My dog ate my homework.
Seriously, I couldn’t think of anything original today. I keep having this bad habit of posting great stuff in the summer on Saturday and Sunday when nobody’s online reading; and then the well runs dry during the week…

- I promise you, you’ve never heard How Great Thou Art performed like they do it at World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. This is a must watch!!!

- Twelve stressors that missionaries face pare paired up with questions you can ask to bring issues to the surface.
- Randy Alcorn’s thoughts on the afterlife turn up in Eternity, a 120 page graphic novel.
- A Kansas church finds a stash of Bibles in many languages in mint condition… but what they really need is new church restroom.
- Here’s the unofficial results of an unscientific survey in which pastors — albeit subjectively — reported how long their average sermon runs.
- Finally, from our sister blog, Christianity 201, a look at how when we turn back to God, He runs to meet us where we are.
Well, we could do this all week, but…
