Posted by Joshua Claycamp on

blogThis is a list of recent blog posts which I found interesting. That I found them interesting doesn't mean I necessarily agree with or endorse all of the ideas presented in the posts, but that I found them to be intriguing and thought-provoking. They may benefit you as you prayerfully consider your area of shepherding and stewardship, which has been given to you in trust by the Lord. (They are listed in no particular order of interest.) Please post your comments to discuss  any article that strikes your interest. If you have recent blog posts to nominate, please send the link and your reasons for nominating that post to

What day most changed the course of history?

The Atlantic invites historians to answer the question of which day most changed the course of history. The responses tell us much about our society for this one little tid-bit: no one mentioned a certain Sunday morning in the first century. This is why you simply must invite your friends to the Passover Dinner this coming Easter. See details here. Most of the people around us are more clueless then they realize, and they are usually more clueless then you are willing to admit to yourself! We must invite them so they can hear the story!

Passion Week Info-graphic

“This week’s info-graphic, The Passion Week, is a chronological timeline of the major events that happened that happened during Jesus’ last week before he died and rose again.” Share this graphic with friends that you may want to invite to Passover. It helps them to understand how the last week of Christ's life unfolded.

The Bible

CNN covers Mark Burnett and his miniseries The Bible. I have not gotten to see it yet. Melinda Penner of Stand to Reason offers some positives and some negatives. You should be sure to tell your friends about it, and get them to tune in and watch it.

One Family Under God

Tom Ascol offers a balanced and helpful look at children’s church and having the whole family (or almost the whole family, since I don’t think he’s opposed to a nursery) worship together.

A Surrogate’s Dilemma

This is a horrible story from CNN that so clearly displays the horrors of a culture that devalues life in the womb. “Crystal Kelley was offered $10,000 to have an abortion after ultrasounds showed the baby she was carrying for another couple had severe medical problems.”

Canada’s Supreme Court Ruling

And again, sticking with a theme, Joe Carter shows why Canada’s recent Supreme Court ruling (which some think may actually be beneficial to Christians) “has potentially broad implications for the Christian witness in Canada.”

Chavez’s Last Words

“The head of Venezuela’s presidential guard was with Hugo Chavez during his final moments. His report on Chavez’s last words paints a picture of a man desperately clinging to life. According to this report, Chavez said: I don’t want to die. Please don’t let me die.” Denny Burk reflects upon this, and so should you. Everyone around us will die sooner or later. Time is short, and Chavez's last words paint the grim, horrible reality of what we are all facing. But there is hope. We must tell people about Jesus! Invite them to church, invite them to Passover, invite them to Christ!
