Here’s a very cool visu­al­iza­tion project. Brad Thomas imported the NIV text1, one book at a time, with a cloud tool at Wordle.net. The result­ing images allow us to exam­ine word fre­quency. The larger the word, the more often it appears in that book of the Bible. This video walks through all sixty-six result­ing images. […]

There’s some won­der­ful ser­mons1 that are dig­ging into the teach­ings of Christ, as recorded in Matthew, chap­ter five. And he opened his mouth and taught them, say­ing: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the king­dom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be com­forted.

Pretty shock­ing isn’t it? Takes […]

I ‘m so grate­ful for the sup­port and encour­age­ment that is pro­vided for us in one of the great­est insti­tu­tions ever estab­lished by our God — the local church.
