Early this morning I posted my Final Phase article to Forthright Magazine: “The opportunities of life and time, and why we don’t pursue them.” Among other things, I said: Continue reading
DST removed an hour from our sleep last night, so be aware that you in American Central Time are now four hours behind us. (Oops, that is, after you go off DST there.) If it’s 9 am here, it’s 5 am there. Please don’t call me at 10 pm your time. Continue reading
Good morning ’tis already, with three items out there, floating in virtual space for your reading pleasure:
- New Corollaries segment on TFR, yeah! How to start the new year.
- New prayer on BelievingPrayer.com. All threads to weave.
- Tongue in cheek on Christian-poets.com. My Habit.
Likely a fourth to come, keep your eyes peeled.
Seven times in eight verses the author of Psalm 121 uses some form of the word “protect.” What’s he trying to tell us?
Click here for the answer: “He’s knockin’ on our noggin”
This could have well been a devotional thought for here, but I decided to post it on TFR. Just because.
Read my latest Corollaries segment on The Fellowship Room, Things that Never Seem to Get Old in Life, and Some that Do. I’ll likely be off the Internet for a few days, with only occasional access, so you can savor this while I’m gone.
Headed in a bit to Alabama, then tomorrow to Mississippi, to visit the mother-in-law, and report Sunday to the Iuka church. Come join us there!
The authors group on FB has been growing slowly but surely, seems to be taking off now. It’s a place to find out what’s being published in the brotherhood. Worth your while if you’re on FB. The UPLift group is another growing one—why can’t people just sign up to my site or list? (I created the UPLift logo all by my lonesome, one of the coolest visuals I’ve ever done. Whatcha think of it?) Continue reading
Check out the GoSpeak site for three items about the northeast lectureship this next weekend. (One is a prayer request, yes?) Vicki and I depart tomorrow. I’ll teach two classes on the NT church and preach on “Constant Growth.”
A few folk look down in the mouth today. Understandable. Here are some pick-me-ups to brighten your day.
- I put on the prophet’s robe, in The Fellowship Room, with “What to make of the election.”
- A listener honors Jane McWhorter in her last ladies-day speech.
- Barry Newton fine-tunes what we know about salvation.
- Weylan Deaver sounded a pre-election reminder, “Whatever happens in the election…“
If none of this tickles your fancy, surely among the tons of good writing and speaking on The Christian Hub you’ll find something. Shortly, also, I plan to have something up on Believing Prayer, but there’s already plenty of petitions there you’ve not read. I know, I’ve seen the stats. So go there now.
Oh, and I have another short item on the Gospel Progress site about foreign aid. But you wouldn’t be interested in that.
