6 MINUTES TO FLOOD YOUR HEART WITH JOY & ENCOURAGEMENT
Lee Stoneking addresses the UN General Assembly by (wait for it) humbly preaching the gospel. This is the type of news (I suspect happens more often than we would expect) that the major news sites do not cover. But God covers it. 🙂
THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD…
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.” (Psalm 19:1-2)
Fox News’ article on the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Telescope. The photos are breath-taking.
10 FEARS A PARENT WHO HAS LOST A CHILD FACES
For obvious reasons, this article jumped out at me like a Neon Light. That said, some of the articles I read concerning the loss of a child are strong, others – not so much. However, this one is spot-on. You may not have lost a child but, chances are, you know someone who has. This article offers some keen insight.

QUOTE(s) of the WEEK
“Either [Christ] was a raving lunatic of an unusually abominable type, or else He was, and is, precisely what He said. There is no middle way.” – C.S. Lewis – The Problem of Pain
“Religion makes us proud of what we have done. The Gospel makes us proud of what Jesus has done.” Timothy Keller
“All pains and pleasures we have known on earth are early initiations in the movements of the Eternal Dance (heaven); but the Dance itself is strictly incomparable with the sufferings of this present time…[The Dance] does not exist for us, but we for it.” – C.S. Lewis; The Problem of Pain; on heaven (Here’s to “practicing our dance steps” in preparation for the Eternal Dance!)
“The Red Sea may roll before us; the desert my entrap us; the enemy may press on our heels. The past may seem implausible and the future impossible, but God works in ways we cannot see. He will make a way of escape for His weary, but waiting, children.” “I [the LORD] will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19) – Robert Morgan; The Dead Sea Rules
“We can rest contentedly in our sins and in our stupidities;…But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pain: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” – C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain; on how God uses pain to get our attention.

Southern Baptists tend to be ignorant of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit – and the enemy loves that.
