- Don't stop praying. Sunday night I was privileged to witness two baptisms: one of an eighty-something (I think) year old woman; the other a 24 year old young man. They are two people who you might have been inclined to stop praying for. She must be too old to learn the gospel or respond to it; too far gone; but she wasn't too far gone. And the 24 year old had heard the truth from infancy, but had rejected it; sought satisfaction and comfort elsewhere. He was so lost you might think he couldn't be found. Well, God found him and the transformation has been nothing short of amazing. Good reminder to me to not give up hope as long as there is breath in the lungs of the one for whom you are praying.
- Four good questions to ask before joining a church. These aren't exhaustive, but they are important. (I don't agree with the notion that looking for a church is sort of the last thing to do upon completing a move. What he says may just reflect the reality for most people and not be prescriptive, but the church search must be a priority in any move.)
- One of my favorite books on marriage (it's required reading if you do pre-marriage counseling with me) can be had for just $1.99! What are you waiting for? Go buy When Sinners Say "I Do" and start reading it!
