Random Stuff for the Week of 7/29-8/4

(Is it August already?!!!) * Found out this past week that Rick Ousley has resigned from The Church at Brookhills. Quite disappointing. When I was a student at the University of Mobile, I used to travel home on the weekends often and would schedule it such that I would arrive in Birmingham around 7:00 for the Friday evening service there. From student conferences to collegiate conferences to hanging out in the foyer after church, I have grown to really appreciate this man. I am sure that The Church in Brookhills will miss him greatly. * One of the craziest guys I know has to be Jeremy Wells. You can find a few pics of him on my flickr page from Taylor's wedding. When he came to our wedding two years ago, he was the long-snapper at Auburn University. He then became cheerleader and has just recently graduated with an MBA there. His website is just hilarious. You ought to check it out for some funny reading. * If you have ever wanted to listen or download some good sermons (especially if you have a long drive-time or take road trips), you might want to consider checking out Biblical Preaching. All the recent sermons of great expositors such as John Piper and R. Kent Hughes, Pastor of Wheaton College Church in Wheaton IL. You can also get Piper's sermon manuscript each week online (he is going through the book of Romans and is currently on chapter 13; he has been in Romans I think for the past 4 years). * Another really good resource that I have grown to appreciate is the ministry of Mark Dever called IX Marks (nine marks). There is a wealth of resources including articles, book reviews, book recommendations, audio downloads, etc. Dever is especially known for his attention to ecclesiology and church life. He is the pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington D.C. Hope everyone has a great week. And by the way, for all you newbies coming on lately, thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon! - t.n.b.
