Big Words, Small Summaries: Five End-Time Views

In my post from yesterday I revealed the informal results from a casual Sunday survey I conducted recently about end times. And I suspect those who whom I unintentionally frustrated with the survey may have been equally irritated with the post, mainly because I still didn’t provide a synopsis of the various views. Well, at […]

It’s STATurday: Numbers on Multisiting

This is the second installment of InkLink’s new weekend feature, a Saturday-only post that will center on statistics.

Q Zone: How do I …

The “little k” and “Big K” application from Sunday generated some good feedback from our faith family, one being this question: How do I personally measure “little k’s” vs. the “Big K’s” in my life? (To understand the context of this question, listen to the message here.) Here are two words that help me steer this boat: Mandates and motives! […]
