Yep, it’s time for a shameless plug of our blog. The number of “hits” we get each day are far better than they were a year ago, but, over the last couple of months, they have stagnated. We aren’t about just getting numbers on the blog, but it is encouraging to see more folks coming and seeing what’s here.
That’s where you come in. Would you please pass along a favorite post (or just our blog address) to 5 people? If each person who regularly comes would just tell 5 people, we could easily raise our numbers. If that person would like to be on our email list, just send me an email (adfaughn AT gmail DOT com) and I’ll be glad to add him or her.
On to the links for this week:
1. Today is the annual March for Life, as we mark another horrible anniversary of Roe v. Wade. However, this year, there is a special twist to the March for Life for those who cannot physically attend. You can join the virtual March for Life (as I did). As of this writing, over 65,000 are in the virtual march, placing their names alongside those who are actually in Washington. If you’d like to know more, or join the virtual march, here is the website.
2. I love technology, but I am amazed at how much teens and tweens are “plugged in” to every type of media imaginable. Is it too much? Albert Mohler explores in his article, “Like the Air They Breathe.” Parents, preachers and elders need to read and file this one.
3. Joey Sparks obviously feels guilty about pulling for Alabama in the BCS Championship Game and is trying to make up for it by writing about Colt McCoy’s post-game interview. Just kidding. Joey puts some great thoughts to Colt’s words in “Give God the Glory.”
4. I hate failing. I hate working on something only to have it “shot down” or fall flat. Those experiences, though, can motivate us to greater things. Seth Godin shows us that in the life of a famous Hollywood producer in his post “Unrealized Projects.”
We hope you have a great weekend. We are looking forward to a weekend as a family before our schedule really starts to pick up for a while.
No matter what you are doing, don’t forget to worship the Lord on His day.
