Welcome to The Weekly Nerd! It’s November 1st, 2018, and my mom is coming to visit in a couple of weeks. Can’t wait!

On The Blog: The Monday Morning Mess! Be warned! You might come out messy 😉

Check out the new version of Logos Bible Software, Logos 8. So far, I am liking it and it is profitable for everyone, not just pastors and seminarians. Seriously, check it out! (disclaimer: I am NOT getting anything from Logos for posting this here!)

Today’s Top Tale

An Explanatory Lord’s Supper
Tim Challies often posts about his church’s liturgy, so when I saw this on the Lord’s Supper, I jumped all over it! It’s a great read and a great example! Thank you! I love these posts that he does.

Pastors: Preach, Don’t Rant
“Any preacher can rant, and too many preachers do. But God’s men are called to preach. To this end, make sure your sermon is grounded in the authority of Scripture, delivered with compassion as well as passion, and that you point your people beyond a subject, to the object of making their joy complete by glorifying Christ.”

I normally don’t put things so politically polarizing on my blog, however, I chose this article not because I support Justice Kavanaugh, but because I support justice, and deliberately withholding information is not justice, it perverts it. We need to be wary of what we read on the internet and hear on the news, regardless of the source. Be careful out there.

Falling Asleep In Two Minutes
I need to try this.

Why Should We Pray If God Has Planned All Things?
This is a great answer to a great question.
