Publishers WinChristian Retailing rounds up a few of the Love Wins responses that are already in the works.

Bulletin Bloopers – Thom Rainer collects bulletin bloopers and in this blog post he shares a few of his all-time favorites. Example: “The pastor would appreciate it if the ladies of the congregation would lend him their electric girdles for the pancake breakfast next Sunday morning.”

Gospel Seeds in Uganda – Matt Schmucker reports on an amazing experience he had in Uganda.

The Creation-Evolution Debate – C. Michael Patton has a brief but helpful round-up of the different views of the origins of the world.
