Weekend Links

Here are five articles/blogs I’ve found thought provoking this week. Their topics range from Focus on the Family’s Super Bowl ad to Mizzou basketball. Enjoy.

1. Some positive aftermath of the “Tim Tebow Ad” – There was a lot of controversy regarding the Tim Tebow Superbowl ad. See Nathan’s post for a brief discussion before the ad actually aired, and keep in mind that after the ad aired, NOW accused it of advocating violence against women. Here’s a letter from a woman (and her soon-to-be-born baby) who was deeply impacted by the ad. It cost Focus on the Family $2.5 million. But it saved this woman much more.

2. What not to say when someone is suffering – Here’s a blog post from Ed Welch from CCEF (we like him a lot). His main point – don’t tell someone who is suffering “if you need anything, call me anytime.” You could argue with this, but his discussion was extremely convicting to me, a person who has uttered that phrase several times in the last two weeks.

3. “The Christianity Map” – Don’t have much to say about this, it’s just a visual depiction of what denominations dominate certain parts of the country. I found it interesting. For the record, Presbyterianism is getting its butt kicked in Missouri…and pretty much everywhere else too.

4. How ’bout them Tigers – For you Mizzou basketball fans out there (is that in The Crossing’s membership covenant? Might need to add that) here’s an article from CBS Sports following yesterday’s win discussing our chances of offing West Virginia tomorrow.

5. Suggestions to parents – Not from me. From C.J. Mahaney. Great wisdom here for any parent, whether your kid is 18 months or 18 years.
