There are times when someone else says something you’ve been feeling and even trying to express much better, more elegantly than you’ve been able to utter. Today in my inbox I received this post from Desiring God and that was the case. In recent weeks and months I’ve been telling several friends and even people [...]
I’m a fan of Mark Driscoll. Because he’s a fan of Jesus, the Bible and absolute truth! Anyway, Mark Driscoll is halfway through sermon series on Luke. This is no ordinary sermon series…he’s taking almost 3 years (106 weeks in all) and he’s over a year and a half in. This coming Sunday he’ll [...]
