Three notable articles I read this week:

Trillia NewbellComplementarians in the black experience. “When I read the Bible, I am assured that complementarianism isn’t and shouldn’t be defined by a 1950s American social construct. Rather it should be defined by the infallible Word of God.”

Tim Cool12 diseases of a church facility. “Just as our bodies contract diseases that can lead to problems and cause pain and discomfort, many diseases can infect church facilities so that the church can experience functional problems and great discomfort. Rarely are these merely cosmetic, but are often outward signs of much more deep seeded problems.”

Michael Kelley6 things you need to start a family devotion. Great, practical advice for any family.


Three people worth following:
