A La Carte (2/8)

Keller on NYC’s Decision to Ban Churches from Schools - “I am grieved that New York City is planning to take the unwise step of removing 68 churches from the spaces that they rent in public schools. It is my conviction that those churches housed in schools are invaluable assets to the neighborhoods that they serve. Churches have long been seen as positive additions to communities.”

Asperger’s - “Psychiatrists working on the latest edition of their profession’s diagnostic manual are thought to be tightening the definition of autism and dispensing with Asperger’s completely.”

There Was No Cross - It’s amazing how often this subject comes up in scholarship. And somehow people react like the person is breaking new ground. “Jesus may not have died nailed to the cross because there is no evidence that the Romans crucified prisoners two thousand years ago, a scholar has claimed.”

Spiritual Cardio - Erik Raymond shares some wisdom from Jonathan Edwards and compares prayer to spiritual cardio.

Women Are Better at Parking - Well would you look at that. “Covert surveillance of car parks across Britain show women are better at manoeuvring into parking spaces.”

ISS Night Flight Over USA - This is pretty interesting—a short timelapse film of the International Space Station flying over the US of A.

To see a man humble under prosperity is one of the greatest rarities in the world. —John Flavel
