Jean Williams over at the Matthias Media “Sola Panel” has a good post on seeing unanswered prayer as a gift from the Lord.
Joshua Harris explains why he will not encourage his congregation to use twitter during the services. He provides what I think is excellent, thoughtful advice on tweeting specifically as well as worship and cultural trends more generally (HT: Justin Taylor)
Biblical Preaching shares a little about how some Chinese pastors were trained to know and proclaim God’s word in a program called 66:33:1. This puts to shame much of my teaching from an excellent college and seminary. (HT: Unashamed Workman).
Although some of the images are cheesy, TruthCrossing has done a good job turning some very poignant comments from Dr Mohler’s convocation message, “The Year of Living Dangerously” into a good YouTube video. The comments can be appolied aby any Christian, but are especially targeted towards pastors – men, take heed! (Check out the entire message at SBTS’ resources site.)
For my fellow Southern Baptists out there (or those interested in the inner workings of the denomination), Tom Ascol has a good post on thinking through a disturbing announcement from our International Missions Board and a new movement calling for a Great Commission Resurgence.
And for a little humor into the weekend. This pic was taken by a friend of mine who lives in Niger, West Africa. Having been there twice to work with him, this doesn’t surprise me, but it does make me laugh!
