The wrap

wrapping giftWrapping paper is often dyed, laminated and/or contains non-paper additives such as gold and silver coloured shapes, glitter, plastics etc which cannot be recycled. But wraps found on this blog are fully reusable and will surely please the carbon-conscious visitor. For instance, there is no reason why you can't repeatedly visit Infernal Ramblings, a blog devoted to socio-political issues of interest to Malaysians, by a Malaysian studying at Dartmouth (HT: DD), or Sola Panel, a group blog by a few Sydney Anglicans. Of course, being green can sometimes be too much of a good thing, for you could suffer something akin to Bono Fatigue. Don't laugh, it could happen to U2.

Two interesting and important pieces from two respected periodicals:
  • Nomads at Last (The Economist) on the connectedness of our world; how wireless communication is changing the way people live, work and relate to places.
  • The Post-American World (Newsweek) on the changing global realities of our world. It's an excerpt from Fareed Zakaria's forthcoming book of the same name.

    Browse people's opinions on what books they'll put on a church's book table.

    Great discussion on what preaching should achieve. Make sure to read the comment thread, that's where all the action is!

    Russ Moore: Beyond a Veggietales Gospel - why we must preach Christ from every text. Spoiler alert, he gives away the ending of The Sixth Sense!

    C.S Lewis scholar Devin Brown on Lewis's characters and looking at the world rightly.

    What to do when your pastor (or anyone) offends you.

    A Two-Way Street: Suffering, Free Will, and the Glory of God. Or, Reformed and non-Reformed views on theodicy ain't worlds apart, sir!

    For the football obssessed: Stats galore on the recently concluded Premier League campaign. Did you know England's finest finisher is...Joleon Lescott?!?

    Charlie Peacock on the future of Christian music.

    Job interviews are like dates - don't get them mixed up. Funny.
