Things I love? Reasonable people saying reasonable things. Freedom to Marry, Freedom to Dissent: Why we Must Have Both, is a statement signed by a number of respected, thinking people saying that they support gay marriage AND they support the right of others to disagree without being punished. And here’s a statement from Dale Carpenter at Volokh explaining how he does and does not agree.
Esther Emery’s Why I Will Not Leave the Evangelical Church Today. Another piece of nuanced, compassionate writing from my friend in Idaho.
Joy the Baker has a story/recipe combo post on her blog, making The Old-fashioned, which is (after a bit of trial and error) her cocktail. It looks awesome and like it would bring a little extra credibility and sophistication to a night out.
Finally, we’ve got a Writing Lessons post from Emily Maloney that has stayed with me this week. She writes about how she learned to put into practice the important writing mantra of showing up and getting it done. Reminds me about what Anne Lamott said at the Festival of Faith and Writing, and a new effort to write words on pages at #6am led by my new friend Ed Cyzewski.
