A La Carte (4/25)

A La Carte Collection cover image

On Friday we enjoyed a Good Friday service with 1,000 people from 5 Toronto-area churches. On Saturday I got my city-slicker family out into the countryside to visit some old, dear friends. While there my kids fired off rockets, drove ATVs and did some target practice with rifles (well, only my son did the latter). Then we drove back to the city to celebrate Easter. What a great weekend!

6 Things Christ Accomplished in His Death – Matt Perman outlines 6 things Christ accomplished in his death.

Bird’s Eye – This site offers a bit of visual eye candy in a post sharing photos of the earth taken from a bird’s eye view.

Bull About Bullying – I love Thomas Sowell’s writing. “When politicians want to do nothing and yet look like they are doing something, they appoint a blue-ribbon committee or go to the U.N. or assign some cabinet member to look into the problem and report back to the president — hoping that the issue will be forgotten by the time he reports back.”

PC vs Mac – Here’s an infographic outlining some of the differences between Mac and PC users.

Popular History – “Popular history books are big business. Which means that lots of people must be reading them… Which means they are definitely worth approaching with considerably more care and attention than many give them…” Here is a list of questions to ask of popular history books.

Perverse Sign of Recovery – Josh Harris mentions one of the more perverse and disappointing signs of economic recovery.

Death In His Grave – I’ve posted this once before, but it’s worth doing again around Easter.

Knowing God is your single greatest privilege as a Christian.
