Here are some of the blog posts that have come up in my google reader over the last week or so that I’ve found helpful. Hope you do as well.
Resolved 2010 was held in June at Grace Community Church (where John MacArthur is the senior pastor). Speakers include Steve Lawson, Rick Holland, Al Mohler, C.J. Mahaney & John MacArthur. I’ve just added the messages in the media center. Anyone interested they can be found here
For those who may do a bit with websites: I have just written and released a component for Joomla called preachit. This component is a dynamic component for organising and displaying your church sermon library. It has built in functionality for mp3 upload, itunes podcasts and it integrates seamlessly with Vimeo & Youtube video and Jcomments comment system. Visit the demo here
You can download preachit and the ‘latest message’ module here and support is found @ the forum here.
Preachit is currently in beta release. It has had a good test so far, but I would not claim it is completely bug free.
The Kaiser Family Foundation in the US has brought out some new figures concerning media and children/teenagers. It makes interesting reading.
Al Mohler has picked out some of the striking data and makes some helpful comments here
In Britain, Autumn means rain, rain and more rain. That means I’ve had some free time to play with websites. Result: a new design for truthengaged that makes it easier to see what’s new on the homepage. Hope you like it?
Reading Justin Taylor’s blog this morning I’ve discovered that several sermons by Tim Keller at Redeemer are now being made available online for free.
Redeemer’s Sermon Ministry has been faithfully recording, cataloging and reproducing all of our sermons for the past 20 years. To celebrate all 20 years of our history, and to meet the growing demand for our church’s teaching in New York City and around the world, we have created this resource of 150 sermons and lectures covering a broad array of topics, completely free to download and share.
The recordings chosen for the Free Sermon Resource were culled from classic sermon series as well as lectures and seminar addresses delivered to various Redeemer ministry gatherings, and are intended to present to the listener the full scope of teachings they would receive over several years of active involvement at Redeemer.
