Weekly Links: The It's-Still-Christmas Edition

~ Links to some interesting reading, FOR What's left of your weekend ~

- "Twelve Days of Christmas Jollification"  - A primer on when the Twelve Days of Christmas actually started.

"The Prophetess Anna Praises Christ": a beautiful meditation on Anna meeting the Christ child.

"Aspire to be Fezziwig: Isn't It Time to Grow Up?"

-"People Disagreed with Jesus About the Bible Too"

-"Mary and Jesus and Me"

-"'An Odd Sort of Mercy': Jen Hatmaker, Glennon Doyle Melton, and The End of the Affair"

-"I'm On the Lookout for the Next Great Christian Novel"

-"How to Parent Without Regret": I needed to read this one this week.

-"The Bloody Attempt to Kidnap a British Princess"

-"Rules for Writers: Be Imperfect"

-"Why Can't We Read Anymore?"

-"It's Not Just You: Garfield Is Not Meant to Be Funny"

And, because I was reminded recently that if you've published a book, you ought to remind people of it every once in awhile...

-"Let Us Keep the Feast: Living the Church Year at Home" - a good resource if you want to learn more about why it's still Christmas, or if you want to learn how to celebrate any of the seasons that are coming up soon.

And that's it! I hope you have a lovely New Year's Day, and a good first week of 2017!

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
