It was 13 years ago today that Aileen and I were married. We are celebrating by driving the 850 miles from Toronto to Chattanooga to spend a few days with family. Actually, we got a start yesterday and drove as far as Dayton, Ohio, so we’ve got just half of the drive remaining. We will pay a visit to the National Museum of the United States Air Force (I’m geeky that way) and then we’ll hit the road.

WORLD – World has a couple of things to check out–their iPad edition is now allowing digital subscriptions and they’ve also put together a gallery of their covers from the past 25 years.

Where Children Sleep – This is a really interesting photo gallery. “As much as the project is about the quirkiness of childhood, it is, more strikingly, a commentary on class and on poverty. But the diversity also provides a sense of togetherness.”

Ashtown Burials – Be sure to check out the trailer for N.D. Wilson’s newest book. It’s very, very well-done. My son really wants to read this book now. So do I.

The Glory of God – Fans of Christian rap will want to grab this free single from Shai Linne. It’s from a forthcoming album that will exult in the glories of God.

Death–What a Mystery – Conrad Mbewe mourns the death of his sister and writes about the great mystery that is death.

Evolution Refuted – From Answers in Genesis.

The law may express sin but it cannot suppress sin.

—Thomas Adams

    A Freak of Nature (and Nurture)
