Links That Made Me Think

Recently a few friends have sent links or posted them elsewhere that have been thought-provoking and a blessing to me.  Here are some of them:

The Shadow of Schizophrenia: Where God was amid my mom's mental illness.  This article is by Amy Simpson, who writes with great transparency about what it was like to live with a mom (a pastor's wife) sinking into schizophrenia.  Powerful story.

When the Doctor Calls is Gordon MacDonald's story of learning from a master about memorizing Scripture against his will, and how that practice gave him something many of the rest of us do not have when we need it.

Russell Moore: From Moral Majority to Prophetic Minority is a Wall Street Journal interview with Moore, who speaks about his new role as leader of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Committee of the SBC, and the place in which Christians now find themselves.

"Evolution vs. God" is Ray Comfort's latest apologetics offering, and worth taking a look at.

Another Celebrity Victim is a profoundly sad commentary by Karen Spears Zacharias on the aftermath of the rescue of Hannah Anderson and her actions in social media following that rescue.  It makes one wonder about a lot of things.

I attended this spring's Gospel Coalition National Conference and was incredibly blessed.  They have finally posted the video's of the messages.  Here is the first one from Don Carson in the pre-conference series on world missions.  Enjoy.
