Why gay marriage is good and bad for the church (TGC)
Why the church should neither cave nor panic about the decision on gay marriage (Washington Post)
Why bloggers are calling it quits. (Christianity Today)
Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. -Luke 12:32
I could post something Seth Godin wrote every single day. This in particular stuck out to me today, though. On writing things people aren’t expecting:
The unexpected doesn’t work because it’s surprising. It works because it’s valuable. Valuable because it brings new truth, because it says something we didn’t already know.
But unexpected writing isn’t merely important, it’s a miracle. If we already knew what we needed to hear from you, we wouldn’t need you to say it.

This from Albert Mohler on reading good books (or the best books) is excellent:
Reading is an individual act that, at its best, overflows into our relationships, conversations, and generous sharing. Good books make us think as we read and reflect. The best books make us think deeply, without the overwhelming sense that thinking is what we are doing. Enjoy reading worthy books, summertime or anytime.
