One of the great things about working full time is how wonderful days off are. I try to take Fridays and Saturdays off (doesn’t work out that way all the time though), and it is truly amazing how great a day with no agenda can be after 5 busy days in a row.
For those of you who would like to console me over the Vikings…I don’t want to go there.
- Tim Keller has a helpful review on The Shack.
- Shane Claiborne on leadership and friendship.
- Ryan Guard has some great thoughts on the numbers-driven problem we have in church ministry.
- Don Miller: “Knowledge makes a secure man humble” (great post from Don).
- What to ask a seminary rep when you are looking at schools.
- Not only is Mark Batterson a wise man…so was his father in law.
- Michael Hyatt on the 8 mistakes people make on Twitter.
- How iPhone apps saved a man’s life in Haiti.
- Challenging the stories that the media is sharing in Haiti.
- Pictures showing the glacial meltdown that has occurred in recent history.
- The most egregious photo retouching with Photoshop of the past decade. Unbelievable.
I’ll leave you with a quote from Martin Luther that I came across this week:
This life, therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed.
Grace and peace to you this weekend.
