Here are some good reads from the last week:
On Homosexuality: It’s OK to Fight. Quote: “I had to believe either my feelings were lying to me or God was.”
She Yelled and Called Me Names. Neat story of one woman’s reaction to such a scenario.
Serving in Church: When Your Spiritual Gift Isn’t Changing Diapers.
A Beautiful Mess. God can use us despite our imperfections.
Caring For the Caregiver. All of these will not be needed by every caregiver, and definitely ask before jumping in, but there are some good ideas here.
The Case For Good Taste in Children’s Books.
She Chose Grace when a potential daughter-in-law wasn’t what she was expecting.
Pharisees and Fundamentalists. Are they the same? No, and Layton Talbert, whose books I have reviewed here, and whose scholarship, tact, and balance I greatly respect, points out the differences and the main problems of Phariseeism.
And a few on writing:
Nurture the Heart of Your Story.
Squelch the Naysayers.
This is a neat story about someone who did the right thing when he didn’t realize anyone was watching:
And, for a couple of “Awwww” moments:
From the aptly named Cute Overload site, a baby panda meets its mom for the first time. The photos below the video of the baby panda are adorable.
And I saw this at Susanne‘s: a fireman rescues a kitten.
A news clip about it is here.
