It’s been a long and crazy week here. I couldn’t post at the beginning of the week because I was out of town visiting cousins that live on the West Coast and rarely get to see. We went hiking and I ate way too much ice cream. It was wonderful.
But I’m back and here are some of the things that caught my eye this week.
Ebola is often a deadly disease. But there was great news this week that Dr. Kent Brantly survived and was released from the hospital. Brantly praised God and called it a “miraculous day.”
This is definitely worth listening to. One of these sermons is the best exegesis I’ve heard of this passage from the gospel of Luke. The other, well, one of the worst. Check out this cage fight.
The latest development in the Mars Hill/Mark Driscoll scandal. It is good to see people standing up against spiritual abuse, but we should not rejoice such disturbing behavior. Instead we should pray for Driscoll to repent and resign.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Yoga is a religious practice and not a Christian one. But don’t take my word for it, listen to what one former New Ager has to say about it.
Lastly, this weekend I’ll be attending the International Lindy Hop Championships. This video from last year will give you a glimpse of the incredible dancing I’ll get to witness (and participate in) the next few days. This is a video of the pros competing. I am no where near that good.
