These are Worth Your Time!

Here’s two post I really enjoyed. We’ll probably get to talk about them at some time.

4 Reasons for Suffering

While this is not the final word on suffering and why God allows it to occur in our lives, I do appreciate Pastor Brian Cosby’s insightful excerpt from his book on this subject. I wholeheartedly agree that the American church has lost “a biblical view of suffering.”

Reading v. Entertainment

Although this is  wrapped in a post on parenting, this is a piercing commentary on our culture’s love of entertainment. It reminded me of the French philosopher Pascal and his stinging assessment of humanity’s love of “diversions” (Pascal’s word for entertainment): “Being unable to cure death, wretchedness and ignorance, men have decided, in order to be happy, not to think about such things.”

See all my Cadre folks Thursday night!
