From Christ & Pop Culture

"If after exploring McAlister’s purpose more carefully and understanding his audience more deeply, we are still unconvinced, we must push ourselves to offer more than criticism: what might we do for this population instead? How can we serve them better or more effectively or more biblically? Your answer may differ from McAlister’s, but if we are to 'make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19),' we must be willing to step outside of our comfort zone for those whose need for the gospel exceeds our own preferences."

From The Atlantic

"Compared to teens who reported that their fathers were not involved, teens with involved fathers were 98 percent more likely to graduate from college, and teens with very involved fathers were 105 percent more likely to graduate from college, controlling for respondent’s age, race, ethnicity, level of mother’s education, and household income as a teen. Clearly, young women and men with more engaged fathers are more likely to acquire a college diploma than their peers without such a father. "

From Aleteia.org

"People are already talking civil war, though armed resistance may be what they really mean. But the frustration is buried so deep and the love of freedom so intense, that some seem itching for the shooting to begin."

From Kingdom People

"Every year, stores, businesses, and radio stations immerse our culture in the 'Christmas season' by playing holiday songs from Thanksgiving until Christmas Day. Which begs the question: why do we spend a month to listening to Christmas music, but only a Sunday singing Easter music?"

From Making All Things New

"A few days ago a pair of songwriter-musicians, who are Christians [Derek Webb and Sandra McCracken], announced their divorce. I am thinking of them tonight, Easter Saturday, the Great Vigil, and feeling sad and solemn."

"Why would God put His only child through a horribly cruel death if indeed there were any other way to bring humanity back to reunion with Him?"

From The Anchoress

"I wouldn’t presume to say that anything was being communicated to me, but I nevertheless had a glimpse — or an overwhelming 'sense' — of something. In that brief flash I knew that hovering over us, near us, within us, all about us, was an awful, unstoppable ache of love and sadness; a sense of 'Oh, my people! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.'"

From The Nation

"On the left, prostitution used to be seen as a bad thing: part of the general degradation of the working class, and the subjugation of women, under capitalism. Women who sold sex were victims, forced by circumstances into a painful and humiliating way of life, and socialism would liberate them. Now, selling sex is sex work—just another service job, with good points and bad—and if you suggest that the women who perform it are anything less than free agents, perhaps even 'empowered' if they make enough money, you’re just a prude."

From Yahoo!News/The Christian Science Monitor

"If you were a salesperson trying to persuade a potential client to switch suppliers, you would be kind and friendly to that client, not dismiss them as stupid or worse for their current supplier choice. So if you're trying to sell an idea -- whether on the national political stage or at a family dinner with your uncle -- why would you behave any differently? Kindness, respect, finding the basic goodness and human dignity in everyone -- that is the essence of emotional correctness, and that is how we begin the conversations that lead to change."
