Wednesday July 26, 2006

Blog: Two days after I wrote about encouragement, my biggest little sister experiences just such a moment. It’s a great story.

Weird: Someone sent me a link to a new online finger meditation tool. You got it! It’s a mini labyrinth courtesy of Grace Cathedral, a Lutheran church in San Francisco.

Alcohol: The Thirsty Theologian continues his excellent and widely-lined series on alcohol.

The comments to this post will be the place to bring up passages that you believe I have overlooked or avoided. I will attempt to answer objections in a later post.”

Warren: Jollyblogger (wait, didn’t I link him yesterday?) posts a post-mortem on last week’s article criticizing Rick Warren for teaching Jewish people how to evangelize.

    Redeeming Sex in Marriage

    Surely few things in this world are more mysterious than sex. Surely few things give such clear evidence that there must be more to them than the sum of their parts. On the one level, sex is a simple biological function that exists to populate the earth with human beings. On the other level, it…
