The Tuesday Refill – 7 Belated Links Post-Weekend (21/2/17)
Ok, a few days after the weekend, but there’s some good stuff here…
Gospel Hope for Self-Haters – This is a really helpful interview: “Christians are not immune from self-hatred…”
Preaching Christ’s Resurrection this Easter – Planning your Easter talks already? David Murray gets us thinking about our the different angles the Bible gives us on Christ’s resurrection.
Free eBook: This Momentary Marriage by John Piper – We read through this when we were engaged and it’s full of gold-dust. Crossway are now giving the ebook available for free if you subscribe to their newsletter.
Recovering from Perfect Mom Syndrome – I’m pretty sure it’s not just mums who suffer from this…
A Two-Minute Clip on Homosexuality Every Christian Should Watch – Sam Allberry’s speech at the Church of England’s General Synod this week has gone viral – and for good reason. Sam spoke openly and courageously, giving a perspective that doesn’t seem to have been heard on the Synod floor in quite the same way before.
