A La Carte (March 3)

friday

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you today.

Westminster Books has a popular devotional back in stock and on sale (as well as a “forgotten masterpiece” by Bavinck).

Pray for Kate Forbes

Carl Trueman: “The reaction of journalists and politicians to Forbes indicates that we are now in a world where identity politics is reaching a dangerously destabilizing point. If the terms of membership in society are as fluid and ever-changing as the design of the Pride flag, and if no dissent from such orthodoxy will be left unpunished, something deeply sinister is happening.”

What You Should Know About the ‘He Gets Us’ Campaign

Joe Carter explains the “He Gets Us” campaign in one of his famous FAQs.

Have I Failed My Children?

There are some valuable reflections on parenting in this article. “Gil and I laugh when we say that two of our four children make us believe we are totally experts at this parenting gig. If those two were our only kids, we’d give ourselves pats on the back for what a great job we are doing. We’d probably write a parenting book.”

Baseball and the Meaning of Life

Here’s a timely reflection on the world’s greatest sport.

Christian, There is Blood on Your Armor

“As for your battered armor, it is not a disgrace but an homage to your Lord. In all your conflicts, it never failed you. In all your injuries, it preserved your life even when your body failed because the kind of life it protects is similar to the battle in which it is engaged.”

Flashback: Books To Read As You Prepare for Easter

Easter will soon be upon us, and I know that many Christians will take the opportunity to specially reflect on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are extremely well-resourced when it comes to books on the subject and I thought I’d list a few recommendations here.

To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.

—C.S. Lewis

    When God Gives Us a Platform

    There are many ways we may respond to the sudden onrush of some new pain or the sudden onset of some fresh sorrow.
