This is a slightly abbreviated A La Carte. I was away on a Father and Son’s retreat this weekend and am still in catch-up mode. Here are a few of the links I was able to collect after all the burning , shooting, throwing and other manly things were done.

    When God Gives Us a Platform

    There are many ways we may respond to the sudden onrush of some new pain or the sudden onset of some fresh sorrow.
