Flotsam & Jetsam (4/24)

Plucking Bird by Bird [Caution: Mature] – I love this. A smart, well-articulated post that examines Anne Lamott and her book from a biblical perspective. Bravo, indeed.

Thinking Out Loud In Public – Good thoughts from Sean Lucas: “In some ways, blogging is a form of thinking out loud in public. In fact, all social media has this element – thoughts are tried out whether in long form or in short form, but often it is an exercise of talking to one’s self. In the sense that these ideas are expressed in ways that make sense to ourselves, but can often draw funny looks from others, if not outright criticism.”

Blaise Pascal Quotes – Awesome.

Wherein I Do and Don’t Talk About This Book – Another excellent book review, this time dealing with Evolving in Monkeytown by Rachel Held Evans.

The Gospel: Simple Yet Not Simplistic – Pastor Cardwell writes, “The gospel of Jesus Christ is simple; yet, it is not simplistic. In other words, although it is fundamentally simple and easily understood, Jesus Christ is the ‘Lamb slain’ from before the beginning of the world. Everything that there is comes forth from the gospel and therefore, the gospel is as infinite and eternal as God Himself.”

Utter Powerlessness – O, that the modern evangelist would heed Pink’s words.

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.'” – C.S. Lewis
