NEW FEATURE: Each weekday I will be asking a simple question related to theology or technology. Feel free to post an answer in the comments section (Facebook or the site itself). There will also be an article or two related to the question.
- How old must a child be before coming to the Lord’s Table? — This is an important issue. Written by Dr. R.Scott Clark.
- The seminary that I graduated from is now on Tumblr. Take a look! You should especially read this article.

- Technology Tip: NOTE: Each Friday I will offer some “tech tips” on various topics. This week: Using Pocket. Pocket is a great tool to have around. There are many good articles on the internet, and the big challenge is what to do with all of this information. My practice is to use Pocket whenever I find something worth keeping. Pocket is free (there is also a premium version). Once you sign up, you can begin collecting articles, etc. As you save them, I suggest you tag them so you can find them later.
- This stained glass time lapse is cool.

- Perhaps the highest and loftiest acts a Christian can have toward God are worship and prayer. These two acts are uniquely vertical – they are the only things a believer does that are directly toward God and that directly bring him or her into relationship and communion with God. The one exception is the reading of Scripture, but that is a means to bring us to worship and prayer. All other aspects of the Christian life are horizontal – they are outward toward others. Worship and prayer are uniquely God-centred. They deal with God alone and bring us to him relationally. — Read the full article by Mark Tomlinson here.
