The Death of Bees – You have probably been hearing about bees dying en masse. This video explains why this is such a problem.

How the Gospel Ended My Same-Sex Relationship – This is a powerful piece of writing. “I just want to tell a little of my story, with the hope that maybe someone out there will hear me differently than so many of the aforementioned sound bites circulating right now.
