“CGN Leaders: Nate Holdridge on the Spirit Filled Church”Calvary Global Network
“Nate Holdridge expounds on what it means to be a ‘Spirit-filled’ church. ‘The Holy Spirit is the one who empowers and equips and enables for ministry…'”

“Let’s Deconstruct a Deconversion Story: The Case of Rhett and Link”The Gospel Coalition
“It’s no wonder, then, that every time we turn around there is yet another deconversion story being proffered as the newest ex-evangelical smoking gun. The most recent—and arguably most influential—one has come from entertainers and YouTube sensations Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal of the Good Mythical Morning channel and Ear Biscuits podcast.”

“5 Ways to Teach Your Children to Hate the Ministry”
“To put it bluntly, a lot of pastors’ children hate the ministry. A few years back, my research team interviewed 20 pastors’ kids who are adults now. They provided some insights that were both inspiring and disturbing.

“Coronavirus Crazy”TheWeeFlea
“Douglas Murray’s The Madness of Crowds is prophetic in many ways – not least in its title. That phrase came to mind today last night when speaking at NorWest Anglican on the subject of Christians and the Environment.”

“Are We Living Out Romans 1? Blessing And Curse In A Post-Obergefell World”– Desiring God
“After many years and much struggling, God used the words of Romans 1 as he led me to repentance and faith. Through the crucible of conversion, I learned that the central thrust of this passage required eyes of faith. What I called love for my lesbian partner, God called defilement.”

“Carpe Diem (Seize the Day) Redeemed: A Biblical View of Time (with Os Guinness)“– Think Biblically
“Where does the time go? We frequently lament. Time is fixed for all of us yet around the world and historically there have been many different views of time, that emerge out of the worldview of the day. Best selling author and speaker Os Guinness reflects on our views of time and how a Christian worldview impacts how we view our time.”

“Falling Away”Back to Basics
“Besides all of that, people have been departing from the faith since the Church began. I would venture to say that there is a greater Christian witness in the world today than there has ever been in history up until this time. If we were to look at the Church of Jesus Christ in the 11th century A.D., for example, we would be hard-pressed to connect it with the 1st century Church that we read about in the book of Acts.”
