A La Carte (8/27)

Wednesday August 27, 2008 From the DNC
For a unique spin on the DNC, be sure to read Dave Barry’s columns. The first one is at the link above and the others can be accessed from the left column of the Miami Herald’s site.
Go Outside and Play

Free Commentary
Logos is offering a free commentary on Matthew and Mark for Logos users. No strings attached. Even people without the software can access this commentary.

“An Anglican priest has unlocked the 270-year-old secrets of Charles Wesley’s coded diary, throwing light on the turbulent relationship that he had with his brother John in the early years of the Methodist movement they founded.”
