Kindle Deal of the Day: Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense by N. T. Wright. $3.99.

Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up, assuming that the reader has no knowledge of (and perhaps even some aversion to) religion in general and Christianity in particular.

Jonathan Howe - Superbowl Ads and What They Say about Us:

We have created two Americas: a noble, inspired America and a sophomoric, risque America. Sunday night’s latest installment of commercials seemed to have brought us to a new crossroads for both audiences and advertisers: will we point to the noble or race to the bottom?

Ministry Briefing - compiled by Todd Rhoades and Matt Steen:

Ministry leaders are inundated by content: some good, some junk. While we know that there is valuable content out there, we just don’t have the time to sift through it all. That’s why, each month, Todd Rhoades and Matt Steen sort through thousands of news items, blog posts, studies, and trends to create executive summaries of those that we believe are most valuable for church leaders. Use the code trevin for $3 off the February edition.

Diana Davis -  8 Ways to Celebrate Baptisms at Your Church:

When a new believer is baptized, it’s a momentous event. A life’s been changed for eternity! Try these fresh ideas to make baptism a true celebration…

Why Are Christians Such Bad Tippers?

Chuck Lawless – 10 Reflections on a Decade of Church Consulting:

I love the local church. It’s God’s church, despite its flaws. For ten years, I’ve had the privilege of consulting with churches seeking to grow. Here are my reflections of those years – one reflection for each year.

If you’re a pastor in a struggling church, be sure to read to the end.  I think you’ll find hope there.

    The article on Tipping from (I believe) Christianity Today misses the obvious point that most people attend church for social, business and other reasons that have nothing to do with a Christian’s worship of our Heavenly Father and his Son …
    It is impossible for us to sort out the real from the pseudo Christians, but that’s not our job to even guess at these things …
    But God will do the sorting “as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats …” Matt 25:32
    In the meantime properly reward your server with more than a smile and joyous sharing of the Good News …

    Carl Trueman linked to this article about the Super Bowl, prior to the event. It indicates that the issue is not just restricted to the commercials. While the linked article is interesting, I think the blinders are fairly heavy. I admit that I am slanted, I haven’t had the TV hooked up to more than a DVD player for more than 8 years.

    Women tend to be bad tippers and elderly people too. Maybe the better question would be “just who is a good tipper and why”?
