Our Morning “Briefing”

One of my favorite parts of our morning routine is when CJ and I grab our coffee and sit for ten minutes on our tiny enclosed patio, listening to Albert Mohler’s podcast “The Briefing.” Each morning, Dr. Mohler provides biblical commentary on the latest news in politics and culture. I don’t know of another commentator who daily offers such an insightful, prescient, theological perspective on current events. The Briefing is informative and enlightening and equips me to think, pray about, and talk to others—especially non-Christians—about current events in a winsome and biblical manner. If I had teenagers at home The Briefing would be a mandatory part of their day—although Dr. Mohler is so engaging and interesting I doubt I would need to require it! Today Dr. Mohler provided 7 suggestions for watching the Presidential Debate, and I look forward to catching his program tomorrow to benefit from his biblical analysis.

Here at girltalk we are always excited to pass along great resources, and this is one of the best. I hope all the girltalk readers and their families will make The Briefing a part of their morning routine.

SGC of Louisville: First Sunday

2012 at 7:24 am   |   by Nicole Whitacre Filed under Biblical Womanhood | Gospel

“It is by the grace of God that a congregation is permitted to gather visibly in this world to share God’s Word and sacrament. Not all Christians receive this blessing….Therefore, let him who until now has had the privilege of living a common Christian life with other Christians praise God’s grace from the bottom of his heart. Let him thank God on his knees and declare: It is grace, nothing but grace, that we are allowed to live in community with Christian brethren.” ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Listen to the first sermon from our first Sunday at Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville: A Pregnant Prelude:Philippians 1:1-2

“The Triune God initiating and accomplishing salvation through and in Christ is the predominate theme of Philipiians; and by the grace of God it will be the predominant theme of Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville. This will be the gloriously predictably theme of our Sunday meetings. This will be the gloriously redundant theme present in every message we have the privilege to preach in this church: the gospel of Jesus Christ and him crucified.” ~CJ Mahaney
