During Christmas Eve, Swedes serve a smorgasbord of select treats that follow a certain pattern, down to the types of food served and to the timing of the service. With that in mind, although it is much too early in the season to refer to a smorgasbord, here are a few favorites I have come across.
When God's Lovc Is So Big It Makes You Feel Uncomfortable, a thoughtful piece about the atonement, forgiveness, and Brock Turner made me think deeply. This particular passage is well-worth printing and referring to anytime grave injustices are done--which happens all the time.
But another way of interpreting this is that God loves EVERYBODY, including sinners like Brock Turner. That God is crying with Brock’s family and friends as they watch how his choices have forever altered his life and the life of his victim. That God is supporting Brock as he suffers through the consequences of his sin just as much as God is working on healing the terrible, awful, almost irreparable wounds Brock inflicted behind that dumpster. It could mean that God would want us to pray for the survivor of the assault AS WELL AS the assaulter.I wrote the following comment on the blog piece:
I was so impressed by this article where the magazine cover of a popular teens' magazine is totally and appropriately revamped. This is the kind of magazine I want my daughters to read.
And, I've written too much tonight! What's the best thing you have read or listened to this week?
