Weekend Update .....

FYI ….. (4/24)

It’s been a few weeks, but we’re back:

Today is the NFL draft, here’s hoping the Buffalo Bills use their picks well.

Staying on the sports theme; today is the last regular season game for the BBC Defenders softball team. This will be the first time in four years we will not enter the post-season. It’s been a good run, and this is actually one the better teams we have had. The new conference is tougher, but I think we’ll be back next year.

The Gospel Coalition held their second conference this past week; it was an all-star line-up. Well worth checking out.

Pastor Tullian Tchividjian (grandson of Billy Graham - New City Church , Ft. Lauderdale, FL) came out with a book on the church called: Unfashionable. It’s a very good read (I’ll be doing a review of it soon), but even better are his series of messages related to the book. I highly encourage you to listen to them, good stuff: listen here >>>

Read them all: The Stuff Christians Like

The good folks over at Sharper Iron have two very interesting series going on: 1)on Intelligent Design (by John Whitcomb), and 2) Understanding Conservative Christianity (by Kevin Bauder).

From Ed Stetzer (who is employed by the Southern Baptist publishing company: Lifeway): The Southern Baptist Convention: A Denomination (Continuing) in its Decline

Students looking for an INTERNSHIP PROGRAM in a progressive, multi-site, urban church, I suggest you check out this opportunity: National Community Church – Protégé Program

From Between Two Worlds: This August B&H Academic will publish The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown: An Introduction to the New Testament, by Andreas J. Köstenberger, L. Scott Kellum, and Charles L. Quarles. They have a few chapters that you can download on the BTW site, go here >>>

Excellent post: Four Warnings About Burnout from Anne Jackson

Ten Lessons from Great Christian Minds

And finally, if you’re really bored, I spoke in the BBC Chapel this week, you can listen to it here >>>
