Random Stuff for Week of 5/17-5/23

1. I just heard from my uncles yesterday that the pope's car was sold on E-Bay. Sure enough it was true! He had a 1999 Voltzwagon Golf with around 46,000 miles on it, and it sold to a casino owner for $244,000! Ironically, the pope never actually drove it (because he did not have a driving permit), and the man who bought it just a day earlier bought Britney Spear's pregnancy test and previously purchased Mary on the grilled cheese sandwich. Talk about a holy roller! 2. Coming to Louisville in April of 2006 is one of the best conference line-ups I have ever seen. The conference is called Together for the Gospel. It is being hosted by none other than Mark Dever (IX Marks Ministries), Ligon Duncan, C.J. Mahaney (author of The Cross-Centered Life and Christ our Mediator), and Albert Mohler (Southern Seminary's President). Special guets include John MacArthur, John Piper, and R.C. Sproul. Are you kidding me??!!! The date is April 26-28, 2006. What is even more amazing is that it is only $125! If you would like to come, let me know and maybe I can hook you up with lodging accomodations (stay with my wife and me if you like!). 3. Discipleship Journal has a great one-year Bible reading program that is recommended by many. If you are interested in reading the Bible in one year, I encourage you to check this plan out. You may be one to help end the famine in our land. 4. One of the greatest encouragements to me in my devotional life has been a book called The Valley of Vision. It is a collection of Puritan poems and writings that are immeasurably rich and real for the believer. The author is Arthur Bennet and is published by Banner of Truth. It sells on BAMM for $10.05, or you can get a leather hardcover version for $15.74. This book is well worth and soon the prayers then will soon become your prayers now.
