Weekend Reading, 17 July

What you may have missed, or what's worth reading again...

News:

Blogs:
  • Inspiring history that led Glynn Young to the High Calling Blogs.
  • You could spend all weekend getting in the summer mood by reading all the posts at Bridget Chumbley's blog carnival. But why are you doing that? Go outside!
  • But if you read any of the entries, read this. The post from Jason Stasyszen at Connecting to Impact is honest and vulnerable and reminds us that the tragedies we face in life often lead us to where we are today.
  • And if you're looking for something to do while on summer vacation, maybe you could go on a mission trip to the Sudan. That's what Sarah Salter is doing. Please keep her in your prayers.

My pleasure. I lost my dad when I was 20. It wasn't sudden, it was cancer. I used to think I would've preferred it to be the other way, but now I don't know. But I did learn that I either had to grow from it or spend the rest of my life sulking. Thanks for the comment.

Hey, Papa Frank, your my kinda guy. In fact, 'ceptn for the age difference, I'da thot you WERE me. Lots in common. Passion for fathering (and grand type, too), Ransomed Heart, campus ministry (a few years in CCC) and, especially, your passion for and gift for writing.

I did find it hard to comment,typical of Blogger ( I know, I are one). In fact, I just made a post you'll like, I think. Shuttle over to Wild Gray Goose (www.newseason.us). It's about time. And the book. And The Walk.

Would like to know you better. Following you on Twitter. I say a couple of things a day...part of the "build you tribe" thingy publishers are pushing. www.Generationalfathering.com is the book platform.
