Seems like all I can do these days is pass along other people's good writing rather than my own. Oh well. Life.
But I'm working on a bit of an explanation post as to what's been occupying much of my time and, sadly, my thoughts this fall. Next week. Maybe.
I promise I'll get my act together around here. I want to. I really do. I love you all and your kind words and your I-miss-you's. Thanks for those. Until then, here are some posts I have loved this week.
My blogging-turned-real-life-friend, Glenda, spent a day just planning for the busy season ahead. I have never thought of doing such a thing, but I sure would love it. In fact, I probably NEED a day like this. Preparing for the fast approaching train called . . . THE HOLIDAYS!!
Richard Stearns, author of The Hole in our Gospel, challenges the Christian church (well, me really) to put aside our worry about symbols and just start doing the gospel. "While symbols can be important, we have focused perhaps too much on them instead of the underlying reality they reflect. Instead, we need to go back to the basics of living as disciples of Christ, living missionally for Christ and demonstrating the Gospel in tangible ways within our schools, workplaces and communities." Wow, what a challenge. Goodbye, Christian America; Hello, True Christianity.

Oh, I have so much to say about this, but Ann always says it so much better than me. Read it, please. You may need some Kleenex. How to Not Miss Your Real Life Calling.
There you have it. A few of my faves from this week. I'm off to church and then to the city with B and Julia to see Les Miserables today. Enjoy your Sunday!
