November 30, 2011

  • Emily Rapp on her journey as a “dragon mom,” parenting a child with a terminal diagnosis (NY Times op-ed)
  • David Nilsen on the challenges of leaving (and finding) a church
  • Laura Leonard on why women are obsessed with Pinterest
  • Brett McCracken on the Coldplay effect
  • Richard Mouw on why Mormonism is not a cult, plus a response to those who think he doesn’t understand it (or knows it too well)
  • Andy Rowell on using Hitler in Facebook posts
  • John Ortberg on when God seems far away
  • Mary DeMuth on why church (still) matters
  • David Gushee on the rhetorical use of “sacredness of life” language
  • Scot McKnight on whether Steve Jobs’ legacy can be called ‘kingdom work’
  • Cheryl

    Great links, Loon. I personally like the new Coldplay album, but it seems like many of my friends (including those who consider themselves fans of the band) hate it. Ke garne?

    I like it too, as does your 4-year-old nephew. How disappointingly mainstream of us.
