- “The Joys of Small Groups” by Scott Hollingshead (Cripplegate). I am so thankful that my home church is committed to small group ministry and this blog post captures a few of the reasons why.
- “Moms, Your Secret Sacrifice Matters” by Shanna Mallon (Desiring God).
- “Should Christians Cremate Their Loved Ones? A Modest Proposal” by John Piper (Desiring God). This is just one view on the option of cremation, but well thought out. I am not in agreement with his discouraging of cremation, but I do think his exhortation to the church to help pay for those in financial hardship who are cremating because of the lack of funds.
- “Ode to the Church” by David Gundersen (Raw Chrisitianity). My brother-in-law’s description of the Sunday gathering is beautiful, inspiring, hopeful and truthful.
