Mahaney and Harris Leave TGC – In the wake of the conviction of a child molester at Covenant Life Church, both Joshua Harris and C.J. Mahaney have resigned from The Gospel Coalition. (CT also has the story.)

Motherhood and the Abortion Culture – I think there is more to the story than this, but certainly not less.

8 Ways to Comfort the Suffering – Articles like this are so important because I need to be reminded of these things again and again.

Where People Run – This isn’t going to save or change your life, but it’s still kind of interesting to see where people run in various cities.

God uses men who are weak and feeble enough to lean on him.
