Sunspots 505

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

The Arts: Relevant has an opinion piece that says that Christians should care more about design -- in music, and in other arts, including book covers. There's a link to a compiled list of the worst Christian book covers of 2014, and yes, most of them are really awful.

Christianity: Relevant on "4 Ways the Modern Church Looks Nothing Like the Early Church." Pretty important ways, too.
Computing: Gizmo's Freeware reports on a free Windows program to list all your drivers, and their properties.
Health: National Public Radio reports on how difficult it is for veterans to get benefits. Shameful.
Politics: National Public Radio reports that the South Carolina Poet Laureate's poem was not read at the inauguration of Governor Nikki Haley, last week. The poem is included in the report.
Science: National Public Radio reports on the question of how humans come to like foods (like hot spices and coffee) that they didn't like when they were small children.
Wired tells us why squinting helps us see better.

Most interesting post on early vs modern Christianity. No wonder many interpreters of prophecy say that we're in the age of Laodicea.

Speaking of the ideals of Biblical Christianity, I ran across a very interesting article on Vincent Van Gogh! It seems he was a devout Christian who tried to live up to the teachings of Christ, and was vilified for it by "the church."

I didn't know that about van Gogh. I'll add that to the next Sunspots. Thanks!
