Thursday is for Thinking Interesting article from Relevant Magazine early last week. The article was by COLE NESMITH, titled “Yes, the World is Getting Better”.

Thursday is for Discipleship I confess that I have never read any of John Updike’s works, save an essay or two. I have been intrigued by his books nevertheless.
