Wow, there's a lot going on this week. Jim Winkler, the general secretary of the General Board of Church and Society, has released an editorial condemning state-sponsored gambling (aka lotteries). This is a much needed article, and Jim does a nice job making his case. I may disagree with GBCS on some other issues, but I fully support them on this.
Charismatic Bible teacher Joyce Meyer has added her name to the list of evangelicals who don't support Uganda's controversial Anti-Homosexuality Bill. With even religious leaders who don't approve of homosexuality saying this bill is a bad idea, how is it not dead yet?
Arrest the Pope? Are they really serious?
I knew basketball was invented at a YMCA, but I had no idea that it was meant to be an evangelism tool. Thanks, Chuck Colson, for the info.
Speaking of sports, I've never taken the opportunity to plug the book Kneeling in the End Zone by Methodist blogger Josh Tinley. So I'm doing it now. Go buy it at Cokesbury, check out their new site, use the promo code Thanks and get 5 bucks off. Josh will love you for it, and so will Cokesbury.
