This post from Jezebel really made me think: What Life is Like When Getting Your Period Means You are Shunned, by Rose George.
Once again, Kate from Eat the Damn Cake writes something that sticks with me. This week’s post, What Do Women Do All Day?, is kind of awesome and wonderful and, just like last week’s post about danger and whether you should save yourself or a stranger, sits in the tension that is so much of everyday life.
Richard Beck’s post on being a famous, influential Christian without being a jerk (or, as he calls it, On Christian Celebrity), was incredibly thoughtful. So much of what I read online is extremes and hyperbole, and this is just good thinking.
Alise has a post up about forgiveness entitled Redemption Only Through Failure?. She asks whether her marriage that began in an affair with the worship pastor of her church has to end in divorce for her to receive forgiveness and redemption and reconciliation with the Church. And to be honest, I don’t think there are any easy answers here.
Last but not least, my friend Osheta Moore’s post for A Deeper Story, Speaking Fear, Praying Shalom. Full disclosure: I was granted a preview of this post and provided a few editorial comments on the draft about a month ago, and I’ve been waiting and waiting for it to come out because I LOVE Osheta and her voice her is so important to the conversations around race and public safety and how we raise our children and how we make our world better. Please do read this.
