As part of my ongoing process of unplugging from Facebook, I want to find a new method for sharing things I’ve found meaningful throughout the week. I link to online articles as much as the next guy (more, maybe) on Facebook, and twice already today I’ve gone to do just that. So I’m going to try a new system, publishing a list of whatever I’ve found link-worthy at the end of each week.
Here’s for today:
As I was grasping at ideas for what to say about Joseph for my children’s advent devotional, and coming up with nothing good, I turned to the ever-lovely Google for inspiration, and found this two-year-old piece by a Los Angelos writer, published on Busted Halo: Joseph, Hope, and Joy. Hope you enjoy it.
And this one was a link from one of those Facebook acquaintances I am getting ready to unfriend, a fellow I immensely enjoyed meeting in 2008 when I attended a summer conference of the Acton Institute. It speaks my mind perfectly, capturing what I think is one of the greatest values of following the rhythm of the liturgical year. I give you How the Liturgical Calendar Keeps Me Sane, written by Tish Harrison Warren at the Well, a blog of InterVarsity.
Happy Advent Eve, all!
