After a busy week and just prior to what is bound to be a busy Sunday, we are looking forward to a nice, quiet day at home. Tim Keller’s King’s Cross showed up in the mail yesterday and it looks like just the kind of thing I’d love to kick back and read on a Saturday afternoon. Beautiful.

Talk to Kids About Sermons – Joe Holland has a list of 8 tips for talking to your children about the sermon.

A Disturbing Trend – Unfettered Bloke (interesting blog name) writes about pastors and their ministry saying “Behind our responsibility to God, our responsibility to our family is our #1 priority above all else. If our family fails, everything else fails with it.”

Ask R.C. Live – Ligonier Ministries recently hosted another episode of “Ask R.C.” You can watch the video here.

Dead Island – This video gamer writes about a rather ugly trend in game design–more and more games involve destroying children.

How to Encourage Your Pastor – Thom Rainer has a good list of ways you can encourage your pastor.

Said Musa – Said Musa has been released (as you have probably heard by now). Praise God! And now let’s pray that he doesn’t immediately get thrown onto an international Christian stage because you know there are book offers already being sent his way!

Parenting Through Snow Days – Here’s some biblical advice on dealing with snow days.

A Sequence of Lines – On one hand this is about the most boring video you’ll ever see.

No man can give at once the impressions that he himself is clever and that Jesus Christ is mighty to save.

—James Denny
