1. Russell Moore affirms the cosmic importance of Sunday School. It's something we often take for granted, but his account reflects the importance of investing time and resources into kids on a weekly basis.
2. Trevin Wax finished his PhD about a year ago. This brief post documents some of the considerations he would have looking back on starting the program. I think it's a pretty good summary of what folks should consider.
3. This video documentary highlights the strategy of Richard Spencer, a popular figure in the Alt-Right movement, to normalize White Nationalism. The video is presented without commentary or narration, but it reveals how a particular identity group is borrowing tactics from hard left identity groups (some of which are now considered mainstream) to normalize their activities. We need to be aware as media consumers.
4. Tim Keller is always worth listening to, reading, or watching. This podcast with the Mere Fidelity crew is fun, delightful, and informative. Well worth your time.
5. The horror of Aleppo is significant. Somehow we have lost track of it (it seems) because of our distraction with internal politics, but our proper reaction should be horror and sympathy, as Richard Stearns argues at the ERLC.
