It’s been a while since I shared some link love. Let me remedy that:

- Jim Gordon shares some good words from Nicholas Lash about teaching and learning.

- Christopher Brittain on ‘the real story of growth and decline in liberal and conservative churches’.
- The talks from Wheaton’s conference on Christian Political Witness are now up.

- Finally, tomorrow is Uncle Karl’s birthday. How are you planning to mark it?
