When You Can’t Say “He” or “She” – I invariably enjoy Bill Mounce’s reflections on language and translation.

How to Find a Mentor – There is lots of sage counsel in this one from Russell Moore.

The Right Time to Tell My Darkest Secret – Joshua Rogers tells about the difficulty he had in revealing his darkest secret (which involves sexual victimization).

The Bible does not present an art of prayer; it presents the God of prayer.

—Edmund Clowney
