Stuff I read this week

January 20, 2012

I started thinking about how so many bloggers have weekend links or something to keep readers’ interest up between posts.  Then I started thinking about how I wouldn’t have anything to offer my two readers because I don’t get to read much during the week.  But, then I had what Oprah and her legions would call an “Aha! moment”  While I don’t get to sip coffee every morning with a copy of The Washington Post  or The New York Times in hand, I do read.  I use my iPhone for my devotion time.  I read things on Facebook.  I click links on Twitter.  I have a Google Reader that’s seriously neglected and my new love, Pinterest, actually gives me even more things to look at, so…”Aha!”  Links!  I’m going to make an effort to publish a weekend links post every Friday with things that caught my [limited] attention that week.  And now that I’m thinking about it, it really didn’t require all of this prefacing.  But, hey, that’s blogging.

Stuff I watched:

  • Approximately 42 of my Facebook friends posted that “Why I Hate Religion, but Love Jesus” ridiculousness.  I’ve seen many of the counterpoints to that, but this one is pretty fly.  And super-Catholic (but us Protestants can still listen and be thankful for his ecumenically-friendly language):
  • Um, President Obama’s homage to Reverend Al Green:

Hm. Had more links than I thought I would.  Peace.

    An online acquaintance of mine actually wrote that NCR piece to the mother with one child. meh, maybe on our next phone call I’ll tell you what I thought of the tone.

    also! I really like Kathleen Norris. My fave of hers is The Cloister Walk, but Dakota is pretty awesome too.

      Yes. I’m most fond of Acedia and Me, but I think often your first walk with an author is your favorite. I liked the NCR piece, but honestly found the conversations it started more interesting than the article. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
