NeuYear Calendars – Over at Facebook I am giving away 10 of those awesome NeuYear calendars. These are academic year calendars designed specifically for students.

Sing to the Lord a Simple Song – There is something to be said for this (though I wish the author had given a few examples). I believe there is a place for simple songs, like “The Gospel Song.”

Theological Fitness – The theme of this week’s deals at Westminster Books is theological growth and health (for women in particular).

Indelible Grace – Indelible Grace is touring this fall and may be coming to a city near you. Unfortunately they aren’t coming to Toronto…

How a Film Projector Works – I found this downright fascinating. “Bill Hammack tears apart a film projector to reveal the amazing mechanisms used in the pre-digital age to trick the mind into seeing a moving image.”

Catching Sleep and Catching Revival – John Starke has a helpful reflection on revival. “Smith uses the analogy of sleep to help us think about rhythms of discipleship, but what if the dynamic of sleep is the same for spiritual awakening in our churches?”

Wilson

  • Tell Me

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
