Every year I put together a round-up of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that are of interest to Christians. So be sure to check in on Friday and over the weekend—already I’m getting wind of some pretty good deals.

Pagans in the Youth Group – Help! There are pagans in my youth group!

Terms of Service – This short graphic novel illustrates some concerns with today’s newest technologies. It comes from just one, biased perspective, of course, but offers lots of good food for thought.

Shepherd Press eBooks – For just a couple of days Westminster Books is offering all Shepherd Press ebooks at $1.99.

6 Joys and Perils of Full Time Ministry – There is some good stuff in this article by Josh Moody.

The Briefing – You may benefit from listening to this morning’s episode of Al Mohler’s “The Briefing” in which he discusses yesterday’s grand jury announcement. I look to him as a trustworthy guide and interpreter.

How to Buy Groceries – If you’re the shopper in your home, you may appreciate this guide to smart shopping at the supermarket.

Dear Mr. Anxious – Here’s a letter to the anxious Christian.

Spurgeon

Let us learn a lesson of humility from our Saviour; let us never court great titles nor proud degrees.

—C.H. Spurgeon
