Husbands/Dads, Do You Shepherd Your Families?

I loved this short article. I would really like to implement this sort of thing at home.

So You Want to be Holy?

The High Priests Have Spoken--Trade Your Geneva Gown for a Lab Coat

Stephen Hawking has recently declared that, based on his work in physics, God is not necessary to explain the origin of the universe.

“Because there is a law such as gravity,” writes Hawking in his new book, The Grand Design, “the universe can and will create itself from nothing."

Christians have been quick to respond, of course (see The Solas Centre's response here), and I'm sure there will be many more articles to come in the future so I'll keep my response short.

Hawking says that, given gravity, the existence of the universe is inevitable. Now I need his help in completing this sentence:

"Given _______, the existence of gravity is inevitable."

Bono, Bonhoeffer, and Carl

"It would be tragic and a travesty of New Testament church life  if, in spending so much time listening to everybody else out there, pastors ended up with no time on their schedule to listen to the voices of their own people."

I love Carl Trueman. Lately it seems like half the quotes that grab my attention are from him. If you're a pastor, I highly recommend the above-linked article. If you're not . . . read it anyway and forward the link to your pastor!

#651; Those Volatile Menu Options

I currently work at a hospital. A doctor, you ask? No, I'm a receptionist. And being a receptionist I spend a lot of time on the phone. It's startling how accurately Dave Malki captured my "on-the-phone" experience in today's Wondermark. Enjoy!

Good Reading + Raising the Bar for Biblical Studies=the everlasting covenant

I met a lot of cool people in seminary, but one of the coolest was definitely Chris Morgan. We had a lot of fun getting to know him, his wife Michelle, and their kids while we lived in St. Louis. I was thrilled when I found out he started a blog because that meant I could regularly hear from a friend I miss.

As it turns out, Chris's blog--called the everlasting covenant--serves a two-fold purpose. First, it will allow Chris to share his learning with the rest of us, and believe me, Chris is a sharp and careful thinker. There's plenty to share.

Second, it will help Chris and Michelle prepare for their future. All that learning and careful thinking Chris did in seminary lead him to three different opportunities for PhD work in Biblical Studies. That's exciting, but Chris and Michelle are facing some financial hurdles. The blog, along with the rest of Chris's website, will serve as their on-line 'home base' for fundraising.

I know Chris will do excellent work as a Biblical scholar and I want him to be able to take advantage of the opportunities God has given him. We need evangelical voices in Biblical studies, so go to his website, find out more about him, and pray. Pray to see if God wants you to support Chris and Michelle, but most of all just pray that God will buoy the Morgans up during an uncertain time in their lives.
