Odds and Ends

coffee.jpgToday, I have been reading large sections of John Stott’s new book, The Living Church.  I will post about this fine book next week.

If you are fairly new to this blog, you might want to browse through My del.icio.us on the sidebar.  These are websites and other materials that I have tagged by topic.  You might enjoy looking at some of these.

Most of what you see on my sidebar are sites I actually use.  I have the various news sites listed because I regularly skim these, paying attention to the titles of articles and subjects of headlines.  You will also notice that I have listed a number of book review sites.  I regularly read reviews just to be aware of what is being written and what many people are reading.  (It doesn’t take but one trip to Barnes & Noble for me to feel completely overwhelmed at the sheer number of books being published.)

The section that is titled "Just for Fun" simply reflects a few things I like.  For instance, the three sports sites listed are where I typically go to look for a score or read about a game.

The coffee cups on most posts reflect what I am often doing when I write.  I usually attempt to write something that might encourage someone.  I suspect that I often write because it helps me discover what I am thinking or feeling.

Finally, I read each one of your comments.  I read the e-mails you send.  I am thankful that you choose to read this blog.

Please note: I reserve the right to delete comments that are offensive or off-topic.
