Resurgence roundup, 5/24/13
Sail through the flood of information with our weekly Resurgence Roundups. Each Friday, we will share a list of articles across ministry tribes that our team has found helpful with the hope of serving you well.
Sterrett, Stetzer, and Storms on Oklahoma
This week a deadly tornado ripped through the town of Moore, Oklahoma. Here are three articles we read this week that we found helpful in reflecting upon the goodness of God in the midst of suffering:
- “Oklahoma tornadoes: Where was God?” by Dave Sterrett (Washington Post)
- “We still cry out to God when tragedy strikes,” by Ed Stetzer (USA Today)
- “Tornadoes, tsunamis, and the mystery of suffering and sovereignty,” by Sam Storms (personal blog)
“R.C. Sproul’s Crucial Questions eBooks now free forever,” by Nathan Bingham
This week the team at Ligonier Ministries announced that the eBook editions of R.C. Sproul’s Crucial Questions series will be free—forever. We like free, we like forever, and we like these books. You should download them today if you haven’t already.
“Parents, do you think before you post?” by Jen Wilkin
The Gospel Coalition
Parents today might not think twice about posting photos or statuses about their kids—ones that will live much longer than the old family photo album. But are parents being cavalier in doing so? Wilkin here encourages parents to think ahead and consider the longevity of their posts before posting, tweeting, or sharing.
“Executives & businessmen on mission,” by John Quick
Living on mission is not easy—especially when you’re trying to run businesses or hold high-level positions, as Quick has. In this post, Quick, who today is the executive director of Soma, shares five things that helped him keep his focus while on the road or working overtime.
“7 (hopefully) helpful hints after 7 months of visiting churches,” by Thom Rainer
From not knowing where to park, use the restroom, or follow along in his Bible, Thom shares his observations of churches he visited for speaking engagements. (If you don’t already read it regularly, Rainer’s blog is a wealthy repository of practical advice for church leaders.)
Here are the posts we’ve put out here on Resurgence this week.
- “From prison to ReTrain: Russell’s story,” by Resurgence
- “Contentment,” by Amanda Edmondson
- “‘Each next risk is the biggest one’: James MacDonald talks with Mark Driscoll”
