The first week of summer vacation is in the books. The World Cup has started, and it will be interesting to see how the U.S. team does. They have been somewhat inconsistent in the games leading up to the tournament, but they hopefully will set a good tone in their first match against England. The greatest basketball coach of all time died this week. John Wooden was an inspiration to coaches and fans alike.
My blog reading has been a bit spotty this week, but here are some of the good ones:
My daughter Jennie talks about a really cool camera rig.
Lessons in communication.
Sailing in deep waters.
A sign of the apocalypse?
Spiritual, but not religious.
Another viewpoint on mission trips.
Christian bait and switch.
What Jesus cares about.
The myth of the consumerist God.
Do you know your Bible? Part 2.
Thanks for reading my blog. Have a great weekend.
