Off Grid Illegal; Congressional Suggestions; Income Inequality; Multi-site Churches; Thabiti Anyabwile; Lent and Evangelicals

Weekend Links

The snow is receding and I have detected a corresponding rise in the positive spirit among everyone I talk to.  Interesting how our happiness is so often tied to a change in weather. I think it is a longing in our hearts for the perfection of heaven, the perfection of days. This weekend’s links are not about perfection but they are about changing our thinking so that the will of God is done on earth just as it is in heaven. Personally, I’m looking forward to getting outside, doing some outdoor preaching, riding my bike and taking some walks with my wife. Enjoy.
