Lessons from a Megachurch Pastor Who Killed a Man

Trevin Wax attempts to learn a few lessons from the life and ministry of J. Frank Norris.  With some help from The Shooting Salvationist, Wax gives 5 things we can learn from his life and ministry.  I found this really intriguing.  It makes me want to learn more about J. Frank Norris.  Helpful lessons too.

I appreciate Dave Miller’s tone and perspective in this piece.  He admits that the issue of homosexuality is a difficult one to navigate for the church of the 21st century.  He then gives 10 biblical principles that can assist us as we walk the tightrope. 

Create!  New E-Book by Stephen Altrogge

Stephen Altrogge is one of my favorite authors.  So it takes very little to motivate me to throw $2.99 at his latest project.  From Stephen, “I believe that God has given every person creative gifts, and that all of us are called to use our creative gifts for the glory of God. This book is intended to inspire and motivate Christians to start using the creative gifts that God has given them for the glory of God and the good of others. It’s a book for artists and homemakers, poets and plumbers, architects and accountants. In other words, this book is for you.”  Pick up a copy
