The official Ten-Code list for police communication lists 10-12 as “stand by (stop)”. I don’t know how to relate that to anything, but I figured it might help you win a trivia game someday.
Keep reading for all the best of the SBTS blogosphere from this week.
First up, who says that it’s business as usual for the North American Mission Board. Ed Stetzer (former NAMB staffer) says the new NAMB president “does not do things right.” You can be blessed by the whole story at this post on Ed Stetzer’s blog.
With all the attention paid last week to Timmy’s SBC posting, it is only fair that I provide you with a feast of different voices this week. First off, we have folks Blogging the Ordinances.
- Trevin blogged in support of open communion, and managed to keep the comments from degenerating into a flamewar.
- Geoff Baggett blogged about a recent baptism tailgate party. Of course, if someone’s grill caught fire, they could just call a baptismal firetruck over to put it out. Friends don’t let friends burn steak.
- The 9th & O Dean’s Class blog has a link to Dr. Moore’s commentary on the Christology in communion.
- Joseph Gould is in the process of careful consideration of Circumcision, Passover, Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper.
With the activities of recent weeks, the Roundup Redactor has gotten behind on his chapelblog linking. You’ll notice some of these links are not quite fresh, but like that leftover tuna casserole in the fridge, they’re still good. I’m sure that half-gallon of milk is still just fine. It’s in a light-block bottle, after all!
- Brother Hank over at The Journeymen posted on David Miller’s message of 9/20 (audio here)
- Will over at Ramblings… posted on Dr. York’s message of 9/18 (audio here)
- Terry Delaney, who has become one of the usual suspects in chapel blogging, posted on Dr. Moore’s message of 10/9 (audio) and the singing of the hymn, “It Is Well” during chapel on 10/10.
Other good blogging the Redactor was unable to categorize easily:
- Stephen Newell blogged on when it is wrong to be hospitable.
- Joshua Martin blogged on the pros and cons of bivocational ministry.
- Scott is not a “Calvinist.” Sure. And I am not a “blogger”. Doesn’t he know that you can smell a Calvinist from a mile away? Camouflage won’t help.
Good ol’ boys, never meaning no harm:
Owen has been his usual cerebral self. He posted on post-partum plastic surgery and what it tells us about our society, a song he really, really, really thought was neat-o, and a two-part series on the use of Halo 3 in Youth Group (Part 1, Part 2)
Brother Brister supplied us with a helpful recap of his blogging from last week, and has continued fleshing out his ideas on how the SBC can become more missional (Part 1, Part 2) He then put his money where his mouth is by starting a series on “Elemental” evangelism (Part 1, Part 2), and to round out a busy blogweek, he single-handedly solved the problem of cultural engagement, promoted what has every promise of being the most significant SBC related conference of our times, and then he asked Mark Driscoll a question.
Fig John Newton devotional series:
The Kummeropolis has been pouring his
heart instant coffee into S@S and just hasn’t posted much of note lately. I’m sure he’ll be starting a few more blogs before too long. Too bad my feed reader won’t pick up on it when he starts a new one.
