Stories I Thought You’d Like (Late May)

Every so often I hope to share with you some stories that stood out to me and may be of interest to you, too.


Christian Living

If I Were 22 Again – John Piper (Desiring God) Length: Medium

“…it seemed to me I should go in the direction of, “What are the most important things I would do at 22?” Not in the abstract, but the real me where I was and who I was in 1968. What if I started over with all the same circumstances in place?”

Introducing the Pain-Pleasure Worldview – David Williams (Gospel Coalition Australia) Length: Short

“Guilt-innocence is eroding as the worldview of western culture. I think we are moving from being a guilt-innocence culture to becoming a pain-pleasure culture.”

Bishop Michael Curry’s royal wedding sermon – CBS News (Youtube) Length: 13 mins

Curry’s sermon during the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan has many people buzzing for all sorts of reasons. Regardless of your opinion, it’s worth hearing it so you can use it as a springboard for conversation about the gospel. I’m now of mixed feelings about the content and delivery, but it’s doubtlessly entertaining, and hopefully useful.

Humor

Kellogg’s Introduces New Relient K Cereal – Babylon Bee – Length: Short

‘Relient K frontman Matt Theissen stated he was hopeful that this cereal would further the band’s career in a changing music industry. “I really hope this product will be my escape from the pop punk scene into a wider mass market audience.”’

  1. If I Were 22 Again – is such a powerful piece! When I was sharing this with Mark, my husband, he said that he has several of John Piper’s book on top of his List of Books TO READ *this year*!! How about that?! Bless you heaps, brother!
