Matthew Hosier: “Harry & Meghan represent a very modern shape of love though. She previously married, both from broken homes, both with previous romantic entanglements hiding in the background. There is a lot of complexity being brought into this marriage, as is the case for so many marriages. But the narrative is that love conquers all: the prince has found his princess, and (hopefully) they all live happily ever after.”
Equally timely today is this video showing some of the royal weddings that shaped European history.
This is an important warning from H.B. Charles Jr. “There are some convictions that define who we are. They shape our worldview and philosophy of ministry. We don’t hold these positions. They hold us! To deny what you believe would be sin.”
Sinclair Ferguson answers briefly.
We assume a lot about the Old Testament, but this article/video tells us how it came to be. “The Old Testament is thousands of years old, and contains accounts stretching back to the beginning of time. This ancient collection of books provides the foundation of both Judaism and Christianity. So where did it come from? How did these age-old traditions, stories, and commandments make their way to modern times? These are important questions.”
There have been many reviews of this book, but I rather enjoyed this new one from Tabletalk.
This is an extraordinarily beautiful video highlighting American landscapes. I have no idea what the narration is about, but sure enjoyed the images.
Where is God asking you to simply wait and trust? Where have you lost faith, or where is your faith wavering? Where is God slow to fulfill his promises to you, slow to answer prayer, slow to grant you the gift of understanding? Look right there and you may see displaced and then misplaced faith.
