Tornadoes, Why? When we view the damage caused by the devastating tornado that almost wiped Henryville, Indiana off of the map recently, we are tempted to ask why? John Piper provides some answers here.
What Happens To Children Who Die? This is a question I’ve been asked often. I found it helpful to read Tim Challies’ approach to answering this question. Read his article here.
KONY 2012: Like many of you, I have watched the video campaign Kony 2012 which seeks to bring peace to Uganda by making the world aware of the atrocities committed by Joseph Kony and his rebels. The speed at which this went viral on YouTube was amazing. I was also very interested in a blog by a Ugandan from the Africa Renewal Christian College on Joseph Kony. You can read his blog here.
How Do You Fill Your Day? Whatever you do during you day (home, school, office), your activities can probably be organized under five types of headings according to Scott Belsky. In a recent blog by David Murray he applied these five headings in a classroom on leadership and noted that leaders/pastors spend most of their time in reacting to events and people. I’m not so sure that’s a bad thing. Mark’s gospel displays a similar picture of Jesus’ days spent doing exactly that. Read Murray’s blog on organizing your day here.
