Okay! Now, on to the weekly links! Here's some good reading (and watching) for your weekend:
"I Have All the Time I Need": very encouraging thoughts on being busy (or not).
"Down with Random Acts of Kindness (What’s Best Next)":
It would be too much to say that Perman redeems the genre of productivity lit, but he has accomplished something pretty big here: he has written a productivity book that does most of the theological filtering for me! Instead of needing to supplement my reading with a big dose of the gospel, I find that it’s all already smoothly integrated. Perman has thought through his entire book as a detailed thought project on applying the gospel to the life of work."From Father to Son — J.R.R. Tolkien on Sex":
Tolkien dearly loved his children, and he left a literary legacy in the form of letters. Many of these letters were written to his sons, and these letters represent, not only a hallmark of literary quality, but a treasure of Christian teaching on matters of manhood, marriage, and sex. Taken together, these letters constitute a priceless legacy, not only to the Tolkien boys, but to all those with whom the letters have been shared.
And, finally, some nerdy English language goodness:
Peace of Christ to you,
