A La Carte (08/30)

Conference: The Desiring God conference blog is reporting that registration for the Desiring God conference is at 90% capacity. It is going to be a good one. If you are thinking of signing up, you’d better do so in the next couple of days. Even if you don’t go, you can poach your ticket outside and make some money!

Blog: The Rebelution boys have updated their site and have done a great job of it. If you’re a teen, this is a blog you’ll want to bookmark.

Da Vinci: Here’s an interesting headline: “Da Vinci coders vandalise church.” “Treasure hunters trying to crack the Da Vinci Code are believed to be behind criminal damage at a village church with links to the Holy Grail.” Sigh.

Humor: Ian shares an oldie but a goodie. It’s a video showing Al Mohler pitting his wits against an inferior opponent.
