A La Carte (1/14)

I took my van in to the mechanic to have the rear wiper fixed (the whole arm had sheered off). On the way there I realized I was only a few kilometers away from needing an oil change, so figured I’d get that done as well. And now the mechanic calls to tell me that a ball joint is very nearly shot. And then that the ball joints aren’t sold separately but only attached to an arm or something like that, which means they cost a lot more. My morning is suddenly getting really expensive. And it’s not even 8:30 yet. It’s good thing this mechanic is a friend of mine…

Revolutions and Resolutions - This is a moving article from Delorenzo Flyer, a missionary with Africa Inland Mission. He writes about the genocide there and says “There are a million individual stories that define these tragedies - lost in the history books when they are written, but vastly more meaningful to actual history. A pastor in one of our partner churches in Torit shared part of his story with me in December.”

Banished Words - Here’s a 2011 list of words and phrases that ought to be banished because of overuse (or sheer stupidity, I suppose). Examples include “epic,” “fail,” “live life to the fullest.”

Are We Too Obsessed with Facebook? - The answer it seems, is yes, as this infographic clearly illustrates. For example, a study shows that 48% of 18 to 34 year-olds checks Facebook as soon as they wake up. Obsession? Sure sounds like it.

Sexual Detox - Christian Book Notes has a kind review of Sexual Detox. “If you are going to purchase one book on sexual immorality to give to a young man, I would recommend giving them Sexual Detox.  It is short and will keep the reader’s attention.”

NYC Pregnancies - This is almost too awful to believe: just about 40% of pregnancies in New York City result in an abortion.

Adopt Rinah - This is a fantastic little video:

Football Miss(es) of the Year - Just a little something to brighten your morning:

If I have observed anything by experience it is this: a man may take the measure of his growth and decay in grace according to his thoughts and meditations upon the person of Christ, and the glory of Christ’s kingdom, and of his love. —John Owen
