Weekend Links

I love to garden. Spring is coming and I’m looking forward to growing things and giving them away to my neighbors. With this post I am going to start sharing various images of gardens to help stimulate others of you who might want to start gardens as a way to bless your neighbors. The usual links are below, interesting articles across a broad swath of my reading this week that are interesting, helpful or challenging. As always, just because I read it and recommend it doesn’t mean I endorse it. Have a great weekend.

Better Engagement with Culture and Politics

The Reality that Awaits Women in Combat (As the nation moves in a radical new direction, here are some issues that need to be accounted for.)
Big “Opps” on Climate Change Figures and Calculations (Study out of Norway disputes most radical climate forecasts.)

Fear of Oath-ing in Washington (Kyle Becker—A very important and interesting video.)
The Battle for Marriage Begins in Illinois (We may not win, but we must fight for a traditional definition of marriage.)

Doing Ministry Better (I.e., a more God-glorifying way)

Modern Day Pauls? (Jim Wright—please, please pay attention to voices like this.)
A Message to the Organic Church Movement from and Outsider (Andrew Wehrheim—Picked up this article from Jim Wright. It’s another good one and worth your time whether you are inside or outside the organic church movement.)
How Do We Go About Gather a Crowd for the Gospel (Jim Elliff—Should we gather a crowd? Is gathering a crowd a good methodology? A good article by a trusted church planter and minister of the gospel.)
The Benefits of Journaling (Michael Hyatt—Always a good reminder to be reminded of what I have reminded others of for years. Do we ever not need to be reminded of good things?)
Don’t Let the Screen Strangle Your Soul (Kevin DeYoung—first of a two part article, both of which are worth your time and worth passing on to your friends.)

Better Doctrine
