Five Star Links

Each Friday, we share links we found especially interesting or inspiring during the previous week. 


5 Minutes in Church History is one of my favorite podcasts. Here's an interesting episode about Perpetua and Felicitas, two early Christian women who were martyred for their faith.


Karl Vaters discusses "6 Important Differences Between Performance Music and Worship Music"  It contains good points but also generates more questions. My first question is how does the us of "worship teams" with multiple people on a platform as the centre of attention make the risk of performance greater than a more minimalist approach.


I appreciate Pastor Sam Powell's posts. This is from Good Friday of last week but worth contemplating any day - Ye Who Think of Sin But Lightly...
How bad is our sin? Our sin is so bad that the only solution was the death of the Son of God. He who is perfect innocence, infinite love, immaculate beauty, pure and undefiled goodness….the one who cried out with tears in Gethsemane “If you are willing, take this cup away from me”. But the cup would not be taken away, because it is the only way that sinners can stand before God. His compassion and obedience were perfect, for he is true and righteous man. And his power is infinite, for he is true God. “Not my will, but thine be done.”
