Weekend Wanderings

For some, this is the week we pause to give thanks for all of the blessings God has given us. Others commemorate the time by eating too much, and then watching football or battling the crowds at all the stores. Some have a hard time coming up with things to be thankful for. It can be the beginning of a hard season for some. If you know someone who is struggling this time of year, try to spend some time with them and let them know that someone does care about them.

Here are the links:

Weekend Wanderings

It has been a rough week in parts of the country. The hatred and vitriol that has marked the country the past couple of years has gotten worse in the months leading up to the midterm elections. The worst dialogue and actions are being carried out by a minority of folks on either side. I pray that enough people wake up to the damage that is being done and refuse to listen to those that would further divide us.

On to the good stuff:

Screen dangers.
Sinners and saints.
Don't be a Stepford Wife.
Satire? Maybe.
Good post on Halloween.

A warning.
Classic iMonk post on Reformation Day.
This is unfortunate.
Have you ever seen anything like this?
Most people go up the inside of a skyscraper. Not this guy.

Best nature photos.

Lessons learned.
Funny post.

A bit of history.
Reflections on Eugene Peterson.
Good post from Karl Vaters.
Good post from Bob Edwards.
Linchpin of our faith.

Have a blessed week!
