summit

On Sunday, Jan. 31st, we’re having a very special worship service that includes a totally different Sunday morning schedule. ALL Sunday Schools will meet at 9:15am, then EVERYONE will assemble together in the Worship Center at 10:30am. Overflow space will be available in the Commons. It’s on this morning that Jason will present very exciting plans and vision for BHBC. Then, come back at 5pm for a special “building presentation.” This is not a vote, but simply an opportunity to see what could be in our future.

LEIBNIZ’ CONTIGENCY ARGUMENT

This short video will make your “head hurt” a little.  But the theology and philosophy are solid.

 

DO MUSLIMS & CHRISTIANS WORSHIP THE SAME GOD?

In light of the trending news topic from Wheaton College (a professor claimed Muslims & Christians worship the same God), I though it prudent to include what I consider a great response to the question:  Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God?  Read Dr. Nabeel Qureshi’s solid & thoughtful response here.

 

A TUMULTUOUS TALE

If you’ve never read the history behind how we got the English translation of our Bible, check it out – it’s a story full of intrigue, sacrifice & drama.

I would recommend “A Visual History of the English Bible: The Tumultuous Tale of the World’s Best Selling Book” by Donald Drake.

If you’re interested in purchasing the book, here’s the link on Amazon:  click here.

BLOGGING: MUSIC NOTES & SOUL FOOD (Year-end report)

I just received my “end of year” email from WordPress containing numbers for our BHBC Music Notes blog as well as my Soul Food blog. Music Notes has been visited approximately 5900 times this past year, while my Soul Food blog was visited approximately 13,000 times. That means a lot of people are reading/learning about Christ.  And that’s good news. 🙂
