Monday Links and Bullets 3.14.11

Happy Monday.  Lots of links and bullets.  Lots going on!

LINK OF THE WEEK

Amazing photos of the heartbreak in Japan.  Don’t look at these for entertainment – look at them to identify and learn how to suffer with the Japanese who are suffering.

MATTERS OF THE FAITH

–Big dust-up about hell over Rob Bell’s new book.  Two related links from Tim Challies:  what I’d have to deny to deny hell exists, and a review of Bell’s book.  Think about this stuff folks.  It really does matter.

–For those who do struggle or have struggled with depression:  are you willing to answer these five questions? Also, here are 25 ways to find joy in Christ.  Mental health is important!

Nobody gets married anymore.

–Some reading about God & creation:  Lab Discoveries and evidence for God.

–An inspiring story from Christian history:  a Christian kidnapper.

–Very interesting – a gay person warns readers about the liberal agenda.

BULLET THOUGHTS FOR TODAY

  • Does anyone else wonder where the time goes?
  • Where are the lines between unity and doctrinal disagreement?
  • Working hard to make sure family gets enough of my time, from the top, not just the leftovers.
  • Realize this:  there is almost always a problem of some sort when you work for a church.  Almost always.  No complaining here, just a bit of reality for both those who do and those who don’t work for a church.
  • I am on track with training for this year.  Huge half marathon coming up on May 7 in Indianapolis.  Then I’ll ramp up the miles and try to qualify for the Boston Marathon this fall at the Columbus Marathon in October.  Going to take a lot of hard work, but hey – you can’t achieve much of anything sitting around.
  • I’m glad the days are longer, I just want my hour of sleep back.
  • Goss basketball has lost 22 in a row.  Will the streak come to an end tonight against the team whose only win was a close one against us?
  • I have been struggling on recent Mondays because a lot of things have come up.  Today has been very good – I’ve done a lot of reading, played with the kids, and gotten a few things done around the house.  Yes!
