Our college ministry, Collegiate Reformed Fellowship, is sponsoring a big event next month. Sam Allberry, author of Is God Anti-gay?, will be speaking at the University of Idaho on Wednesday March 5th at 7:30pm. His story is one of God’s goodness in the midst of same sex attraction, and is a powerful testimony for those needing encouragment in the face of this temptation.
Here is a short promo video:
The Facebook event is here:
And a short interview with Sam on LivingOut.org:
The photo above is the Canon Press/Logos Press warehouse, a place, as you can clearly see, of haunting beauty. So let me tell you about something that is going on in there.
So this particular installment of Education Thursday is addressed to administrators and board members of classical Christian schools. I know you are out there — I have been to a bunch of your schools. Nobody is making this up.
Last year Logos Press test drove this particular service with a few schools, and we trust that the bugs are now deceased. The service I am speaking of is called Sole Source. Let me mention the benefits first. This service will save you and your staff in two areas — it will save you headaches, and it will save you money. This thing is simple and it brings savings.
You can now see the trailer for Mercy Rule over in my sidebar. I can honestly say that if you schedule this for your family movie night, you will have an edifying blast together. I don’t go in for spoilers here, but I will say that there is an A story and a B story — the A story is the father’s battle with the bad guys who are trying to shut down his business, and the B story has to do with the son’s desire to pitch for his team. The two stories wend their way together by the end in quite a satisfying way. And I should say that the way I came into having seen it already is that Nate was the screenwriter for it. If you like his turn of mind when it comes to story-telling, you will like this.
I will say more about this later, but let me say now that here is a movie for the whole family you really ought to check out. It is called Mercy Rule, and here is a link that explains how to get it. I have seen it — it really is fantastic. Make sure to check out the trailer at the link.
We are thrilled to announce that NSA has hired Tim Edwards as Fellow of Theology, to be joining us here in Moscow by next fall. After Peter Leithart moved to Birmingham to work with Trinity House, the college had quite a challenge replacing someone of Peter’s stature. We are really excited about God’s kindness to us in making this possible.
For more details, you can read the press release from the college below.
For those of you who downloaded the earlier version of the DW app, you can get the update now. And if you haven’t done so, then now would be the time to do it the first time.
Many of you have noticed the DW icon off in the right sidebar. In fact, 901 of you have downloaded it. This icon is the mobile app for this blog, and enables you to receive push notifications and such. This paragraph is what you might call a service announcement. Starting this evening, that service will not be functional for around 3 days. At the end of that time, it will be back in the saddle, newer and fresher, and with lots of different code in it. Thanks for your patience.
For those in the Moscow area, the college bookstore at New St. Andrews is throwing a big sale this coming Saturday from 10 to 2, with clearance books and clothes and some great discounts. This includes 50% off clearance clothes, 25% off NSA gear, and buy-one-get-one-50%-off clearance books.
