Weekend A La Carte (5/28)

My son had a baseball game last night, the first of at least 3 he is to play this weekend as part of a tournament. He was on second base and ended up on the wrong side of a triple play. I guess he’s a true baseball fan because on the way off the field he high-fived the guy on the other team who turned the play. I was proud of him. When your son inherits your lack of athletic ability, being a good teammate is your highest hope for him!

That Others May Live - “The United States military has entire units devoted exclusively to saving lost soldiers downed in hostile territory. The USAF pararescue forces have one stated mission: rescue. As a believer and a missionary, I am inspired by their motto…”

Maple Syrup Reactors Safe - “Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper addressed growing public concerns about the safety of his country’s maple syrup reactors Thursday, reassuring citizens that the sucrose fission facilities posed little risk of failure and there was absolutely no reason to be concerned.”

Live Simulcast Event - This looks like an interesting event; it is being simulcast around the world so you may be able to find a local location to take it in.

Being a Healthy Pastor - There are some good words here for pastors. 

What Song? - This is strangely fascinating. If you ever see me listening to something on my iPhone, it’s probably Max McLean. (HT:Z)
