The Links effect
It’s been a while since I last shared some significant link love. And I like doing these posts – it reminds me how much fun the blogosphere is…
I’m looking forward to working at a church that cares about the small things – like fonts – next year (not that our current one doesn’t – it’s just I don’t work for it). Simone is writing a new series of Sunday School material on 1-2 Kings.
Jeff’s sermon on evangelism prompted some interesting application of his application. He also posted on the gender pay issue that cropped up in the comments of Benny’s last (or second last) post.
Ali noticed that conversation starter cards are springing up everywhere.
Kutz designed a cool shirt and perhaps started a sub-movement.
Ben created a word game.
Tim posted some good analysis of the World Cup bid (and other Football goings on) via YouTube – Play Fair,
NIKE: TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL (high quailty), Balanced view of the world cup
Stephy at Stuff Christian Culture likes covered the wardrobe choices of “relevant” preachers in the US. But before that she took on two of my favourites – prayer requests as gossip and oversharing via prayer request. What’s worse than oversharing via prayer request is oversharing via prayer request on Facebook.
Lee who has turned into a regular comment in these parts has a couple of blogs – I guiltily enjoy Lemon Harrangue Pie more than the serious one about being a Contemporary Calvinist. But both are good stuff and I commend them to you.
Dave Miers has a great list of books people should read in their first year out of highschool – at the very least you could put them on your holiness shelf.
Andrew managed to pick a fight with some atheists on Tumblr. Having first picked one on Twitter.
Stuss reviewed Australia. She didn’t like it. I haven’t seen it. I don’t plan to. It’s a bit like the Passion. I know all the good bits so a movie is only going to cheapen the experience.
Conference blogging was all the rage – Izaac shared some thoughts on NTE talks.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the good stuff around the blogosphere but it has, for now, exhausted me.
If you’ve got something you wrote or read that is worth sharing – put it in the comments for all to see.
