Youth Groups

November 28, 2007 — Leave a comment

Well, we’ve been having a little discussion in the comment section of this post, and I wanted to bring your attention to this sermon from Dave Brewer. Hopefully, it gives you some insight. Actually, any of their Youth Sunday sermons are fantastic (especially last year’s.)

Not that long ago I was invited to write a chapter in a book on blogging. Sadly, this book didn’t quite make it through the process of being published. But it did deliver what I consider some great time for me to write and some great material in the process as I was forced to sit down and write about teenagers and blogging — a topic that I’m certain many of you know is something I blog about often. So, from this time of writing came
“A Young Man Among Sharks: Teens In The Blogosphere,” a five page treatise on my views of social networking sites and the rest.

I’d love to hear your feedback.

Charles Spurgeon’s Sermons

November 14, 2007 — 2 Comments

Around Thanksgiving and Christmastime there is constantly good deals to be had. This year, there is one sale that just cannot be looked over — the esteemed collection Charles Spurgeon’s sermons, a 5-volume set, was recently being sold at $200. Today, they are now on sale at only $29.99. That is an incredible savings of $170, or 85%. I don’t know about you, but this man is one whom I greatly admire, and whom I am constantly reading. I own quite a few books by The Last Great Puritan Spurgeon or about Spurgeon, but this set is not yet a part of my library. I certainly hope that changes very soon. Put it on your list — you don’t want to miss out.

Here’s just a short clip of Spurgeon’s life for the uniformed: Charles Haddon Spurgeon, commonly C.H. Spurgeon, (June 19, 1834 – January 31, 1892) was a British Reformed Baptist preacher who remains highly influential amongst Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known in various circles as the “Prince of Preachers.”
