guide to working out before work.

  • Unite in Prayer with Persecuted Believers
