Top Ten Posts of 2022
We’re coming to the end of another year, so it’s traditional to give the run down of what was popular on the blog.
1. The Protests Which Divided Reformed Churches
Illegal protests in the streets? Nothing new under the sun.
2. Reformed = Anti-Revolutionary
What can we learn from Guido de Brès about the Christian’s relationship to a government with which he/she disagrees? This post includes a couple of newly translated paragraphs from a book by Guido de Brès, La racine.
3. Pastoral Q & A: Are More Prayers More Effective?
Does the Bible say anything about this question?
4. When You’re Up to Your Neck in Mud — Sing!
Some wisdom from a former US Navy SEAL.
5. More on Projectors in Worship
For some believers, projectors/screens in church buildings (for the worship services) are no-brainers. At our church, we use the screen as a digital liturgy board, but nothing more. Others use it for projecting songs, Bible readings, etc. I think that deserves second thought. So does Frank Ezinga.
I read Henry Kissinger’s latest on leadership this past year. This was a tidbit I gleaned from him.
7. What I Won’t Tell You If You’re Depressed
Depression is something I’m too familiar with. Here are some things not to say when you meet someone suffering in this way.
At our church (as at many other Reformed churches) we give a book as a gift to those making a public profession of faith. I’ve started including this beautiful bit of advice from John Bonar.
9. Two Medieval Misconceptions
What were Catholic churches like before the Reformation? How often did the laity participate in communion?
10. Blind Alec and His Amazing Memory
A story about an amazing child of God — and how Christians can be brutal and uncharitable.
