A La Carte (6/1)

I got this from Chris Brauns who quoted these words which were spoken by Billy Sunday:

I’m against sin. I’ll kick it as long as I’ve got a foot, and I’ll fight it as long as I’ve got a fist. I’ll butt it as long as I’ve got a head. I’ll bite it as long as I’ve got a tooth. And when I’m old and fistless and footless and tootheless, I’ll gum it till I go home to Glory and it goes home to perdition!

I Wish – Maryanne offers a good reflection on an old professor. “I Googled Dr. Heddendorf last week. I suddenly felt this overwhelming need to affirm him in my life. To make contact, and to share with him how much value his life and career had. Were that me, I would want to know. So I hopped up and researched his name.”

Courageous Missionary Murdered – From Gospel for Asia: “Ajit Bansi, a Gospel for Asia-supported missionary, dreamed of the day he could dedicate a church building for his growing congregation. But just days before it was to take place, his dream was crushed. An extremist anti-Christian group cruelly ended his life May 20.”

Memorial Day Memory – Ray Ortlund shares a family snippet for Memorial Day.

Apple’s Secret Weapon – I found this quite an interesting article. It explains why Apple has been able to see so much early success with the iPad (just as they did with the iPhone). Where others have failed, they are able to succeed. The author of this article says it all comes down to educating the consumer.
