airbrushed to protect the guilty.
Yes, I know, I know—the blog is once again eerily silent throughout the week. At this point, I cannot make any promises as to when that will change, but it will change. Someday. Just not tomorrow. And probably not the next day. I anticipate a few more months with only sporadic posts while I finish up school, but rejoice with me that the end is near. And here's a teaser for something anticipated in the near future: I have an article in the queue that I wrote nearly a year ago. For one reason or another I've been sitting on it all this time, but it is coming sooner rather than later. And it is rather lengthy, so hopefully it will help make up for the silence.
Well, it has been another busy and slightly stressful week, but that's okay. Why? Because I started the week by receiving the gift pictured here. That's right, I am unique (actually, lots of people may agree with that, though they might not define 'unique' favorably), and Jesus loves me. And yes, that cheerful little message is written on a rubber-grip jar opener. Now every time I open a new jar of pickles or olives I will be encouraged by this Joel Osteen-esque trinket. So thank you for the gift, small and painfully-awkward church that I visited this week. I'll never forget you. I will try, but I fear I will not be successful.
You know, if it weren't so early in the morning, I might be craving pickles right now. Instead, I'm craving coffee, so while I go pour another cup, why don't you take a few moments to enjoy your week in review (kind of):
- Do you grieve over sin?
- Free ebook!
- And another free ebook!
- Some advantages to engaging in consecutive expository preaching.
- Here is the audio and/or video of all of the sessions (including breakout sessions) from this year's Shepherds' Conference (aka, The Inerrancy Summit).
- I just don't even know what to do with this. Not only must Joel Osteen be stopped, but so must the intern who is running his Twitter feed.
- Because the week isn't truly crazy until you've read some nonsense from Charisma.
- Goodbye and good riddance, Internet Explorer.
- Worship according to the Word.
- Another treasure from this year's Shepherds' Conference:
