Rwanda Genocide – This is an interesting article from the BBC that tells about an orphanage and a couple of unsung heroes. “A modest building that now houses around 150 children, it played a key role in protecting some of those those caught up in Rwanda’s 1994 genocide, in which more than 800,000 people were killed in 100 days.”

Earth as Art – I may have posted this before. Either way, it’s worth looking at again.

Heresy or Hobby? – David Murray shares an email he received that offers some sound advice on reading.

Dora the Doormat – Mary Kassian, who has been called an “uber-complementarian” (which isn’t meant as a compliment) writes about several straw women when it comes to gender roles.

The Next Story – Josh Buice is writing a thorough (and thoroughly encouraging) review of my book.

The Simplest, Most Complex Commercial – I don’t much care what they’re selling; I want one just to reward their hard work.

The severest self-denials and the most lavish gifts are of no value in God’s esteem unless they are prompted by love.
