What are you pursuing in life? At the end of your life when you’ve achieved everything you set out to achieve, what will you have? What are you giving your life to?
I recently came across this illustration that challenged me to think about what I’m pursuing.
It’s been one year since we released this video, very simply titled: “The Story of Ian and Larissa.” The response was (and continues to be) stunning — over 1.5 million plays online from viewers around the world. But such impressive numbers only faintly echo the measure of grace in the lives of Ian and Larissa Murphy. And to mark the one-year anniversary of the video release, we wanted to reconnect with them for a quick update through this written interview.
“Because the human brain is the biological anchor of our psychological experience, it is helpful to understand how it operates.” says William M. Struthers, associate professor of psychology at Wheaton College. “Knowing how it is wired together and where it is sensitive can help us understand why pornography affects people the way it does.” Here are 9 things you should know about pornography affects the brain.
Westminster Books has a couple of terrific sales going on right now:
One of my favorite little books by Kevin DeYoung, Just Do Something, is on sale for $6.50 or $5.50 each when you buy five or more. Jon Nielson’s newly released Bible Study: A Student’s Guide is also on sale for $6.00 or $5 each when you buy five or more.
As you may have heard, a flood recently swept through Crossway’s headquarters. About two feet of water poured into our 32 first-floor offices due to unrelenting rains. The damage was extensive and repairs and rebuilding will take five or six months. You can see the damage here in this video.
More important, however, is the impact this could have on major ministry projects that we have planned.
As a not-for-profit ministry, Crossway is not only committed to publishing the ESV Bible and gospel-centered content, but also to providing God’s Word to hundreds of thousands of people overseas, either free or at a substantially reduced cost. Because of the recent flood, however, some of these international ministry efforts are now at risk.
