Eclectica: Acts 29 || Driscoll news

This edition of The Eclectic Web is a quick collection of links related to breaking news regarding the action of the Acts 29 network expulsion of Mark Driscoll from its membership. While Acts 29 and Driscoll are not connected with us in any way, many who read our material also read and/or are influenced by teachers in that circle. As such, these links are news of interest and we would like to draw your attention to them. One link is a personal blog, contains highly biased material, so should be read discerningly. It does seem pertinent to the issue, so we include it here.
