Creation: Snopes has a beautiful picture of a phenomenon known as “circumhorizon(tal) arc” (and apparently also by the less technical name of “fire rainbow”). “A circumhorizontal arc (or ‘fire rainbow’) appears when the sun is high in the sky (i.e., higher than 58″ above the horizon), and its light passes through diaphanous, high-altitude cirrus clouds made up of hexagonal plate crystals.”
Theology: Mark Driscoll posted a lengthy article answering common questions about creation. While I merely skimmed the article, it looks like it contains plenty of good information.
Weird: Three employees of Coca-Cola have been arrested for attempting to sell confidential trade secrets to Pepsi. The three “are charged with wire fraud and unlawfully stealing and selling Coke trade secrets, federal prosecutors said.” You can read about it here.
Church: Alex Chediak reports that City Church of San Francisco has decided to leave the PCA over the issue of women in leadership. “An affiliate of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York, NY, the leadership of City Church sought to reach out to San Francisco with similar theological convictions and methodological winsomeness.”
