The Commercial Church

A church member heard this program today on NHPR and passed it along to me.

Very relevant topic and a frustration of mine being a minister in 21st Century America.
Take a listen when you get a chance.

The Forum (9:15 a.m. Sunday Morning)

This Sunday we are going to try something a little different. I am calling it "The Forum"

The purpose is to engage participants on topics that are relevant to culture. I am hoping it will be time discussing various resources and listening to one another about the world we live in.

To get us going, we will be looking at a book I read over the summer, that I found useful.

Everts, Don & Schaupp, Doug. I Once Was Lost: What Postmodern Skeptics Taught Us About Their Path to Jesus, IVP Press: Downers Grove, 2008.

If you interested, come check us out on Sunday Mornings at 9:15 am.

Next Sunday we complete our series on Reconciliation with Genesis 45. It will also cover the important conversation between Judah and Joseph in Ge 44 that leads to the emotional breakdown for Joseph.

Please plan and join us this coming Lord's Day.

JI Packer & the Trinity Hymnal

Interesting article on CT Online.

I know I have noticed several differences to familiar hymns in the Red Trinity Hymnal and knew there must be a reason why. This article confirms it.

Glad to know some thoughtful people put this together for our benefit.

And as a bonus, a good illustration from Packer.
