Another Friday Bag of Internet Wisdom


Each Friday I share some of what I’ve found interesting on the Internet in the prior week. I read the Internet, I know, I know…it makes me stupid. On this Friday, enjoy the Internet I’ve found for you.

The Friday Bag

The Separation of Church and Hate (VIDEO) –   “Are we making a point or making a difference? It’s easier to make a point; to adopt a policy; to put up a billboard or hand out a pamphlet. Making a difference is messier. It requires relating to people with whom you may not agree. But that is what Jesus modeled. In this message, Andy shows us why relational evangelism – despite being more complicated and despite looking inconsistent at times – is what we were called to as a church.”

30 Bits of Commencement Wisdom for the Class of 2013 –    “It s graduation season, and that means platitudes are parading out the mouths of notable speakers everywhere.  Every year, speakers spew the same old sayings: Never give up! Embrace failure! Be passionate! Here s a look at speakers who said things a little differently this year.”

Daniel Dennett’s Seven Tools for Thinking –   “Cognitive scientist and philosopher Daniel Dennett is one of America’s foremost thinkers. In this extract from his new book, he reveals some of the lessons life has taught him.”

100 year old Never-before-seen photos tell gritty story of NYC –   “Almost a million images of New York and its municipal operations have been made public for the first time on the internet.”

The War on Sleep –  “There’s a military arms race to build soldiers who fight without fatigue.”
