B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_I’ve been derelict in my blogging duties lately. So, here are some posts worth considering …

First here is “Kirsten Powers: How a Liberal Democrat and Former Atheist Came to Know Jesus Christ as her Savior.” I love conversion stories. This is a good one.

What is the longest book in the Bible? Here is a hint: the book of Psalms weighs in at number three.

Family devotions are always difficult. Parents, not the church, have the responsibility of raising children in the discipline and admonition of the Lord. Why not use the Heidelberg Catechism to disciple your children? Here is some help in using the catechism with your kids.

Here is a brief response to the George Zimmerman verdict (I know you are probably tired of hearing about it.) by H. B. Charles Jr. I think that most of us who hail from Europe have trouble resonating with the response from the African-American community. The difficulty with an event like this is that it is truly impossible to really know what happened that fateful night. Because of this I identify with people on both sides of the debate.

Church discipline is always difficult. Here is a reflection of how the excommunication of a father ended up being a positive thing.

When J.I. Packer speaks, we should attempt to hear what he is saying. In this article his concern is that too many churches in America are playing the numbers game. Whether a church is large or small, it is always tempting to gauge success and faithfulness based on the size of the congregation.

At Bowman, it always seems that there is some pushback when using the Apostles’ Creed. The word “catholic” trips us up. Here is a brief discussion of the word.

Is Jeremiah 17:9 true of believers? I appreciate this balanced answer.

25 Common Phrases That You’re Saying Wrong. Don’t you hate it when you find out you’ve been revealing your ignorance? I do it all the time.

I enjoyed this piece about the difference between British and American humor (warning: there is some very minor crude allusions).
