The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you as you serve and worship him this weekend.

We Must Reclaim Friendship From the Bonds of Social Media

Chris has a strong article here about making sure that our friendships, whenever possible, transcend social media.

Ravi Zacharias Hid Hundreds of Pictures of Women, Abuse During Massages, and a Rape Allegation

As much as I hate to link to such an ugly story, it’s important that we fact the facts about Ravi Zacharias. Here CT extensively reports on what are now the undeniable facts. (See also Zacharias Ministry Acknowledges Founder’s Sexual Misconduct by WORLD.)

In the Wake of Ravi Zacharias’s Sexual Abuse of Women

—Theodore Cuyler
