Atheist Converts; Game of Thrones Hopelessness; Government Horrors; and much more

Weekend Links

Got to play some golf yesterday at a Young Life fund raiser.  My team was less than sterling but we received a reward for losing big — each of us received a copy of the Robert Duval movie, Seven Days in Utopia.  Haven’t seen it but think Duval is great in almost everything, especially westerns. Looking forward to watching it tonight with my bride.  I’m also looking forward to Father’s Day tomorrow and a possible visit from one of our daughters.  Have a great day of worship tomorrow and remember, I just link them here. I don’t necessarily endorse everything in the links below.
