“A Successful Pastoral Transition, And Beyond- Pastor Bill Walden”Poimen Ministries
“Our vision is to strengthen senior or lead pastors. We believe as we do this it gives the church a better opportunity to be even more fruitful and make a greater impact for God’s kingdom.”

“Relevance, Worldliness, And Contextualizing The Gospel”
“Contextualization or relevance? Are they the same thing, or is there really a difference? Theologically speaking, there is, but they aren’t in opposition. Maybe they’re like cousins, close like family but not quite siblings. For example, I can contextualize the Gospel without being young or cool, although I might not be relevant (at least in appearance) to a younger generation.”

“The Dam Begins to Break: Gelernter’s Apostasy Attracts Mainstream Media Coverage”Evolution News
“Yale computer scientist Dave Gelernter’s recent public admission that he’s giving up Darwin continues to make waves. On the heels of distinguished Catholic intellectual and writer George Weigel’s comments about Gelernter in Getting Beyond Darwin comes the acknowledgment from Barbara Kay in the National Post that the debate over Darwinism is on again.”

“Brexit – Boris’s Coup?”TheWeeFlea
“From a distance, it looks as though the United Kingdom is having a collective nervous breakdown. According to Owen Jones, The Guardian, the BBC, Sky News and most of the political classes, Boris Johnson has started a coup against democracy. What is going on? Are tanks on the street, being bravely challenged by the Middle Classes as they seek to protect democracy and fight for the poor? Surely it’s the end of the world as we know it!”

“Where is Satan right now? – Q&A”The Enduring Word
“In this week’s Q&A episode Pastor David Guzik answers questions about where Satan is right now, whether Christians should partake in debates, more on the divorce and remarriage topic, head coverings and many more!”

“U.S. Surgeon General’s Advisory: Marijuana Use and the Developing Brain”
“I, Surgeon General VADM Jerome Adams, am emphasizing the importance of protecting our Nation from the health risks of marijuana use in adolescence and during pregnancy. Recent increases in access to marijuana and in its potency, along with misperceptions of safety of marijuana endanger our most precious resource, our nation’s youth.”

“Restored and Recommissioned”Back to Basics
“Despite our intentions to please the Lord, we all fail to one degree or another. But if we truly repent of our sin, God graciously allows us to keep serving Him—even when we can think of a hundred reasons He should not.”
