It’s been a wild week in American politics and church world. The Democratic National Convention kicked off by omitting “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance and ended by nominating the first woman to the presidency of the United States. As a life-long political junkie, the past two weeks have been intriguing if not infuriating. In between the speeches and the pundits I’ve found time to read several posts that caused me to think and reaffirmed convictions I’ve held for decades. I hope that you enjoy and are helped by this week’s list, and don’t forget that just because I list an author or article here doesn’t mean that I fully endorse or even agree with them at all.
BONUS: Danny Macaskill: The Ridge.
“For the first time in one of his films Danny climbs aboard a mountain bike and returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland to take on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.”
