Today is my day in the collaborative 40 Day (Blog) Fast, round 2. If you’ve been following the fast, thanks for stopping in. I’m touched by the nature of changing the world this way. What a small thing it is for me to fast and pray for a day, yet collaboratively God may be pleased to use this in sweeping change in the world for his renown.

The ministry that shares the Gospel and cares for physical needs that I’d like to draw your attention to is the Christian Veterinary Mission USA. Now I have never been on a trip with them, or even been to a seminar or conference. But my father in law is a veterinarian and has made me aware of their work.

The exciting piece is that sustainable healthy living in 3rd world communities can be brought about in part through the foundation of healthy and productive livestock. In fact, Jared Diamond in his popular Guns, Germs, and Steel argues that the technological and political primacy of Europe during the last several centuries is directly related to available crops and domesticatable livestock being available to that region for the last several thousand years.
A sustained shift out of crippling poverty and famine in the third world through healthier livestock, in Jesus name – that’s a group we need to support.

If you are interested in the Iraqi rebuilding/security effort, here’s a cool article you should read.

The Sacred Sandwich is advertising the new Pirates of the Magisterium.

This reminds me of 2 things:

1. If you’ve never tasted the biting sarcasm of the Sacred Sandwich, you should do so here.

2. I’ve seen some other pirates about recently… but they’re the kind that affirm Sola Scriptura.

Read it.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve throughly enjoyed Unashamed Workman’s “Ten Questions for Expositors” series. You should check it out! Here is a list of those he interviewed so far.

Voddie Baucham

Excerpt from Baucham,

7. What are the greatest perils that preacher must avoid?

Laziness, pride and the fear of men. Laziness will keep us from plumbing the depths of the Word. Pride will keep us from prayer, and the fear of men will keep us from preaching the hard things.
