  • Du Jour: The increasingly curmudgeonly (is that a word?) Dan Edelen insults and offends every Christian blogger by asking if Christian blogging is a waste of time.
  • Blogspotting: Kristina Hansen at The Daily noticed yesterday’s article Repentance and Evangelicalism. She didn’t say if she agreed, but I assume she did based on her very good article on the Sinner’s Prayer.

  • Humor: Here’s a strange one: Go to Google Images and do a search for “challies.” Take a look at the fifth result. And incidentally, I have no idea who that is in the third result.
  • Blogspotting: Adrian Warnock attempts to shift the blame for his blog design. I don’t blame him. Thumbs up to the clean up!
  • Humor Bonus: Steve Camp posts a list of lighbulb jokes. You’ve probably already heard most of them.

  • Politics: Michaelle Jean became Canada’s Governor-General yesterday. Many decry this as a purely politically-correct move by the Prime Minister, as Jean is a black, female Hatian immigrant – a bit of a strange choice to be representative of Canadians.
  • Wishlist: Here is a gift for the hiker or camper in your life. The Outdoor Bible (NASB) is a tear-resistant, waterproof Bible. It is quite a neat little innovation!
  • Du Jour: Dan Edelen wraps up his controversial series on The Myths of Homeschooling. I’ve long-since learned that taking on home schooling parents can be a daunting task!
  • Media: The Times would have us believe that belief in and worship of God are not only unnecessary for a healthy society but may actually contribute to social problems. Peter Glover comments.
