It has been too long since I last published a post! I spent the past week checking out Central Seminary, and taking their free intro course called Knowing and Loving God which was taught by Dr. Kevin Bauder. I can assure you, his sense of humor and amiable nature contrast sharply with his quite serious photograph, though I give him full marks for an excellent start to what could end up as an epic mustache. If you don’t know of Central or Dr. Bauder yet, I recommend you get to know them. Dr. Bauder writes a weekly Friday blog called In the Nick of Time which I recommend. And Central is a small seminary committed to the glory of God and the good of His church. I heartily support them.
All of this to say, it’s been a while since I’ve had the time to sit down and write. However, I came across some great articles today thanks to Pastor Michael Riley, of Calvary Baptist Church in Wakefield, Michigan (You’ll have to forgive him, he’s a Tigers fan and occasionally uses his blog platform to discuss trivial matters like Major League Baseball. A more spiritual man would write about the Stanley Cup Playoffs or beef brisket). He sends out a weekly e-mail to his congregation with resources like these linked, and he’s been kind enough to add me to that e-mail list so that I can lift his material with greater ease. The first three below are from him.
