If you follow tech news at all you know that Microsoft has been attempting to purchase Yahoo over the objections of Yahoo’s management/board. Yahoo has been resistant and recently implemented a short term deal with Google to display Google ads on Yahoo’s web properties, a move that many saw as an attempt to pressure Microsoft to up its bid (currently $31/share). The Wall Street Journal recently broke the news that Yahoo and AOL are discussing a merger as well, and apparently Microsoft and Time-Warner are discussing a deal that would join MSN, Yahoo, and MySpace. The final outcome of this extremely high stakes game of technological chess remains to be seen, but it seems likely that two or more of the Internet’s biggest properties will soon be combining forces. The question remains, “Which two?”
Most people have prayed for something or someone in earnest, seeking God’s will, only to be left confused by God’s response. Sometimes we ask, “Why would a good God allow bad things to happen to good people?” In Amazed and Confused, Heather Zempel tackles this question head-on by exploring the book of Habakkuk.
In Starting Small: The Ultimate Small Group Blueprint, Ben Reed helps you through the process of putting a small group ministry together. Through this book, you will discover how small groups can be a place where people belong so they can become.
Pastor Heather Zempel dives head first into the mess of community, drawing on 10+ years of experience on staff at NCC, a masters in biological engineering, and many attempts at intentionally creating community among small groups of people. I cannot recommend this book to you highly enough.
