Welcome to your Friday! Below is your first October edition of the weekend reading – this will be a bit more abbreviated as I have been traveling and dealing with an increasingly busy election season. That being said, there are a handful of encouraging and informative articles, videos and blogs to check out – enjoy!
Let’s begin with a great little video from author and Christian teacher Jen Wilkin who spoke on the topic of ‘What Women Need Most for Better Bible Study’ at the Desiring God National Conference.
Business Insider has a list of some of the habits of people with mental toughness. A quick and interesting read that can be summed up this way: Perspective is Everything.
The New York Times details the latest MASSIVE cyber security attack. This one on JP Morgan Chase…
Along the lines of technology, there was an article a little while back worth scanning that deals with the ‘Friendlessness of Millennials’ and speculates (from a Christian perspective) why so many young people aren’t engaging with people in their immediate proximity, nor are do they trust people in general, so it seems.
John Piper taught a really encouraging lesson (this is part of a series) on Romans 8, which he calls ‘the best chapter in scripture’.
Carmine Pirone writes that the iPhone “Bendgate” is exaggerated…
Jon Bloom posted this blog on ‘Where Satan Will Attack You Today‘ that came at just the right time for me this week.
Also, there was a fascinating little article in the Washington Post about the CIA Starbucks – definitely a MUST READ for you coffee lovers and enjoyers of all things intrigue…
Lastly, I’ll leave you with this little piece of humor (or horror depending on your theological sensibilities!).
That’s it! Enjoy your weekend, and take a moment to wonder at the beauty of the Fall season.
