Why Should Anyone Get Married? ; Black Leaders and Zimmerman; Apologetics; How Millenials Think

Weekend Links

Baseball is on the radio again. The sun is shinning after a rain. We emptied more boxes last night and this morning I put a bunch of Christmas and other things in the attic. We are starting to get settled in at 734 S. Jordans Court. Lots of interesting links here.  As always, just because I have a link here doesn’t mean I agree with everyone or everything in any particular one. But all of them will help you think better about the issues they engage. Enjoy.

  1. Thank you for sharing the Zimmerman clip with Barkley. I found it interesting, perhaps evidence and how the case was prosecuted is why the verdict of not guilty. Also, our laws are very sketchy for any person it must have been difficult for the jurors to decipher. I hope that some sort of peace can come to ALL of those involved in this tragic case. Allie
