Eyes on the Prize (Philippians 3:4-14) Sunday School Lesson

What can we brag about? Kids often like to tell stories about themselves or boast over things they have done. It is easy, at a young age, to be self-centered and have focus on their own experiences. In this lesson from Philippians 3:4-14, children will learn it’s not our own power we should brag about. The only thing we have at the end of the day is Jesus, and we want to make sure He is our first and foremost focus. Jesus … the One Thing Worth Bragging About ...

7 Signs That You’re a Cage-Stage Calvinist

This week the blog is sponsored by The Good Book Company. C alvinism is a beautiful thing—when we Calvinists don’t ruin it. For too long Calvinism has been linked to arrogant, fiery, and argumentative Calvinists who seem like the only cure for their cruelty is time in a steel cage. Diagnosis? A Cage-Stage Calvinist. A Cage-Stage Calvinist is someone who has learned TULIP—the five points of Calvinism—and goes on a relational rampage. They attack, bludgeon, and judge their broth...

J.D. Greear’s Address to SBC Executive Committee Last Monday Night, 2/18/19

Members of the Executive Committee and fellow Southern Baptists, I hope you guys are doing great. It’s been a nice, quiet season for me, so I’m just grateful to be here. When I got nominated to be SBC President, I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect. I told a lot of people that in some ways I felt like the proverbial dog that had caught the school bus–spent all that time barking, “now what?” I knew there was a lot I needed to learn, and only a fool jumps forward in confidence when he should sit ...

Losing your voice in curling is a skip's worst nightmare

SYDNEY, N.S. — It's one of the quirky parts of the roaring game that casual observers find most amusing — skips yelling at their sweepers to "hurry hard."But for as many jokes made about all the yelling and screaming in curling, it's a pivotal part of the game and strategy.It quickly becomes a skip's worst nightmare when their vocal chords start giving out on them and screams turn into squeals.That exact scenario happened to Nova Scotia skip Jill Brothers this week at the Scotties...

After her boyfriend, Derwin Davis (Pooch Hall, “Ray Donovan”), gets drafted as the new third-string wide receiver for the San Diego Sabers, Melanie discovers her role is much more than supporting her beau from the sidelines.

The Voice of an Angel: A Tribute to Valerie Carter

None Although she sometimes balked at being the center of attention, the late Valerie Carter had a singing voice destined to thrust her into the glare of the spotlight, whether or not she sought it. Although other backing-vocalist powerhouses have, in recent years, garnered more attention (most notably via the 2013 documentary, 20 Feet From Stardom by which Carter was, inexplicably, ignored), Carter was the equal of legends like Merry Clayton when it came to demand for her talent.

Sunday School Lesson (1 Corinthians 1:18-31) Wisdom & Power of God

Wisdom is Foolishness and Weak Becomes Strong…How the message of the cross goes against traditional ideas… As Christians, we know that our value is in much different things than what the world tends to judge as important. Sometimes we want to brag or think that our faith is our own doing. But the Bible makes it clear that God lifts up those who are weak and brings low those who seem strong. This Sunday School lesson emphasizes that our identity, worth, and boasting are in Christ alone. Lesson fo...

Who among us likes suffering and punishment? No...

Who among us likes suffering and punishment? None, I presume. In the first reading, we hear, “The Lord trains the ones He loves and punishes the ones He acknowledges as His sons.” It is true that God can sometimes be exacting and hard on us, but didn’t He allow His only Son to die on the cross for us? A true disciple of Jesus knows that sufferings are necessary to test one’s faith and love for God. It is also true we are often not able to cope, but God in His mercy will raise us up from our fail...

Jazz Today: Take 6 at 30—Still in Sweet Harmony

None The members of Take 6 come down the stairs at New York's Blue Note jazz club in November of 2018, wireless microphones in hand and creating a complete orchestra of funk with their voices as they walk. They're having fun. Alvin Chea's resonant bass thumps and leaps as vocal percussion clips and whooshes. They slide through a narrow aisle, brushing the backs of fans sitting at tables as they smile and then ease up onto a stage set with six stools and, almost an afterthought, a couple of keyb...

The 60 Best Songs of 2018

She took her string-drenched highlight from that record "Slow Disco" and, while touring, turned it into an amped-up dance number, discovering that underneath all the opulence, it was a fist-...

Report: Sixers want first rounder, have shot down multiple trades for Markelle Fultz

Teams have reportedly been asking around about Fultz, and there have even been some denials about which teams are interested in the young guard. This week Candace Buckner published an excellent profile of Fultz and some potential issues caused for him by an over-domineering inner circle. While the Sixers pledge to support their player in his recovery process and are believed to have a relationship with Brothers and Fultz’s inner circle, the organization has been protective in its own way.

Brothers charged in death of man wrapped in duct tape

TERRYTOWN, La. (AP) — Two brothers have been indicted on charges that they suffocated a Louisiana man by wrapping him in duct tape. Times-Picayune reports 40-year-old Saleh Omar and 18-year-old Yazan Omar were charged Thursday with second-degree murder in the death of 29-year-old Mohamed Mezlini.

The 10 Best Country Albums of 2018

None No contemporary music genre gets dumped on like country. Despite country's widespread popularity, the common critical argument is that modern country, at least whatever gets played on the radio, is often like fast food: It's taste-tested, mass-produced, and predictable; it goes down easy, and all of it is identical in flavor. Indeed, it is true that a big majority of country radio is made up of interchangeable white male singers: You would be forgiven for not knowing the difference between...
