Sunspots 531

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


Christianity: Relevant warns us against claiming God's favor. Among other things, the article points out that some football kickers point to the sky when they hit a field goal, but not when they miss . . .

Relevant also gives us some warning signs that we might be legalistic.


A meditation on how we should love others, as God loved us.

Computing: Christianity Today (surprise!) has an article on ways to spot fake "news." There's so much of it out there, I'm sorry to say.

A robot visited the White House, and the President. Really.

Health: (or something) clothing that makes it easier for autistic children, or demented adults, to dress themselves.
Science: (and Food) Wired reports on the microbiology of cheesemaking.


National Public Radio reports, here, here and here, on the importance of yogurt, and the history of yogurt use.

"11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it." (Bible Gateway)
When the kicker fails, maybe it's the other team pointing to the sky. ;-)

Good articles, all of them!

Yes, maybe the other team does. But God sends the rain (and, presumably, the field goals) on the just and the unjust.
