Here are a five stories I have come across recently that I have enjoyed:
How to Change Your Mind: It's the time of the year when many people are looking for new Bible reading plans for the new year. Check out this idea from Joe Carter. I found it somewhat similar to an idea from John MacArthur that I have blogged about previously.
Windowless Worship: The Demise of Stained Glass and the Church’s Dark Age: I enjoyed this short piece from Collin Garbarino lamenting the demise of the use of stained glass in church buildings.
You Belong at the First Christmas: In this post, Aaron Earls shows us how we can relate to those who were present at the first Christmas.
'Let It Be': Mary's Radical Declaration of Consent: Here Karen Swallow Prior writes about the importance of Mary's consent to bear the Incarnate God, in response to the blasphemous accusations of rape from recent years.
Diagnosing the Home Alone burglars' injuries: A professional weighs in: Home Alone is one of my favorite Christmas movies -- perhaps it's because I'm nearly the same age as Macaulay Culkin (who was really 10 in the movie, rather than the character Kevin's age of 8). In this fun post, a doctor weighs in on the condition the burglars would have really been in had they actually sustained all of the torture that Kevin put them through in real life.
