Better Worship; Better Preaching; Better Science; Better Theology; Better Politics; its all here and more

Weekend Links

I’m going to keep putting pictures of Spring up here until I start seeing something that looks like it! Thirty five days to opening day of the MLB season–can’t wait.  The links this week are heavy on ministry issues and very diverse. I am working on a video project that I am praying will have national impact on the abortion debate. Pray that it goes viral. It should come in around 5 minutes in length, have a I AM SECOND kind of texture in terms of the starkness of the backdrop and have minimalistic sound. Please pray.

  1. Thank you again for pointing out timely articles. I especially appreciated the article of polemical preaching, which I thought was quite fair in its criticism of such tactics. Like you, I too eagerly anticipate the onset of baseball season. Go Braves!
