A wunderkammer of discoveries, compiled by Comment and illuminated for our readers' edification and entertainment. We do not necessarily endorse the external content below.
There are three great April events coming up for readers in three distinct areas. First, make sure to register for the Calvinism for the 21st Century conference, April 8-10 at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa. Second, Comment contributor Nancy Sleeth is part of a team putting together Blessed Earth, a worldwide simulcast on creation care, scheduled for 7:30 pm on Earth Day, April 21 from Northland Church in Orland, Florida. Visit the site for the film trailer. And third, our great friend Jedd Medefind is putting the finishing touches on the Christian Alliance for Orphans' Summit VI, slotted for April 29-30 in Minneapolis, and featuring music from Steven Curtis Chapman and a keynote by John Piper. What a lineup of events!
. . . Finally, another reminder of the most recent book from Hamilton poet John Terpstra, Skin Boat: Acts of Faith and Other Navigations, a frank and poetic reflection of faith and church in a secular era. The book came out last fall, and we think you should read it. Visit his publisher's site, www.gaspereau.com.
