A La Carte (08/09)

Wednesday August 9, 2006

Theology: JD Wetterling has a good article introducing his forthcoming book “No One…” which has just been released by Christian Focus Publications. “I pray that our merciful God will speak to you in the pages of this book. If you or someone you love cannot see the kingdom of God, I pray that Christ’s crystal clear “No one…” declarations will, through the power of the Holy Spirit, do a miraculous work, and grace will give you or your loved one a joy that No one can take away (John 16:22b).” The book even has an endorsement by yours truly!

Anniversary: My wife and I celebrated our eighth anniversary yesterday. A hopeless romantic, I bought her something she declared the best anniversary gift I’ve ever gotten her: The first season DVD of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” I got her some chocolate too, which I hope redeems me.

Du Jour: Carolyn McCulley tenderly answers a letter from a single woman who feels she just cannot go on without a relationship.

Video: This is an exceptionally entertaining video. I have no idea what they’re singing about because I was too busy watching them. This is great entertainment!
