The links are back! Here are some highlights of my past seven days online…
- The upper picture is another classic entry from the classic photo site, Shorpy.com; which I’ve mildly colorized. It’s an auditorium in Ocean City, NJ set up for a revival meeting sometime in the time period 1900 – 1910. Click here or on the image all the way through for a full size image. (It’s my computer desktop this week!)
- Donald Miller explains why, for now, the movie based on the Thomas Nelson book Blue Like Jazz isn’t happening.
- Elsewhere in film production, City on a Hill, the people who brought you the Alpha-Course-alternative known as H20 have brought Kyle Idleman back to host a new series titled Not a Fan.
- Bill Mounce wades into the subject of accuracy in Bible translations in the first of a weekly series.
- Randy Morgan gives you an inside peek into the world of pastors, and how and why the whole guest speaker thing occasionally happens.
- Okay, that fun, but maybe it was a little superficial; so do this instead: Click on Randy’s home page, and scroll back to September 13th and then check out his five-part series on his visit to the local AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) chapter. Long, but worth it, especially if you have family or personal history with AA.
Preparing for the upcoming Eighth Letter conference in Toronto, Matt at the blog, The Church of No People, delivers his pressing message for the church in North America.
- It’s 7-pages long, but Christianity Today gets into depth on the church’s relationship with sex offenders.
- CNN boldly goes into a full scientific explanation for what happened when Moses parted the Red Sea.
- A repost of a classic poem asks the question What would He say, if He should come today? Also at Christianity 201, the Love Chapter from I Corinthians rewritten for kids; and something borrowed from David Hayward, aka Naked Pastor.
- Following in the tradition of Russell D. Moore — who this week deals with a tough dilemma — and inspired by the Desiring God video series, Randy Alcorn is inviting questions at Ask Randy; but the deadline is today, Wednesday the 22nd.
- Zach at Take Your Vitamin Z linked this week to this New York Times article which is self explanatory: Deciding Not To Screen for Down Syndrome.
- Seen something online you think should be here next week? Try to get to me by noon on Tuesday.
- Well…choosing a cartoon for this week’s list was no contest after Abraham Piper reminded all of us of this classic: Solomon’s ideal woman as reflected in Song of Solomon interpreted literally; just as it appeared all those years ago at The Wittenburg Door.
