Monday, September 19, 2005Here's some links for your Monday morning.
To begin, former head football coach at the University of Alabama Bill Curry has a fantastic article on former Heisman Trophy winner Danny Wuerffel's work in New Orleans at Desire Street Missions. I've always heard great things about Desire Street, and I have a newfound respect for Wuerffel. Read this one even if you're not a sports fan; it's that good.
Both of my parents have jobs that can be quite stressful, but we very often ate dinner as a family while growing up. They still do, though I no longer live at home. I was surprised to learn, once I arrived in college, how many peope don't do that. Of course some families can't for whatever reason, but a great many just...don't. Sad, I think, and so do a lot of other people.
Here are two good blogs. First, John Mark Reynolds is a philosophy professor at Biola University, an Easteran Orthodox believer and a challenging blogger. Reading his site is always a helpful exercise for me.
Hugh Hewitt has put together the One True God blog, with scholars from a variety of Christian backgrounds. This should make for very interesting and fruitful reading as it develops.
Here's two thoughtful pieces on cultural matters from Al Mohler; see this and this.
Lastly, here's an insightful blog by a Catholic convert, a friend of friends.
