Links worth a look.

When I first started this little blog a few years ago, I had a page dedicated specifically to non-literary links which I found of interest and worth sharing. The link sharing service I was using at the time (Delicious) went under.  Delicious was my preferred method of sharing links, and I haven’t really found one that I like as much since. However, I still read many articles over the course of a week with ideas worth sharing for contemplation. To that end, I decided this morning, after reading a particularly moving piece at Circe, to simply put the links right here, on a separate page, and add to them as they come up. They’ll be separated by months.

Please note that inclusion on this link list does not constitute hearty endorsement of everything the author has ever written, said, or expressed belief in. It is a simple acknowledgement that at a particular moment in time, they wrote a piece I deemed interesting and worthy of sharing.

July 2018

  • The vindication of cheese, butter, and full fat milk: Yes!! The end of the obsession with fat free eating is a welcome development. Of course, it’s been replaced by an obsession with grains free eating. Sigh.
  • How the West became a self-obsessed culture: I’ve been meaning to pick up the book Selfie, for a while now. This reminds me to check it out sooner rather than later.
  • Out of Control:   This writer offers some commentary on how and why we have reached a point in our political and cultural evolution where the sane among us (I hope that includes you!) have been coerced into silence while the inmates run the asylums of media, academia, and government.
  • Jimmy Carter: You Are Dead Wrong– The fact that the author of this blog post is NOT a Christian is just one more indictment against the post modern American church. I agree with this brother completely -in the black sense since I just told y’all he’s not a believer.
  • Complementarian Man Authoritatively Delegates All Decision making to Wife: This is Babylon Bee, so it’s supposed to be satire. But…given the current culture of worshiping all thing woman, it rings eerily true.
  • Formality of Familiarity: How Should A Classroom Feel?– This article drew me in mostly because I related so closely with Mr. Gibbs’ spiritual journey which lead to his concluding thoughts about teaching and the classroom.
  • What happens when you give up plastic,  and is it a lifestyle for the lucky few? I’ve been on that particular journey too and gave up the fight, opting instead to do my small part at home to reduce the amount of plastic I send to the landfill. But the whole “giving up plastic” deal is not a workable solution for us. We’re too dependent on local shopping where plastic is ubiquitous.
