For Good Friday (and for Easter), I would recommend reading the following:
- The -ations of the cross
- 6 things Christ accomplished in his death
- Since when did bunnies have eggs?
- Why did Jesus have to die?
- 5 suggestions for observing Good Friday
- Holy Week: What happened on Good Friday?
Unrelated to this weekend, but still highly important to think through is a rather interesting conversation started by Carl Trueman raising questions about Christian celebrity culture, and then offering some thoughts on advertising in relation to mega-conferences.
From there, it gets a little humorous (or for Trueman, humourous) as Thabiti cries uncle, but offers to edit a festschrift in honor of Carl Trueman, to which Trueman responds he would be honored to decline. In the middle of all that, Paul Levy shares a story that relates.
Unrelated to that conversation, but still worth your time:
- Carl Trueman (he had a busy week!) reminds us that historical significance is hard to judge in the present. (via)
- A plea to parents to take responsibility for the sexualization of young girls. (via)
- Douglas Wilson has 7 memes for keeping Christians in their place.
- What if you already had an A?
- An apologetic response to Ricky Gervais
- Tim Challies on resisting consumeristic temptations
This was my last week of classes (yes!), so I didn’t really post that much, but I did raise the question of whether Inception attempts inception.
I also made some updates to the blog, mainly yesterday and today. I’m following advice from John Saddington’s (aka TentBlogger) series Developing Great Blog Content That’s Read and Ranked.
I would highly recommend following along if you are a blogger. I’ve already implemented a new theme, deleted all my tags, and refined and focused my categories (which you can read about here). I’ll keep you updated as I do more.
Have a great Easter weekend!
