This is a simple little chart that demonstrates the importance of both relationships and a direct approach to evangelism. I’m not a fan of knocking doors to “present the gospel.” Nor am I a fan of befriending someone and showing them love, while never saying a word about Jesus and his kingdom. Direct AND relational is key.
A list from John Piper. Did you know that, except in cases of abortion, taking the life of a baby in a mother’s womb is deemed manslaughter?
One out of every 13 people on earth is on Facebook. That is an astounding number — especially when you consider how many people don’t have computers or internet access. But the really good news is that every 20 minutes on Facebook, its users accept nearly 2,000,000 friend requests. The human race is becoming friends at an incredible pace; soon there will be no war or hatred left in our world. Good for Facebook. This infographic is quite interesting.
I thought I took my Wrangler off-road a lot when I lived in the states — and I suppose I did compared with the average Jeep owner or soccer mom. But, living in Tanzania, I realize how little I actually knew about off-roading (these days it sometimes requires 4WD just to get to my house… and I live “IN” town). This article won’t make you an expert, but it’s got some good information for getting started.
This is a weird interactive art thing. Or, as the website calls it (more intelligent-sounding), “an experiment in generative art.” It’s no Spirograph, but if you like computers or art you should enjoy it for 5 minutes or so. Do you guys remember the Spirograph? My grandmother had one at her house, and it was the coolest thing ever (even better than Sorry! which was pretty amazing in its own right).
I sometimes worry that people think I’m careless with our daughter — when I throw her into the air and catch her. That’s nothing compared to this “baby cage.” [Speaking of Baylor being hurt, she was stung by a wasp yesterday. I’m really not very good at watching my little baby in pain. I killed the wasp.]
