Lots of good stuff this week. Take the time!
- The Seventh Day Adventist Church is celebrating a 150-year anniversary, though as a group that believed in very imminent return of Jesus, the anniversary is a bit of an embarrassment.
- Clay Gentry goes really deep on those “phantom” scripture verses, including some principles many people think are contained in the Bible but aren’t…
- …And here are two other verses you know well which the author of this article says technically don’t exist the way you know them.
- When the leader of a seminar on marriage is asked how many times a week a couple should be intimate, it’s probably safest not to give a direct answer.
- Sorry to learn of the passing yesterday of Billy Graham crusade soloist George Beverly Shea. He was 104 years old. Yes, 104. “I’d rather have Jesus than anything this world affords today…”
- Know someone in ministry who is in their 60s but has the outlook of a 30-year old? Or someone who is 40 going on 75? The Leadership magazine What’s Your Ministry Age? survey from 2009 is still online!
- Song of the Week: How about an Indian flavor for How Great Thou Art.
- Readers weigh in on a concern about a woman who dresses inappropriately at both church and her work as a middle school teacher.

- Speaking of Bible translations, here’s five questions that I guarantee some KJV-Only advocates can’t answer.

|About the Blogroll:
This blog has a rather interesting link list in the sidebar. Blogs mentioned are chosen because they are (a) faith focused and (b) posting regularly. The doctrinal flavor of the blogs listed is quite varied, but I don’t include blogs that appear to have more “agenda” than content. Some blogs are listed somewhat permanently, some disappear and return a month later. Together, they represent almost one fifth of the bloggers that I have bookmarked in my computer and read regularly. Some of the blogs appearing in the Wednesday link list end up on this page later on, while others have a key post that I feel is worth mentioning, while at the same time I haven’t gotten to know them well enough yet to establish them as a link or imply endorsement. Recommendations are invited.
