Each week, there are hundreds upon thousands of blog posts written by people all over the world. I find myself each week, reading several of them. I have taken the time to link to some of my favorite blog posts or news stories from around the blogosphere from this previous week. I hope maybe one or two of these will be an encouragement to you.
- Why I Hate Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (and Why I Love It Too) by Russell Moore. I really appreciate his heart on the matter of human life. If you have never read his book, Adopted for Life, let me take this opportunity to encourage you to read it. You will never be the same.
- Get Ready to be Lance Armstrong's God by Mark Driscoll. He has a very interesting take on the truth finally being told by Lance Armstrong and the response by people. Its a great opportunity for him to share a bit from his new book on identity.
- Why We Need Plumbers--And Pastors by Drew Dyck. And very helpful reminder that anyone can serve Jesus.
- What Pastors Shouldn't Tell Their Wives by R. Scott Clark. There has been a very helpful dialogue happening through some blogs on how much pastors should or shouldn't tell their wives. It seems to have began when Megan Hill wrote, "What Your Pastor Tells His Wife About You." Fascinating thoughts. As for me, I tend to lean mostly towards Clark's article. I tell Monique only what she absolutely needs to know and only on areas that I know she can help minister to other women.
- 9 Things You Should Know About Roe vs. Wade by Joe Carter. Since this is the 40th anniversary of that sad decision by the courts, Carter looks back and offers some interesting stats and thoughts about it. Read it.
- The Manti Te'o Hoax, from the Perspective of a Football Fanatic's Wife by Lesley Miller. Okay, of the many things that have been said about this really strange news story, this is one of the best. We all have a deception problem.
