2.  A missiological theology of the city – why is it important, and the city in scripture.

3.  Mark Batterson compares reading through Leviticus with driving through Iowa.  Mark, Mark, you should have said Nebraska or Kansas.  That would be a much better comparison!

4. Steve Brown’s thoughts on change.  We may not like it, but we do have to deal with it.  Happy retirement, well sort of, Steve!

5.  I love this quote from Andrew Jackson (the blogger, not the President).Asbury United Methodist Church - Washington, D.C.

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems  and then campaign against them.

6.  Thabiti Anyabwile on the legacy of the African-American Church.  An interesting read.

Here you can find the second half of this video segment. Wow.  That church reminds me of this

12.  Dr. Charmaine Yoest who heads Americans United for Life debated Dr. Art Caplan who is the director for the Center of Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania on Fox & Friends this weekend.

HT: The Point

13.  John Mark Reynolds didn’t like Rush Limbaugh’s speech at CPAC saying he’s not relevant.  Rachel Motte disagrees.  (HT: Evangelical Outpost here and here).

Members of the California Supreme Court

14.  Proposition 8 arguments – the very idea of a the California Supreme Court possibly ruling a constitutional amendment unconstitutional is asinine to me.  A prime example of judicial oligarchy if they do.  What’s even more asinine is they could decide to ban marriage altogether and just go with civil unions.

15.  Pro-life leaning medical groups shut out of the Obama Administration’s health-care summit on Friday.

19.  From the Enlightened Redneck:

A picture really is worth a thousand words. The global warming crowd gathered in Washington today to protest a coal power plant at the Capitol, and the Greenpeace solar-panel truck ended up being covered with snow from the March — yes, March — snowstorm.

The sign painted on the side says, “America can stop global warming.” Yes, we can! And we did; we stopped it cold with a snowstorm. (read the rest of his post)

20.  39% of Teens send sexual images of themselves.  (HT: Melissa Clouthier)

Update: Bonus Links!

I use Google Reader for my RSS feeds.  I find the “starred items” feature pretty helpful when I want to reference a news item or blog post to include in these lists, blog on in a separate post, or comment on later if I don’t have time.  Anyway, I realized I had a few more items I meant to include, but I “starred” them earlier on so they didn’t make the initial twenty.

21.  What to do if you are personally running on empty.

22.  Barack Obama’s TelePrompter dependence. (HT: Cassy Fiano)

23.  Hillary Clinton’s speaking gaffes – could you imagine if this was President George W. Bush?

24.  Transcript of (hypothetical) Obama-Putin negotiations.

25.  The Manliest cities in the United States.  (HT: Kansas Bob)

26.  Protect your marriage (and money) with a spending communication policy.

27.  A 12-step program for liberals.

2nd Update: Thanks for the link Rob, he liked #17.  Spot on.

  1. Wasn't criticizing that he uses one, but he has been overly dependent on one, more than any other President before him. Yes, even Bush.

    I mean using a teleprompter for quick announcements? During press conferences?

    Of course he will use one for speeches, no one questions that.
