Beautiful Photographs, Beautiful Cause – JT highlights the work of David Sacks. “David has recently produced a beautiful coffee table book of photographs he has taken there. It’s called True Africa.

When Are We Going to Grow Up? – Here’s a long but interesting article on the juvenalization of American Christianity. It applies to Canada just as much.

Congregations and Ministers – I appreciated what Paul Levy has to say to both pastors and congregations in this article. It deals with the way a pastor is compensated for his work.

History is a story written by the finger of God.

—C.S. Lewis

    A Freak of Nature (and Nurture)
