Hello, and welcome to another edition of “Links I Like,” a weekly collection of links and stories that impacted me in some way during the past week. Let’s get right to it!
Hello and welcome to another edition of “Links I Like,” a weekly collection of stories from around the Internet that impacted me in the past week. Lots of stuff to get to this week, so let’s jump right in!
Another week has come and gone, and we stand on the brink a new year. 2016 was filled with not a small amount of emotion, but this morning we get to sit back and enjoy some fantastic stories from across the web. Hope these are as impactful on you as they were me!
It is always surprising and even a little shocking to see just how opposite to our ways and our will God works. Our normal reactions, plans, and intentions are often thwarted by the upside-downness of God’s economy, and this is many times seen in visceral ways throughout the Bible.

Merry Christmas, readers! Thank you so much for sticking with me this past year. I’m looking forward to many more exciting things to come in 2017.
It’s Christmas Eve! I hope, wherever you are, that you’re warm and with family, and are able to reflect on the amazing grace of God’s incarnation into this fragmented world of ours. In case you need something to read this weekend, please enjoy the collected links below.
Arrival marks the second science fiction film in the last 2 years that’s been ruined by my Christian worldview.
Welcome to another collection of links that have impacted me this past week. Hope you find them enlightening and encouraging.
I think one of the most unintentionally hilarious songs during the Christmas season is the umpteenth rendition of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” — because despite the wonderful sentiment, it’s not always the “hap-happiest season of all.” Sometimes, it’s quite the opposite.
With our ever-increasing commercialized society, words have lost much of their former weight and glory. The power and emphasis they held and arrested our minds with is now reduced to a slight pause. We’re no long capture or enthralled by the written language, save for when it’s constructed into 140-characters, or less. The most egregious of all reductions has to be with the word “epic.”
