December 4, 2012

Recent Reads is a collection of blogs, articles and books I’ve been reading lately and thought well enough of them to share them with you. Click here for past Recent Reads.

Here are my recent reads for Tuesday December 4th, 2012.

Can I Smoke Marijuana?

  • With the recent legalization of marijuana use for recreational purposes in the states of Washington & Colorado, and with its growing popularity in BC, I thought I’d post this article from Pastor-friends in Texas, where, like BC, it is still illegal…more.

Brothers, Build a Gospel Culture

  • “The church is full of hypocrites.” I’ve heard that a lot.

Without one or the other, a church community will lose either her credibility or her strength…more.

A Father’s Fright of Twilight

  • I’ve never seen any of the Twilight movies…just thought I’d put that out there.

  • On a similar note to vampires, I get asked questions (more often than you’d think) about Satan and demons. Here’s another Pastor Mark Driscoll post about something that may scare you…or not….more.

4 creative & thoughtful (not pop) Christmas albums for free or cheap

  • On a lighter note…haha…here’s some great Christmas albums for you to get this season suggested by a friend of mine who’s planting a church in the lower mainland…more.
