Online Reading (July 13, 2018)

What I’m reading on Friday the 13th (oooo)

Charity: Elon Musk volunteers to fix people’s water in Flint, Michigan.

Missions: Protests in Haiti strand American short-term missionaries.

“charity” gambling: An example of Chase the Ace for the benefit of a local fire department isn’t promoting much charity in a family.

Interpretation: So, how does one interpret scripture?

Online Reading (Dec. 23, 2016)

Technerdiness: Apparently some people have turned to body modification to keep apple airpods in their ears.

Grieving: Remember that Christmas can actually be a harder time for some. Desiring God gives some thoughts as we pray for friends and family that may be grieving in a time of great joy.

Politics: Some think the religious right is monolithic. Even in a year that saw evangelicals overwhelmingly rally around a candidate, get religion points to a story of deep division among evangelicals over president Donald Trump.

Charity: As we think about giving this Christmas season, remember that loving our fellows can mean thinking about needs that don’t necessarily tug at our heart strings as much, CBC reports.
