Today we start what we hope will be a worthwhile weekly feature. Each Friday we plan to post a few links to material that we believe is worth your time to read. Material that in a variety of ways will help us glorify and enjoy God forever and encourage and equip us as we seek to Praise God, Love People, and Proclaim Christ, all while Praying in the Spirit. (As with the quotes included in our Reflection each week, the inclusion of links to various articles does not mean we endorse everything written by the author or even necessarily agree with everything in the linked article, but we do think it's worth reading and thinking about with discernment.)
