This past week, I shared the following links on social media and I think they’re worth sharing here too:

Interview with Reuben Bredenhof

My cousin has a new book out, Weak Pastor, Strong Christ. Reformers Bookcast caught up with him to discuss it.

The Communication Between Preacher and Congregant

David Qaoud: “Preaching is not a one-sided communication event but involves communication from both the preacher and church members. Let’s each do our part. If we do, the preacher will be blessed, the lay member will be edified, and God will receive glory.”

Loving People, Not Just the Idea of People

It’s easy to talk big about loving our neighbours, but it’s far more difficult to actually love individual neighbours.

Squid Game: Netflix’s new Korean drama is brilliant, revealing and dangerous

I’m always interested in hearing Christian analysis of trending stuff in popular culture. David Robertson offers up his thoughts on this new Netflix show. I haven’t watched this, but when I posted this on FB, one commenter remarked: “Don’t want to sound like some self-righteous prude but the show has explicit nudity based on reviews. Setting aside for the moment the level of violence, the sexually explicit content itself is a good reason to stay away from the show.” Another commenter said, “I tried to watch it last night and couldn’t get past the first 20 minutes or so because of the language and violence.”

Ortinel G — Truth

I’m currently in Western Australia. The other day I just discovered this Christian hip hop artist — and that he’s a Free Reformed bro. Ortinel is a member of one of our churches here in WA. In this video he’s rhyming against the lies of the prosperity gospel. The images link up with how that false teaching manifests itself in certain parts of the world.
