We Are Made for Praise
With the shadows of judgment looming, Zephaniah’s greatest motivation for patiently pursuing God comes in his glorious vision of future hope that is held out for all who persevere in faith. Growing out of the fires of judgment will come a new creation that will include transformed worshipers from the nations of the world (Zephaniah 3:8–10). And with God’s wrath now satisfied, having been poured out on the sinners or on the Substitute, the implications of this renewal are glorious for the faithful remnant of Judah (Zephaniah 3:11–20).
How Jesus enabled me to forgive
This parable teaches how Jesus enables us to forgive. When I am angry with someone, it’s because they have caused me loss. This sense of loss hurts, and makes me want to even the scales: since the anger is caused by my loss, the only way to get rid of the anger is to ease the pain of the loss with a huge gain.
A Harvard University student explains how evidence changed her mind about God
I don’t know when I first became a skeptic. It must have been around age 4, when my mother found me arguing with another child at a birthday party: “But how do you know what the Bible says is true?” By age 11, my atheism was so widely known in my middle school that a Christian boy threatened to come to my house and “shoot all the atheists.” My Christian friends in high school avoided talking to me about religion because they anticipated that I would tear down their poorly constructed arguments. And I did.

I am neither a farmer nor the son of a farmer, but living in North Carolina for three years I’ve picked up on a few lessons from the locals. I tried my hand at it last spring for the first time with the hopes of fulfilling my Genesis 1 mandate to subdue the earth by way of planting tomatoes and lettuce. Three months later in August, I had successfully grown a 20×40 foot plot of weeds. One night last August, as I sat down at supper with my wife and 11-month-old son to enjoy the work of my hands, the harvest was not plentiful. We shared a homegrown salad featuring a two-inch carrot, tasteless vine tomatoes and store-bought romaine because mine didn’t make it. It hit me that I was not cut out to be a Genesis 1 land-cultivator, but needed to stick with my vocation as a Matthew 13 seed-sower.
From Anat Cohen to Yoko Noge to Pharez Whitted, a lively week
Chicago Jazz Orchestra Sextet: The cast may shift a bit from week to week, but considering the caliber of players in Jeff Lindberg's Chicago Jazz Orchestra, the performances easily could be as strong as the one I recently heard. On that Monday evening, saxophonists John Wojciechowski and Scott Burns shared the front line with trombonist Tom Garling, the rhythm section powered by pianist Ron Perrillo, bassist Dennis Carroll and drummer George Fludas. Here were serious, unflinching performances of repertory ranging from standard pieces to originals by members of the band. This engagement will set the stage for an upcoming run by the full CJO. Monday nights just got more appealing. 5 and 7 p.m. Mondays at Andy's Jazz Club, 11 E. Hubbard St.; $10; 312-642-6805

We’re Praying for Madhurawada Church
Madhurawada Church is in the city of Visakhapatnam (often Vizag for short), a large, influential port on the eastern coast of India. Vizag is tropical, being about the same distance from the Equator as the Caribbean Sea is, and a hub for several industries. Although there is an ancient Buddhist heritage in the area, today the most practiced religion is Hinduism. Christianity is third most common, behind Islam. Most of the city’s inhabitants speak a language called Telugu, but a few other languages, including English, are often spoken too.

Summary of the William Lane Craig vs Christopher Hitchens debate: Does God Exist?
I got word today that there was an agnostic philosophy student at Dr. Craig’s “Defenders” class today who read this summary of the Craig-Hitchens debate and said it was “perfectly on the money” according to my source. I have not re-posted this summary since 2009, when the debate happened, so I thought I would re-post it today.
