• "A September 11th Tribute"
"As I tell you my story of God’s mercy, I do not forget that there are still thousands of stories of pain and loss. Please join me in continuing to pray for God’s comfort on those who lost loved ones 16 years ago today."– Andy Deane, Director of Calvary Chapel Bible College
• "Something of a Milestone: Completing Commentary of the Entire Bible"– Enduring Word
"This week (first week of September, 2017) I reached a personal and ministry milestone, completing and posting the final chapters of commentary on the Book of Proverbs. This means that I now have commentary on every chapter of the Bible."–David Guzik
• "The Great Spiritual Migration – A Challenge from and to, Brian McLaren"– David Robertson
"As it happened the book he was commending, is one that I recently finished, and was about to write a review on. It’s a book that is endorsed by Steve Chalke, and Canon Mark Russell of the Church Army, and Peter Enns. It talks about justice and peace and love and equality and diversity and accepting one another. If there is a buzzword in our culture then you can be sure it makes it into this book. What could possibly be wrong?"
• "There is Only One Race – the Human Race"– Cincinnati.com
"Although racism sadly exists in many churches today, Christians are the ones best equipped to counter it. As they look back on the church’s abolitionist heritage, Christians should continue to use their very powerful weapon, the Bible, to fight racism, especially today when tensions mount as white supremacists stage protests, statues are taken down and Cincinnati deals with simmering racial issues."
• "The Religion of Rights"– BBC
"European society", says Sir Roger Scruton, "is rapidly jettisoning its Christian heritage and has found nothing to put in its place save the religion of human rights". But, he argues, this new "religion" delivers one-sided solutions since rights favour the person who can claim them - whatever the moral reasons for opposing them."
• "The Bee Explains:What is the Nashville Statement?"– The Babylon Bee
"If you’ve come within fifty miles of Twitter or Facebook this week, you’ve probably heard about a mysterious new document called the 'Nashville Statement.' Depending on which crowd you run with, you probably think it’s either a 67th book being added to the canon of Scripture, or else a modern, revised version of Mein Kampf. But unlike the unwashed masses on your social networks, you’re a smart person, and so you came to The Babylon Bee to get the story straight."
• "Pastor, Don't Neglect Your Current Members to Reach New Ones"– Christianity Today
"Every church needs to be more missional. More outward-reaching. More evangelistic. More outside-the-walls. One of the best indicators of whether-or-not a church is healthy is how much they're reaching people who aren't already in the congregation. The more outward-looking, the more likely it is to be healthy. The more insular, the less healthy."
