This is what we turn to in the heat of Chicago…
Kris follows Mark’s blog and glad he has a recent update.
Jim Martin reflecting.
Yes, I think he’s right: the election will shift soon to the economic issues.
John Frye’s posts a good one on Jesus and Context.
Mr. Thabo Mbekei, say something, do something.
The story of Beatrice; reminded me of the story of the book Unbowed.
Semper Vita is now live.
Radical Christians on the road.
A tough, but right, review of Viola’s book by Ben Witherington.
Maybe this is the beast of Revelation?
Here’s a way to beat the gas prices…
Suddenly, watermelon sales … especially in Florida.
An emerging pastor, who dresses up in emerging gear and not a collar, advocating uniforms for school kids. Well, Eugene …
Read this piece on chilling red wines for no other reason than the prose. (No “Amen” from this blog, but Mr. Asimov, I’ll surely read you the next time I see your tagline.)
1. A good piece on torture.
2. Obama’s suggested (perhaps) tax plans.
3. When the buck stops with her.

5. This looks cool, and I’m sure the Italians would love it, but I’m not so sure I’d want a teenager on it.

WSJ on churches.
Speaking of churches, how many sermons will be built on how chaos makes us vulnerable by reading the story of the Colombian Escape? (Lots.) Yes, it was a great story and that picture of mother, daughter, and son is a great one.
The Cubs are smellin’ up the place right now. Pitching isn’t consistent; relievers are struggling; hitting isn’t timely. And they are on the road and are now in St. Louis.
