We all have them to one extent or another; sometimes they are a constant burden on our conscience, other times they are not but perhaps should be. Maybe it’s our fault, our perhaps theirs. Join us as we have a conversation about Broken Relationships and try and discover what we as Christians should do about them. The Basement Tapes are conversations among friends. We gather monthly to have a conversation on topics related to the good life. Pastors R.C. Sproul Jr. and Laurence Windham along with their friends and special guests enjoy a stimulating conversation on a wide variety of. . .

In the June issue of Every Thought Captive magazine we take a look at money. From, as in our norm, a variety of perspectives: debt, inheritance, gratitude, the tithe, stewardship, the poor, how we teach our children and so on. In addition to our feature articles we have your favorite Top Ten List, pictures of the good life, the always popular Hit and Run shorts, part two of Laurence Windham’s serial story, The Oc.cur.rence and more. A subscription to “ETC” is still just $25 and now it comes with ten packed issues per year. Subscribe here.
Creation, Recreation, and Economics: Why the Truth That God Owns Everything Changes Everything Christians are on both sides of the political fence, some arguing we should keep what is ours, others arguing just for the state to redistribute “our” wealth. Both sides miss the most fundamental economic reality- God owns everything. Exploring themes from his teaching series “Economics for Everybody,” Dr. RC Sproul, Jr., will explore what the Bible tells us about work, wealth, and the world.
When I listened to a review copy of Dan and Karen Vitco’s CD, I thought, Wow, these people actually put the first five questions of the Children’s Shorter Catechism to music. That’s creative. I wonder if they will explain it after the talk starts. But there was no talk. I was astonished to find that the entire CD is the Children’s Shorter Catechism set to music! Teach Them the Faith (Gemstone Music, 2009) by the Vitcos is approximately forty-five minutes long and contains all 145 questions with Karen singing the questions and a children’s choir responding with the answers to guitar and keyboard accompaniment.

The Opportunity for Relationship and Discipleship You’ve heard about family –based education (commonly called homeschooling or home discipleship). Many families have seen the disintegration of family relationships over the last few decades and responded by integrating relationship and character into their home and their children’s lives. But what about the 80% or more of real life not directly connected to classroom learning? What about your family’s work, your budget, your finances, your higher education and vocational training, your health care, your inheritance, and your overall financial vision? Does your family have a unified, integrated vision for where you will be. . .

Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. exhorted Christians to preach the foolishness of Christ crucified to this world and to stand boldly against modern evils such as abortion. The gospel is offensive and therefore we preach knowing that we will be hated for the sake of Christ. http://www.ligonier.org/blog/day-2-2013-national-conference/
Dr. Sproul has been invited to speak on the subject of Biblical Economics at the New Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Saturday, February 2nd. Admission is free of charge. http://newpres.org/economics-for-everybody
We are inviting ten couples to come for three days of intense conversation, as well as a great deal of fun. The camp is held at the home of Highlands Ministries President, Eric Owens, in Bristol, Virginia. Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. will be your teacher. We will not only talk about how to be a kingdom-building, King-serving family, but we will talk about it in the context of such families. We will follow three distinct but related areas of inquiry: the biblical view of the family, the sovereignty of God, and the unstoppable spread of the Kingdom of God. Click here. . .

In the sunday school classrooms in which I taught years ago, each weekly lesson had a main idea that we repeated over and over. Platitudes such as “God loves me,” “I am special to God,” and “We are kind to one another” filled the teacher’s manual. Curiously, we did not see “God is angry at the wicked every day.” Unfortunately, twentieth century American Christians more often take our cues from Frobel and Montessori than from the Word of God. If we are to train up a generation of God-fearing Christians, we must change both the methods and content of what. . .

It is with great sadness that I inform you that RC’s daughter Shannon died last night. The family would cherish your prayers for them during this difficult time. We, however, rejoice that she, like her mother Denise, is now fully and forever healed. Eric Owens
