The Best of August
I've been at this blogging thing for quite a long time now--it's coming up on ten years. I've been at the daily blogging thing for almost as long. This means that I've got an extensive backlist of articles from years gone by. I thought it might be fun to pull out some of the articles I wrote in previous months of August, stretching all the way back to 2004.
A Holy Moment - This is a memory I had to deal with at last.
How Big Is the Universe? - As a Christian, you simply can’t ponder the universe without glorying in God.
5 Reasons Books Are Better Than E-Books, 5 Reasons E-Books Are Better Than Books, and concluding thoughts in Books & E-Books, Media & Messages - I look back at this and realize just how quickly our technology is moving us in new directions.
Help Lord--The Devil Wants Me Fat! - It just so happens that I was looking at this book yesterday. For some reason I keep it right beside my desk.
A Faithful Servant - A brief biographical sketch of Reverend Alden.
Counseling Myself - Here I am, after my eleventh wedding anniversary, lecturing myself.
Who Do You Love More? - Here’s a time I made my children cry.
Open Mind, Closed Bible - Sometimes having an “open mind” requires having a closed Bible.
My Best Friend’s Wedding - Another anniversary article. It was fun to read it again.
Wrestling with Evolution - Here I tried to think through some of the implications of evolution.
Thanksgiving for Thanksgiving - This was one of those moments that gave me a glimpse of God’s care for me.
Repaying a Gift - This is still one of my favorite articles of all-time, I think.
Human Predictability - We are an awfully predictable bunch, aren’t we?
What Could Be - Back in 2004 I was taking a sports metaphor to the pews of the church.
