B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_There are several free ebooks available today. I’m not sure how long they’ll last:

  • CrossTalk: Where Life & Scripture Meet by Michael R. Emlet (Amazon | iTunes)
  • Losers Like Us: Redefining Discipleship after Epic Failure by Daniel Hochhalter (Amazon | iTunes)

I appreciated Leo and Cynthia’s story, Together Again.

On Piles of Sand and Eating Babies is well worth the read.

Believe it or not, support for gay marriage has dropped a bit.

You probably already knew this, but Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a fan of aborting the poor. Read about it here and here.

Robin Williams on Heaven

August 16, 2014

Robin wants laughter in heaven. I don’t think he is too far off. I think there will be laughter in heaven; laughter and joy not from good jokes, but from an incredible, loving God whose plans for history and our lives are audaciously good.

Most of us either grew up hearing “Good Night Moon” or we read it to our children. Here is an interesting piece about the author, Margaret Wise Brown. She’s probably not the woman you thought she was.

I’ve always found articles about our brains fascinating. Here is an article about how our brains work. Want to think better? Go for a walk. For best results read the article several times.

Here is a wonderful story reminding us that our God is a rescuing God. He has rescued me.

First, here is the true story about one of America’s great theologians, B. B. Warfield. The whole post is worth reading.

Benjamin B. Warfield was a world-renowned theologian who taught at Princeton Seminary for almost 34 years until his death on February 16, 1921. Many people are aware of his famous books, like The Inspiration and Authority of the Bible. But what most people don’t know is that in 1876, at the age of twenty-five, he married Annie Kinkead and took a honeymoon to Germany. During a fierce storm Annie was struck by lightning and permanently paralyzed. After caring for her for thirty-nine years Warfield laid her to rest in 1915. Because of her extraordinary needs, Warfield seldom left his home for more than two hours at a time during all those years of marriage. (Great Leaders of the Christian Church, 344.)

Here is a helpful reminder not to focus on the small irritating stuff that drains the vitality from a marriage.

As many of us are guilty of making “mountains out of mole hills” in our marriages, we need a perspective jolt for our marriages and visiting a widow or widower who no longer has their spouse often provides that jolt.
