Unceasing Worship, part 1

Posted: 28th September 2007 by ElShaddai Edwards in Uncategorized

I’ve received a copy of Harold Best’s book Unceasing Worship: Biblical Perspectives on Worship and the Arts and have begun to read as I can on the bus to and from work. I’m hoping to post thoughts here as I make my way through it; not really a “book report” per se, but more my […]

Today’s song was prompted by John Hobbins, who recently posted on marriage as a model of the relationship of God with his people as it is meant to be. This is in advance of a marriage he is officiating this weekend: “How did a TULIPy Waldensian pastor get asked by a flaming Pentecostal couple about […]

So far, no sign of the pox. After being exposed two weeks ago, the boys both have colds, but no pox. Hopefully we’re in the clear! We reached a milestone this weekend – for the first time in 3 1/2 years, we bought just one kind of milk at the store. Sam’s allergies had meant […]

Be sure to swing by Better Bibles and read about Wayne Leman’s current project, which is a hypothesis about a correlation between Bible translation style preferences and recognized personality traits, specifically the Myers-Briggs (MBTI) type indicators. He’s provided links to an online test by MyPersonality.info – 75 multiple-choice questions, if I recall correctly. Sounds more […]
