It's that time again, another Formica Friday---though today, on a Saturday and late!---a treasure trove of hodgepodge, random tidbits, and a bit of this and that. In particular, it is the place where I can celebrate the best posts I read this past week and want to share with you. [caption id="attachment_3183" align="aligncenter" width="612"] Picked this print up when I saw the Dead Sea Scrolls on Friday. It's Pentecost, with some extra, saintly friends added, from the St. John's Bible.[/caption]
Will you join me next Wednesday for a synchroblog?
We're young, yes, but we have things to share, excellence to offer. Let's humbly, but rawly, talk about realizing that gift? Look at the original post below:
Posts, websites, trinkets, and the Internet week in review revue. A quote, a link. Perhaps you'll click through:
- "And she cried at the moon, at the stars, at the faith she’d accepted in university because no one had ever told her that she was loved, growing up. So how could she tell me?" The Day I Stopped Eating by Emily W (check out her book in my sidebar)
- "Today I prayed for Titus, for God’s will to be done. That prayer is any parent’s undoing. At the same time, it is the steel of my will." Arkansas Children’s Hospital ~ The Eighth Day by Seth (and keep praying for Titus)
- "the Talmud instructs that in situations in which the good deed would be left undone were we not to do it, we ought to put aside Torah study in favor of doing the good deed, despite the fact that Torah study is more spiritually refined." Fidelity to the Necessities: Jewish Priorities and the Talmud by Rabbi Eliyahu Yaakov
- "The summer before that, I scrawled somewhere, who knew reading these saint guys could soften my heart again? after walking through a bit of Bonaventure by recommendation." the stones i stood on firmly. by Antonia
- "There in the dark green forest, a small wink of white, a light in the darkness, a bright spot in the night, a home for fairies, perhaps, but it was just for us to see together, a gift." In which [love looks like] an empty birdhouse by Sarah Bessey
- "Nothing exceptional marked that Thursday morning at the bakery. Esperanza arrived at the bakery a few minutes early which afforded her a ten minute nap in the front seat. The windows rolled down meant the manager’s turning of the deadbolt and flipping on the lights would wake her." Comfort and Hope, fiction, from Jerry Hodge
- "I worry that if people twenty years from now remember the Christian blogosphere as driven by controversy, outrage, and infighting, tragically they might be more right than wrong." A History of Outrage by Mason
And, as always, an old post from me:
Tell me, what did you read this week that you enjoyed, or what was your best post?
