Three Questions for Bible Journaling (Cary Hughes, Desiring God)

If you’ve never experienced the benefits of Bible journaling, perhaps you find yourself asking the question, “How do I write my thoughts about what I am reading in my Bible?” We like the idea, but have no idea what to write.

What Shootings and Racial Justice Mean for the Body of Christ (Russell Moore, Russell Moore)

If we believe that every person will stand before a Judgment Seat, we cannot then stand silently when we see injustice. But many—including evangelicals of all ethnicities—wonder what we can really do?

Jesus had wounds that remind us of our own, which instills in us a reason to look at him as we hurt, suffer, and heal. If God has forgiven mankind, then how much more can we forgive one another?

Be a church with small groups, not a church of small groups (Sam Alberry, The Good Book Blog)

Small groups should not become a replacement for the main church meeting. If your small group becomes your church, you are missing out.
