Links: Vikings, good timing, prayer & more!

Lars Walker, an amateur Viking scholar (and, I have to add, a great fantasy author), analyzes the latest trailer for the new Thor movie. (You have to scroll down the embedded trailer to get to his analysis.) His musings on how a Christian (or even post-Christian) society assumes that any all-powerful deity must be all-good are very interesting.

Check out Learning As We Go's short-but-awesome post on how Timing Is Everything.

I liked this post on Teaching Our Children Through Prayer.

I also really like Catholic Icing's printable Lenten calendar for kids. I'm planning on printing it out and using it in our house. I think it'll help our kids visualize what we're doing. (It's really almost like an Advent calendar for Easter!)

This might be the best post on birth control I've ever read.

In my searching around the internet looking for Lenten information last week, I stumbled across the Pope's Lenten message for 2010. Great reading.

Have a good weekend, folks!

Thanks for the Linky!
I was one of the people last year who jammed Google Docs trying to print the Lenten calendar at the last minute, and I couldn't find the link-- so thanks! This year I'm ahead of myself!
