online meanderings

Short but very sweet.

What if Jesus is still dead? - Then this, too, is true... David Murray.

How to start a conversation with a Muslim woman - Great advice in a small space. Kate McCord

The birds and the bees - Ideas and resources for talking with your kids about the facts of life. A new series by Wendy. Can't recommend this highly enough.

Brothers, we are not professors - Teach people, don't floor them with your knowledge. RC Sproul Jr.
Some people fall asleep during the sermon, and we make fun of them. But in some sense, we always fall asleep during the sermon; we do that every night. Psalm 19 says that the heavens declare the glory of God, the firmament is constantly preaching about God. So it is not as though we are ever safe. There is no place you can go to get out of the presence of God. The world is charged with the presence of the living God.
Life in this universe, seen with true faith, is always high liturgy, always bursting with meaning, bursting with the life of the triune God, bursting with power to shape, to break, to mould, to crush, to save. The world is shot through with the glory of God. Toby Sumpter

Jean, I clicked on the 'how to talk to a Muslim woman' link but am told I don't have permission to view the page. Is it a private blog?
