Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Monday Links and Bullets 8.29.11

No Friday writing last week – traffic was slow so or the links were lame – or both!  Hopefully this week will be better.  I can’t believe this is the last Monday post for August!

LINK OF THE WEEK

— If you support marriage, how will you be labeled?

THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

— More on homosexuality – which is clearly the issue of the season for Christians.  Seriously, in one generation one specific lifestyle based on private behavior has gone from universally accepted as wrong to a public demand for affirmation to the point those opposed to it are now feared.  Here are clear and concise comments from Albert Mohler.  Here is an article about the teacher in Florida who got himself in hot water expressing his opinion.

The biblical servant pastor – very encouraging and challenging short read.

Children at risk in U.S. cohabiting households, but not in UK.  Think on this one.

SPORTS-

A day for the ages.  This is a good read about an amazing game.

Good to see some love for a great player after so much (deserved) criticism earlier in the year.

BULLET THOUGHTS

  • Skillet can hurry up with that new album.  Early 2012?
  • So I ran a marathon last Thursday.  It was a classic example of my main marathon philosophy.  Anything can happen.  On this day, the humidity spiked to a level that affected me, and most of the other runners.  I don’t have an elite ceiling on what I can do athletically so a day like this put a damper on plans.  In the end, I ran 3:35, similar to a time I posted 3 years ago.
  • I’m considering my options for fall racing.  I should have a decision by the end of the week.
  • It is brutal that there are zeroes on either side of the $10,000 slot on Plinko.
  • I am anxious to hear from a group of people who took a trip to Chicago over the weekend.
  • It was a truly spectacular experience to be at Yankee Stadium to witness something that has never happened before in Major League Baseball.  The Yankees hit three grand slams in that game, and I was there to witness all of them.  What a thrill!
  • Should be some movement over the next couple weeks regarding our foster daughter.  Stay tuned as some decisions will be made sooner rather than later.
  • I am really getting geared up for this fall’s preaching course.
  • I’m looking forward to spending time with several people this week.
  • Getting closer to the two year anniversary of links and bullets.  Only a couple months away – I’ll be announcing this year’s give away soon!
