This 'n' That

This picture has nothing to do with anything,
but I love its randomness.
Well, another week has come and gone. A lot has happened in the world in that time, and no doubt much has happened in your own life as well. Today marks a bittersweet day for me. I'll explain in more detail next week, but for now, let's just say that the following things have characterized the past 7 days for me: smashed finger, thunderstorms, turkey chili, fellowship, fantastic sermons, extended deadlines, biblical theology, Genesis through Revelation, sorbet, coyote, Calvinism vs. Arminianism, chauvinism, feminism, friendship, wisdom, knowledge, thankfulness.

Whew! It's been a busy few days, as I'm sure it has been for you. But Friday is finally here, the weekend is rapidly approaching, and it's time to get to the good stuff. So, without any further ado, here's your week in review (kind of):

  • Some beautiful thoughts from Elizabeth Prata about God's providential care.
  • So…um…Dodie Osteen is tweeting crazy talk. Like a lot of it.
  • Here's your weekly dose of adorable.
  • Oh yeah, I totally believe that Planned Parenthood isn't selling baby organs.
  • A new post by Jerry Wragg on the relation of sin to the law.
  • If you're not on the GTY mailing list, sign up now so you can take advantage of their latest free book offer.
  • Do not miss this important sermon by John MacArthur.
  • Some thoughts on our society's assault on women.
  • Dr. Abner Chou teaches on Genesis:


  1. "...it's time to get to the good stuff." Indeed! My wife and I look forward to Fridays even more to see what you've found to share. There's more than enough each week for thought, discussion, prayer, and praise. Thank you for what you do to further His Kingdom.

  2. Somehow OnePlace.com has Part 2 of John MacArthur's excellent message "We Will Not Bow" - and before it's on the GTY.ORG website. Of course this needs to come with a warning that not everything at OnePlace.com is necessarily sound doctrine. Discernment shields up! http://www.oneplace.com/ministries/grace-to-you/

    1. So I spoke too soon, it seems this was just one of the edited version for the radio broadcasts. Still a very powerful sermon, and one that has become among their most-requested.

  3. Loved the article by Entreating Favor. So very well said.


  4. Thank you so much for the link, I truly appreciate it. Have a good week ahead, sister.

  5. Listened to john MacArthur on Thursday! It was an amazing sermon.
    Also cannot wait to get my book on the parables. When he gave the Mullins Lecture at Southern Baptist Seminary last October, his talks were on the parables. He said at the time he was writing the book. I'm sure it will be wonderful if it is anything like those sermons. If you haven't listened to them please try to. I was there and it was a blessing. He was so kind and gracious to talk with everyone afterwards. Just love him!
    Great servant of God.
