Our last Weekly Meanderings for 2009.
So, let’s move on to 2010!
It’s unlikely I will have a Weekly Meanderings ready for next week, as we will be on vacation in warmer climes.
To begin with, one of our blog’s Friends is Michael Spencer, known to most of us as iMonk. Michael has been diagnosed with cancer and I’m asking you to join me in praying for Michael and family this weekend.
Art and Liz adopted this little Swazi child: thanks Art!
Father Rob’s challenge at a DC area church (snow story wishing it were a summer scene like this one to the left).
Sarah Pulliam Bailey pointed me over to the Pew study on the religious levels of individual States. (I’m just glad we are higher than the Minnesooooooooo’ans!)
Michael Kruse reviews the introvert book.
Do we need chronotherapists? Ask Olivia Judson.
OK, everyone, touch your toes.
Five must-see films — and I’ve not heard of any of them. What do you think?
Hauerwas on leadership.
Karen on faith and firearms.
Tony Jones posts on the virgin birth.
Meanderings in the News
1. Is Etsy the future for crafts?
2. The Nelson compromise on antiabortion insurance issues.
3. Sarah Palin tweeted recently about the global climate issues. Many just roll their eyes when she becomes news but whether they like it or not, her critics need to know she really does speak the beliefs of many. Her tweets: ““Arrogant&Naive2say man overpwers nature,” and “Earth saw clmate chnge4 ions;will cont 2 c chnges.R duty2responsbly devlop resorces4humankind/not pollute&destroy;but cant alter naturl chng.”
4. Here’s some good news for travelers (HT: RJS).
6. Sign of what? “Now comes the curious part. If I have done badly, I feel badly. No surprise there. But if I’ve done well (at least in my estimation), I feel worse.”
7. Sandra Bullock’s response to the faith of Leigh Anne Tuohy.
9. Did you see this piece on Robert George?
11. Menus are getting clever.
Meanderings in Sports
My daughter, Laura, and her husband, Mark, each won their divisions in their Fantasy Football leagues — and now are playing for the championship. (Is FF sports?)
My pick for the Super Bowl: Minnesota vs. Indianapolis.
