Rest Stop

fight poverty – a vision of compassion and redistribution (beauty and depravity)

The solution is simple: Redistribute resources from us to them [since we are part of the same global community] and in that process, help create sustainability and build up/equip local leaders…

A Reality Check on Iran by Jim Wallis (God’s Politics)

Yes, Iran probably is keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons (like many other countries), but the way to prevent them is continued diplomacy that offers incentives to cooperate further with international inspections, not reckless talk of military attacks.

The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World (Desiring God)

Reading like an all-star roster of missional reformed theologians, the table of contents whets the reader’s appetite: Piper, D.A.

Emerging Church had a good year (Tallahassee Democrat)

Economic Fallacies: Price Equals Importance (Kruse Kronicle)

How important is air to you? I think we would agree that is absolutely essential. More than a minute or two without air and we die. But how much will your next breathe cost? Nothing. That doesn’t mean it isn’t important.

The Golden Compass and Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” (pomomusings)

Since we are living in a post-Potter world now, His Dark Materials is taking its place in the world of popular fantasy literature. Of course that means it’s the “next big thing” for conservative Christians to rail against.

The Crisis of Faith (NY Times)

Mr. Romney filled his speech with the first myth — that the nation’s founders, rather than seeking to protect all faiths, sought to imbue the United States with Christian orthodoxy.
