Supernews continues it’s hilarious commentary on Twitter. This made me laugh really hard (watch for the Fail Whale).
From Matt Chandler’s message Preaching the Gospel to the De-churched at Advance 09:
“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

Two days ago, Compassion International saw its one millionth sponsored child. In honor of that, I’d invite you to see what pastors say about Compassion.
If you want to sponsor a child, do so at compassion.ca
The other day, IamSecond.com launched:

Totally random, but I got a kick out of this today:
The Gospel Coalition’s 2009 conference messages are now online. Give them a listen as you can’t go wrong with Tim Keller, John Piper, and more.
Guest blogger Josh Harris provides us with the essentials of cheesy Christian pop lyrics at Abraham Piper’s blog. The comments are even better than the actual list (check out Abraham’s song in comment 7).
I am not here to beat the drum of Mark Driscoll, but it would sadden me to see people disregard his ministry for inappropriate comments and occasionally taking things further than Scripture permits. His ministry is gospel-centered as he always points people to the cross. As you and I would say, he is ‘Our Kind of Calvinist.’ He is theologically and missionally as solid as anyone I know.
I caught the Twitter bug while watching all the hip cool marketing folks at ad:tech this week. Next week I might write haikus.

And in honour of this, I once again (ironically) present, The Twouble with Twitter:
So our plane was delayed by an hour and we missed our flight home on Friday night. Right now, Adam, John and I are sitting in a sketchy sports bar waiting for something to eat at midnight (we’re still running on Pacific time). Our new flight leaves at 9:50 am and we’re all looking forward to seeing our wives and sleeping in our own beds.
Since there won’t be much else to post here due to the travel schedule, enjoy a good word from our friend Matt Chandler:
