Saturday Snippets (April 17)

As well as reading a lot of books, I also read a ton of articles every week. Here are some of the articles that I’ve read recently and have found interesting, helpful, challenging and encouraging. I hope that they will be the same for you, my dear readers…

Christian Guides to the Classics

Some of these course look very helpful. I haven’t done any of them, but just looking at them there will probably something for everyone in the lineup.

JEHOVAH WITNESS’ 101

What exactly do Jehovah witnesses believe? How are they different from Christians? These are important questions for Christians to think about. This post will help.

Are Miracles Still Possible and Probable?

Whilst it’s helpful to discuss this topic and engage with the non-Christian perspective, it’s also very important to engage with it in Christian circles too.

Why I intentionally shot myself in the foot

“It isn’t always about playing the game, or playing it safe. Sometimes it’s necessary to do something that you know is better, even if there is a cost to it.”

Why I Write

“Scope is not the measure of success, faithfulness is. When going through a desert season of writing, one of the main reminders that helps me persevere, no matter how frustrated I get, is that I’ve been given a stewardship from God to glorify him and bless others.”

Ramadan – A Christian Perspective

Some helpful thoughts on Ramadan and how to engage with Muslims with the good news of Jesus during this time.

Ethnic and social diversity in the early church

Very interesting article which should give us a pause for thought as we approach church today.

What should we make of the breaking of bread in Acts 2:42?

“I don’t think that Acts 2:41-47 has a great deal to say about whether the ordinance was part of a full communal meal or not. What is clearly does tell us, however, is that the Lord’s Supper is for those who have professed faith, been baptised and joined to the local church in membership. It is for those who are gathered together and a body of baptised, professing believers.”

The Great Leadership Challenge of 2021

“But it does mean being aware of the possibility that we, and our church members, risk being shaped by the last twelve months into “erring on the side of caution for the rest of our careers”—and doing what we can to stop that from happening.”
