All kinds of good stuff this week!
First, Crossway has several excerpts of Trevin Wax’s new book Holy Subversion. This is a book I have wanted to read – even more so after reading the excerpts. These excerpts all relate to how we use our free time. The last one relates to my last several posts on being a church family as he addresses relationships and free time with application for the church. See here, here, here, and here.
First Things shares the secret to appreciating church – and it closely relates to being a church family.
Also related to being a church family, and especially unity amidst offenses is Ray Ortlund’s helpful post on guarding and repairing relationships.
Finally, Donald Whitney has a great strategy for outreach that shows real compassion for people.
