30 Days of Prayer for Muslims — Here’s a 30-day prayer guide, corresponding to the 30 days of Ramadan, which began yesterday.

Does God Want Me To Be Happy? — Mark Altrogge answers this question.

Teens Want More Than Pizza — A call for youth pastors to finally give up on the attractional model of youth ministry that became so popular in the 90’s.
