Punchless Wild Ponder End to 6 Year Playoff Streak

As the Minnesota Wild crawled to the end of this fruitless season, there was no more fitting way to finish. Back-to-back blanks. The consecutive shutouts by Boston and Dallas gave the Wild a total of 11 games without a goal in 2018-19, pushing them to 27th in the NHL in scoring out of 31 teams. Their 210 goals were more than 100 fewer than league leader Tampa Bay, 40 fewer than they had in 2017-18 and their lowest total in five years. “If it’s not addressed, then we have problems,” said...

Wild Whip Rangers – Donato Tallies Two

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Ryan Donato scored two goals and Devan Dubnyk had 26 saves as the Minnesota Wild beat the New York Rangers 5-2 on Saturday night to stay in the thick of the playoff race. Eric Staal, Jared Spurgeon and J.T. Brown also scored for the Wild, who snapped a three-game losing streak that dropped them out of the final wild card in the Western Conference. Minnesota entered the day three points behind Phoenix for the last spot. It was the Wild’s second win in 11 home games. Minnesota W...

We Murder with Words Unsaid

Never have so few words haunted me so. In the dream, I sat in a balcony before the judgment seat of God. Two magnificent beings dragged the man before the throne. He fell in terror. All shivered as the Almighty pronounced judgment upon him. As the powerful beings took the quaking man away, I saw his face — a face I knew well. I grew up with this man. We played sports together, went to school together, were friends in this life — yet here he stood, alone in death. He looked at me with ...

He Knew Too Much to Stay: John Urquhart (1808–1827)

Just over two months ago, the world reeled from the news of a young man’s death on the shores of an isolated (and largely unknown) island in the Bay of Bengal. Suddenly, a nameless, faceless twentysomething from America confronted every home and major news outlet with the urgency of what Christians have termed the “Great Commission” since Jesus ascended from the Mount of Olives. CNN and The New York Times struggled to find language; the church in the West struggled to provide answers. It was a s...

Biographies for People Who Have Never Read a Biography

I n recent weeks I’ve encountered a number of people who have never read a biography. While there’s no law commanding the reading of biographies, there are certainly many good reasons to make them a regular part of a reading diet. Today I want to offer just a few suggestions and recommendations for people who are approaching biography for the first time, or for the first time in a long while. Three Tips I’ll begin with a few suggestions for getting started in biography. Firs...

The Reality of Sexual Abuse Hits Home: What Happened? What Do We Do Now?

A massive investigative report appeared in the Sunday editions of the Houston Chronicle and the San Antonio Express-News. The headline was direct — “20 years, 700 victims: Southern Baptist sexual abuse spreads as leaders resist reforms.” This article, the first of three, contains sophisticated investigative journalism as the team of reporters distills harrowing accounts of rampant sexual abuse in the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). The article reveals two chilling and horrifyi...

Wednesday with Michael Spencer: Thoughts on Weekly Communion

Wednesday with Michael Spencer Thoughts on Weekly Communion (2008) In June of last year, I began taking the Lord’s Supper weekly. I’d like to write about what this has meant to me, and to the community of worshiping Christians that I lead. My Southern Baptist tradition has been de-emphasizing the Lord’s Supper for a good deal of its recent history. This has not been so much intentional as it is the result of a weak ecclesiology (manifested in a loss of emphasis on church membership and church ...

especially for times like these: how to see through everything to what really is

C razy days with the winds changing from one direction to the other, ice rain in the woods and then the thaw and then the frigid cold and transitions happening everywhere — and they say God moves right into the neighbourhood — especially in times like ours. The Word, the Lord, moves right into the neighbourhood, moves right on into the house. (John 1:1) What are the chances that He’d move into me, get right up under my skin, so I can breathe through whatever comes in 2019? An old girl can hope?...

Devils Impeding Butcher’s Progression

Will Butcher was one of general manager Ray Shero’s prized free agent signings as New Jersey Devils’ GM. After opting to not sign with the Colorado Avalanche out of college, Butcher signed with the Devils in Aug. 2017 as an unrestricted free agent (UFA). He finished with 44 points in 81 games, the most for a Devils rookie defenseman since Scott Niedermayer in 1992-93. The hope was Butcher would continue that this season, but there have been some bumps in the road. His points totals are dow...

Should We ‘Make a Beeline to the Cross’? A Caution for Gospel-Centered Preaching

The death of Christ, two thousand years before you existed, purchased the presence of Christ in you today. Proclaiming Christ means making gloriously clear and beautiful all the implications of the blood-bought reality of Christ in you now. Texts that deal with how to experience this living Christ, and how to be transformed by him in the specific attitudes and behaviors of life, are in the Bible not to send us on a beeline to the cross. The cross is in the Bible to send us on a beeline to ...

All Was Bright That Awful Night: The Christmas Truce of 1914

Each soldier had a distinct family, laugh, voice, name, and soul. They were sons, fathers, husbands, brothers, fiancés. In another life, some had been clerks, shopkeepers, students, ministers, teachers. Beyond the heart’s capacity to reason, 6,046 were killed every day in the Great War — a war that lasted 1,566 days. If we gave each fallen soldier thirty seconds of silence, we would be sitting still for nine unbroken years. Unbroken — something that did not describe many of these men. A 19-...

With Gladness in Their Eyes: The Joy of Angels at the Birth of Christ

It’s easy to imagine what Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, or the Magi were thinking and feeling when they encountered the baby Jesus for the first time. I can imagine the mix of excitement, nerves, and expectation as they wondered when God would reveal the details of his plan and what kind of man this child would grow to be. But have you ever thought what the angels of Luke 2 were thinking and feeling? I hadn’t until I read Rev. C.H. Spurgeon’s sermon on Luke 2:14 titled “The First Christmas Carol...
