Tune Tuesday - A Sober Classic

Suicide..a permanent solution to a temporary problem...the most selfish act a person can do...

And rampant.

We need to be careful to observe...and act...

This oldie from Petra should be rereleased or covered by Casting Crowns or someone...

Its message is vital...

Tune Tuesday - A Great Hymn You May Not Know

I'm thankful I attend a church where music is important...not based on whether it entertains, but whether it feeds...thus we use a lot of hymns rich in gospel truth...

Haven't heard this in church...yet...never heard it before a couple days words!

The New Testament in Three Words

J. I. Packer's Knowing God is classic.

This is a phenomenal book...I read it about every year...can't recommend it too highly:

Context...Clarity...or Confusion

Words matter.

Context is vital, in all things...especially, and most important, in the Word of God.
