The Wayback Machine: December
Some things just get better with age. “The Wayback Machine” posts occur at the end of every month and reference the best posts of that month in years past. My hope is to provide a good jumping on point for readers who have never been to Pursuing Glory.
I received an early copy of Primal, a book by National Community Church pastor Mark Batterson. This was a good read that took a look at loving God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Jesus raises up movements that sweep large numbers of souls into the Kingdom of God. In this post, I look at the nature of movements as unpacked by Mark Driscoll during an Acts 29 gathering. It’s good food for thought if you’ve never though of Christianity as a movement.
So I bought this new bible (Wide Margin ESV) and it inspired me to start a new feature where bloggers (in particular, me) talk about what we’re learning as we’re reading through the Bible. I’ve done a few more like it, and I would love to see others join me. If you’re interested, let me know.
I always love wishing someone a “Merry Christmas.” You really can’t do much better on a Christmas post than to challenge materialism, talk about the incarnation of Christ, and quote Dr. Seuss. This post may set the standard for my Christmas greetings in the future.
I was just a new blogger in 2006, but I also became a new dad! This was the only blog of December 2006, but it announces the birth of my first child. She’s just as special four years later as she was when I posted this.
