I added some Kindle deals yesterday and will hope to track down some more this morning.

Jake Meador writes about the “Alistair Begg unpleasantness of the past several weeks” and explain how “the entire affair, beginning to end, is one protracted indictment of American evangelicalism.”

Church Social helps elders, deacons and pastors be informed leaders by giving them quick access to information about the members under their care, including special dates like birthdays, anniversaries or even when loved-ones passed away.

John Dyer takes a look at some of the ways that digital apps are changing the way we read the Bible. These are things worth thinking about.

Cindy points out the way we tend to connect sharing with abundance—we share what we have a lot of. Yet she wants us to consider sharing even what’s sparse. “I don’t know what resources you have—or think you don’t have. Resources come in all varieties. It may be money or cookies or power tools or vehicles. Whatever the resource is, and regardless of the amount of it you have, share it willingly. Who knows what God might want to do with it.”

Trevin reminds us that evil doesn’t always show up waving a flag. “You’ve probably heard of Godwin’s Law—the idea that as an online discussion progresses, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler increases. Godwin’s Law is meant to be humorous, but it says something serious about our society that one of the last remaining vestiges of moral coherence is that we all know Hitler was wrong.”

9Marks has released a new issue of their journal and this one has lots of articles and resources related to evangelism.

Reading or listening to gossip is not a different sin from speaking or spreading it, but simply the opposite side of the same sin.

Friends may speak, and ministers may speak, yea, angels may speak, and all in vain; but if God please to speak, the dying soul reviveth.

—George Swinnock
