A La Carte (1/10)

I’m glad you who read the site on the weekend enjoyed Saturday’s Weekend Edition of A La Carte. I suppose I’ll try carrying that one on for a few weeks to see how it works out (which is to say I’ll need to see if I can find enough good links to carry it through.). I should try to come up with a link submission system to crowdsource some of the link discovery for A La Carte. Anyone know of a system that would handle that?

Read Less, Meditate More – Z points to a Bible reading plan that encourages depth of engagement over mere volume. “The purpose of this Bible reading schedule (shortened considerably from schedules that get through the Bible in one year) is actually to limit the amount of Bible we read daily. Reading quickly through many verses may not be as profitable as savoring deeply a few verses. So the aim of this schedule is not to read less, but to meditate more.”

Practical Shepherding – Brian Croft’s Practical Shepherding blog has a new home and a new look. This is pretty much a must-read blog for men in ministry (and others who are interested).

SwissGear – Amazon’s got a sale on SwissGear laptop bags, today only. These are great bags for the price they’re selling them at today (I don’t know that they’d be worth paying full price for…).

Monergism Books – Monergism Books is having an inventory reduction sale of an additional 10% off our sale prices on everything in the whole store.  Lowest prices for books on the net (on regular sale prices) guaranteed through Tuesday at Midnight.

Cruciform Quotes – Here’s a cool site; it offers a collection of best-of quotes from books published by Cruciform Press.

The Shepherd Leader – Last  week David wrote about the biblical metaphor of sheep; he recently followed this up with an article about the accompanying metaphor of shepherds.

Gulag Lite – I don’t know all of the historical and political background to this story, but it makes for interesting reading nonetheless.

Beast Mode – This is the most ridiculous football highlight I’ve seen in a long time. Did they butter this guy down before the game?

The tree will not only lie as it falls, but it will fall as it leans. What is the inclination of my soul? –J.J. Gurney
