Fortuitous Bouncing

Rose and I spent a few days at the Oregon coast earlier this week and we’re heading to Salem to spend time with my family this weekend. It has been my first vacation in about a year. I’ve loved every minute.

I was at the coast, so I don’t know for sure, but I don’t think Portland has seen rain in what is now 7 weeks and will likely be 8 weeks because the forecast is for wicked hot and sunny.

I didn’t spend much time reading blogs and news this week but here is some of what I ran across:

  1. How to get out of a devotional rut.
  2. Interesting article in The Wall Street Journal on the perils of “wanna-be” Christianity and church.
  3. Chris Brogan isn’t a Christian but he attended an online church service last weekend and shared some insightful things about it on his blog.
  4. Extremely sad story of a Christian aid organization that lost 10 people to the Taliban in Afghanistan last week. Love the title of this article about it though: “Darkness cannot put out the darkness.”
  5. Don Miller says that if you want to become the cream of the crop you have to read. Pretty simple right? I totally agree with him.
  6. Loved this spoof Twitter movie trailer.
  7. If you don’t get the joke, watch the real trailer of the upcoming movie about the beginning of Facebook.
  8. Interesting post connecting tattoos and spirituality.

For those of you in Portland, stay cool or find a home with a/c.
