School House Rock Videos

Even though Fred didn’t make it home until 2:30AM the night before (they’re pushing a big deadline at Peacemakers), we still stayed up late with Sophia last night, giggling and singing along to some of our favorite School House Rock videos: I simply can’t get “conjunction junction” out of my mind!

Coal Train Railroad — Jazz for Kids (!)

Preaching to Four Groups: Weary, Wandering, Lazy, Lost

Kevin DeYoung has a great post today on preaching the whole counsel of Scripture by being mindful of the variances of people in your church: Preaching to the Whole Choir In it, he talks about four categories of people: “The Weary, The Wandering, The Lazy, The Lost.” As I read it, I appreciated its (intended) application of pastors and sermons. …

Fearful Saints Fresh Courage Take

God Moves in a Mysterious Way (William Cowper) God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plants His footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. Deep in unfathomable mines Of never-failing skill He treasures up His bright designs, And works His sovereign will. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread …
