10 articles for your information, edification, and enjoyment.

Let No Special Need Hinder the Spread of the Gospel – Amen. Wondering how your church can minister the gospel to those with special needs? Look no further than this post.

Should I Attend a Same-Sex Wedding? – “Sometimes the most loving thing to do is not the thing that on the surface looks most loving…Going to a same-sex wedding is not the most loving thing to do because I don’t want to encourage my friends in actions that run contrary to God’s command.”

How Now Shall We Write? – Bethany Jenkins on how the authority of God is at risk through our use of modal verbs. This is such a helpful piece for preachers, teachers, and writers, especially.

Why Curing Cancer Matters to Me – Barnabas Piper is always entertaining and interesting to read, but in this short post he is particularly heartwarming.

What Would it Have Been Like to Attend a Puritan Worship Service? – History buffs, particularly church history buffs, like myself, will greatly appreciate this.

Walk With God For Joy – Jared Wilson says that Victoria Osteen most definitely wasn’t right in her recent comments, but she also wasn’t completely wrong. Read to see what he means.

Never, never underestimate the power of the love of God to break down and transform the most amazingly hard individuals. –D.A. Carson
