Real-World Church – White Horse Inn has a review of the book SimChurch and by looking at the book they say some useful things about the importance of separating the virtual from the real.

How to Leave Comments – I enjoyed this comic. Writing is so therapeutic. So is making a sandwich.

Amish Technology – This is a really good article if you can make it all the way through (it’s a longer one). The author takes the time to explain why the Amish draw the seemingly-strange lines they do when it comes to technology.

The Busers on Biem – I really enjoyed watching this video of a family that has set out to build a ministry in Papua New Guinea. This article offers some interesting background.

The 15 Best Things – Here are the 15 best things Warren Buffet has said about investing.

The Responsibility of Wealth – Craig Groeschel writes about generosity, wealth and why the two are necessarily related.

—William S. Plumer
