Growing Older – Randy Alcorn writes about different perspectives on age and aging.

Single vs Married Pastors – Steve Dewitt was a single pastor for quite a long time before marrying. In this article at TGC he writes about the advantages of each. “I am happy to be married.

As a man who now has lived in both worlds, I would urge churches and search committees to evaluate men for pastoral ministry based on their character, gifts, and maturity, not on their marital status.”

The Missing Jet – This special feature at the Washington Post tries to show the scale of what’s involved in finding Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.

    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…
