1. Worship Without Words

    Words enable us to think and say the same things together, rooting our unity in the gospel and not simply in a shared experience. A hundred people listening to a song being played can have a hundred different thoughts about what is happening. As my friend Jon Payne has said, “A picture is worth 1000 words. The problem is, the viewer gets to decide what those words are.” ~ Bob Kauflin

  2. Switchfoot: “Ammunition”

    Blame it on what you’ve been through
    Blame it on what you’re into
    Blame it on your religions
    Blame it on politicians

    We’ve been blowing up
    We’re the issue
    It’s our condition

    We’ve been blowing up
    We’re the issue
    We’re ammunition
    We’re ammunition
    We’re ammunition
    We are the fuse and ammunition

    I have no generation
    Show me my motivation
    One world one desperation
    One hope and one salvation

    ~ Youtube

  4. A little poppy-er of a song than I typically listen to, but the lyrics ring very true.

    Whatever you do, just don’t look back.
    Oh somebody needs the light you have.
    Whatever you do, just don’t lose heart.
    Keep on pushing back the dark,
    Keep on pushing back the dark.

    ~ Josh Wilson, Matthew West, and James Tealy

  5. Internet “Discussions”

    Who knew that Nineteen Eighty-Four, a novel written by George Orwell (published in 1949), would be such an accurate example of what it’s like to have Internet discussions?

    The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic. And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one object to another like the flame of a blowlamp.

  6. Those are some cute blankets you have there baby.

  7. Let it be counted folly or frenzy or whatsoever. It is our wisdom and our comfort; we care for no knowledge in the world but this, that man has sinned and God has suffered; that God has made himself the sin of men and that men are made the righteousness of God.

    Richard Hooker

  8. Google: Blink (Wait, wasn't Google Nose an April Fools Joke?)

    Instead of prefixes it will use flags: if you want to enable an experimental feature, set the appropriate flag in about:flags. (Incidentally, this means that experimental CSS features that would be prefixed are not available to the average user, who won’t set any flags.)

    This section strikes me as wrong. One of the great things about vendor prefixes was that the average user would get these “upgrades” without realizing it. If a new CSS property was available then developers could target it and the end-user had to do nothing on their side to see the improvement. Now it’s hidden in about:flags?

    I hope they change their mind about that.
