 In trying to be helpful, many churches have failed, because they have failed to be truthful. They have failed not out of hardness of heart, or lacking of kindness, but in thinking that they are more merciful than God. I shudder to think about how much more rigorous, painful, and dangerous, and difficult my conversion would have been had it taken place in 2016. Rigorous, painful, dangerous, and difficult both for me personally and for my church. … Especially today the PCA is smitten in a stupid way, I’m using a hard word, very stupid way and to their shame, to the gay Christian movement. — Dr. Butterfield.

  • I love the game of chess and have watched Garry Kasparov play many matches.  I only wished I lived closer to St. Louis to watch in person. By the way, I play many correspondence games on chess.com.  My username is mdivman if you want to look me up, friend me, and play live or correspondence games. Chess.com is free, but there are premium options as well. They hold many live and correspondence tournaments as well. Great place to play!
  • Each month I attempt to send out a newsletter of news, prayer requests, and praise reports.  At times, I do a video report. If you are interested in receiving it, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page. At most, you will receive 1-2 emails a month.  

The Daily Roundup is published Mon-Fri.  See you next week!

  • I use IFTTT all the time. I have recipes created for inbound and outbound SMS messages that log the entire text of every message to a Google spreadsheet.  If I accidentally delete an important message, I can easily retrieve it from my spreadsheet. I also have a Twitter log of tweets sent and others that I favorite. It is an outstanding service that will automate many tasks you are probably doing manually. This CNET article highlights a few, but you will want to check out the website for much more.
