I am particularly excited headed into this weekend as we are having our annual church conference, The Enemy Within, featuring author Kris Lundgaard. Kris is going to deal with the believer’s fight against sin through the power of Christ. It should be an awesome time of exhortation towards the holiness of Jesus. If you attend the conference you’ll receive a copy of Kris’ book The Enemy Within, but be sure to check out his other book Through the Looking Glass. If you are in or around Omaha this weekend come and join us starting at 8 tomorrow morning. The audio should be up early next week.
The Terrell Owens issue got a lot of attention a couple of weeks ago. In my article that posted on the day of T.O.’s hospitalization I attempted to think biblically about the very public life of Owens. Whether or not he attempted suicide is not the bottom line issue. The guy’s heart is crying out for worship and his actions are seeking to accommodate this insatiable desire. The point of the article was to take a very prominent news story of that day and to think biblically about it not to report news; all of the major networks were doing that and reporting that it was a suicide attempt. All that to say I believe the diagnosis of the patterns in T.O.’s life are biblically diagnosed in the article.
Some others who featured this article include the ‘Reformed Drudge Report’ himself, Justin Taylor. If it is happening and it matters in evangelicalism then it is probably on Justin’s site. I was pleased to meet Justin at the Desiring God conference, where by the way, he did a great job moderating interviews with the speakers.
The Boars Head Tavern (probably one of the coolest blog titles out there) thought things may be a bit more complicated but essentially agreed. Apologia Christi is a Cowboy fan who weighed in, along with Dwight Warner, and William Turner.
Alex & Brett Harris from Rebelution had some thoughts concerning the issue. I was glad to meet them through this article. I’m diggin their site and thankful for their impact in the young adult circles. I still can’t believe these guys are teenagers. Great stuff.
Apparently Paul Gobel is following the ‘Tricky Ricky‘ discussion in his spare time while defending freedom and liberating the nation of Iraq from terrorists. Paul we appreciate your service to our nation! I’m thankful for the web that allows you to chime in, even from Iraq.
Lazaro has posted some pictures of the Texas victory over Oklahoma (even crying sooner fan / kid). Enjoy it while you can man, next week in Lincoln we’ll see a different story in a shocking Nebraska victory of the ‘Horns (sounding more an more like the myopic Nebraska fan)…anyway, this is more hopeful than anythig else, looking forward to that match-up at any rate.
:: Have a great weekend. Enjoy the supreme privilege of worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ. Proclaim the glories of his cross, the beauties of his person, the terror of his return. Do today what Christians will do for all eternity, enjoy Jesus Christ and all of his mighty splendor.
