A La Carte (12/29)

Bible Reading Plans - If you aren’t planning on joining in The 3650 Challenge with me, here are some other Bible reading plans that may help you read the Bible in 2012.

Nuclear Exclusion Zone - A Big Picture photo gallery of Japan’s nuclear exclusion zone. It’s always fascinating to see areas like this where time just stopped. And you wonder how long it will be before it begins again.

The Smartphone of the Soul - “Apple used to use that catchy phrase ‘there’s an app for that.’ Need to send flowers to mom? there’s an app for that. Need to know the name of the constellation of stars in the sky overhead? There’s an app for that. Need supper? There’s an app for that. Well, whatever your circumstance of life, there’s a Psalm for that…”

Double Surgery - David has some good thoughts on medical humiliation, medical glory, and the ever-present pride.

The Book of Books - Marilynne Robinson writes about what literature owes the Bible. “The Bible is the model for and subject of more art and thought than those of us who live within its influence, consciously or unconsciously, will ever know.”

My Song is Love Unknown - A beautiful song.

The chief purpose of prayer is that God may be glorified in the answer. —R.A. Torrey
