Top Church Trends; New York Times and Calvinism; 255 Obama Lies; Apps, Teens and Parents; and much more

Weekend Links

a_friend_loves_atI don’t know where I first read it. I don’t even know if I remember the quote right. But it went something like this:

“A friend is someone who knows the song of your life and can sing the melody line for you when you have forgotten it.”

My hope for you in the New Year is that you will find many such friends and be that kind of friend to others. Be the kind of friend that knows and loves others so much that the friendship is about what you can do for them rather than what they can do for you.

The links this week are fewer but a great start on the New Year. Enjoy, but remember, just because I include it here doesn’t mean I agree with everything contained in it.
