Living with a weekly deadline – say something, funny, empathic, meaningful, not to deep, touching, sentimental, strong, filled with good doctrine but full of grace – whether you like it or not, turns the world into source material. I keep returning to Deuteronomy 6:6-7, “And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” I return to them because they remind me that the words don’t replace life, but fill it up. Likewise, we don’t say I’m going to stop living for an hour and spend time with God. The goal of discipleship is to live with God, to find or better to recognize God in those everyday things, when you walk and when you sit down, when sleep and when you get up.
So to clear out some good stuff I came across, but haven’t completely used. (Windows is telling me I need to reboot and I will lose this stuff on that reboot.)
IBM’s Watson (Oh great, they will replace me yet.)
The Math of Beauty (or why it is better to be Loved and Hated than merely liked.).
A test I actually ran with David (I need to take a video of that and post it.) (Very Cute Funny)
The Anchoress (a very wise woman, even if she is very Roman Catholic) on Authority
