The Best of the Web (03/09/12)

First of all, I am asking each of you for prayer.  Revolution, the church I helped planted desperately needs a new worship space. We were nearly flooded out this week and it doesn’t appear to be getting better any time soon.  Less importantly, I have also been battling pneumonia and would appreciate a few prayers, myself.

Now, here’s what’s been happening on the whole interweb thing this week:

Friends

My compadre-in-arms Pastor Dave’s great new series Necro-Theology including this one on his response when someone recently stated that our church has “too many druggies.”

Dave’s much better half, Krista, wrote an outstanding post at Beauty for Ashes arguing that What Ever the Question is, The Answer is Love.

Jon over at Stretched has posted his weekly Ice Breaker.  Take a look here.  My answer, Jason Bateman.

Alex over at Entreprelife on How to Settle Old Credit Card Debt. You can find it here.

Larry at Deuceology on 2 lessons he recently learned from the Apostle Paul.  Check it out here.

Sports, Pop Culture and Politics

Motorhead has launched a line of wine? I’m a big Lemmy fan but that just sounds gross.  I hope he doesn’t stomp the grapes with his own feet.

The kid who played Anakin in The Phantom Menace states that the movie ruined his acting career.  Don’t worry, it also ruined George Lucas’s as well.

Did you hear Bill Simmons’ podcast with the legendary Bill James (the man behind the stats behind Moneyball?).  If you are a baseball fan, check it out here.

One writer at the Washington Examiner argues that the math virtually guarantees that Romney will win the GOP nomination.

This week, a number of stars like George Clooney and Brad Pitt read a play about Proposition 8, the Amendment to the California Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman.  You can read about it here.  After a viral video reminded people about the horrors that have transpired in Uganda over the last 10 years, this is what Hollywood spends its time doing? Yikes.

Theology

Denny Burk on Joseph Kony and a CT article on the same.

Andy Naselli on C.S. Lewis, Jonathan Edwards and the atonement.

and Russell Moore on why imposters love the church.

Check out all of these links and tune back in this afternoon for my take on Rick Santorum’s sissy move, tomorrow for thoughts on theology & film, Sunday for reflections on church & march madness and next week for an overview of Romans 11, a review of Lauren Winner’s new book, more on building a Logos Bible Software library, a prediction about the GOP primary race & the possibility of a 2nd term for Obama and more on the Constitution.

Until then, grace and peace.
