Sunspots 68

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

From last week's Christian Carnival, a short, but scriptural and pertinent, entry on holding the tongue. Another one (by a woman) on undressed women in church. Parableman discusses arguments for and against various models of origins, based on the amount of time God might have taken to create things.

A Complete Guide to Digital Cameras and Photography (On-line shortcourse ).

A thorough attempt at answering "What Makes Christian Speculative Fiction 'Christian', Anyway?"

First Thoughts on Christian Writing, from Mike. (He points out that bloggers are writers!)

A Jewish contributor to Slate, who hasn't really read the Old Testament before, is reading through it. (The link is to the 4th post. There will probably be later ones.)

A gallery of photos of crop circles, from Wired. Some of them are amazing!

This week's Christian Carnival is here. (For information on locating these Carnivals, see here)

When I don't tell where I found an item above, I either found it directly, or was probably pointed to it by the Librarian's Internet Index, SciTech Daily, or Arts and Letters Daily. All of these sources are great.

Thanks for reading! Keep clicking away.

Martin, I found you through a comment you made on another Christian Carnival post. Thanks for posting these.

I've gone to 'undressed' and read! She hits the nail right on the head! This goes on in our church, and I find myself feeling ashamed for them! I wonder where the Mother was when a couple of these girls got dressed - only to find her dressed in similar fashion. And, these are members!

Somehow, I missed some of these posts. Off to read 'holding the tongue' now.

Thanks! I try to point out interesting stuff.

hey there, Martin, thanks for the plug.

As for these women who are having trouble dressing themselves - these are the GROWN UPS. Not teens. Sorry for shouting, but you'd think they would know better. Sigh.

And I'm not the least bit surprised Barbara has the same difficulties in her own fellowship.

Well, that sort of thing is an obvious case of the church living by the world's standards, I guess. Thanks.
