  • An Open Apology to the Local Church: Here’s where I need to confess my true feelings about you, Church: The romance of our earlier days has faded. The longer I have known you, the more I weary of your quirks and trying character traits. Here’s one: You draw people to yourself whom I would never choose to spend time with. Every Sunday, it seems, you put me in contact with the older woman who thinks that angels and dead pets are everywhere around us. You insist on filling my coffee hour with idle talk of golf, the weather, and grandchildren. (Christianity Today)
  • Encounters with Orthodoxy: I would never be the same Protestant I had been. I understood in a more tangible way than I could have imagined the significance of the “smells and bells” of worship, the careful attention to the worshipping body as well as the worshipping spirit, the sense that God didn’t exist “in my heart,” but also out there in a big, strange world that demanded to be perceived through my senses. (Books and Culture)
  • How Can I Best Absorb Information While Reading: Impress yourself with powerful mental images, make associations with what you already know (and make sure you learn the basics to start), and repeat this exercise several times. Work to become better at remembering and you will become better at remembering everything you want. (Lifehacker)
