A few things around the web that caught my attention …
+ TIME Magazine writes about the spread of the house church movement.
+ churchrelevance.com summarizes a podcast with Gary Haugen of International Justice Mission. This guy’s involved in some powerful stuff. From the summary: “We can point [hurting people] to God through the way we live because the way we live – what it is we believe – is going to be manifested by the way we actually act.” Just another example of how the Christian life involves both proclamation and action.
+ And finally, a resource I’ve been loving. If you ever need to do a survey or have a sign up form (I use it for our small group ministry), check out wufoo.com. It’s an easy way to set up online forms. You get a few free ones (with a max of 10 fields), but they have pay options as well. Here’s an example of one I’ve been using. Just don’t fill it out unless you’re ready to lead a small group in Southern California!
