Podcasts: I enjoyed talking about Rethink Your Self with Shane Morris on the Colson Center’s Upstream podcast.

Kindle Deal: Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds by Jen Wilkin. $3.99.

Seven of the best articles I came across this week:

1. John Stonestreet – A Demon’s Guide to the Election. “Note the progression: first, politics is part of religion. Then, politics is the most important part of religion. Then, religion becomes part of politics.” Great word from John, leaning on C. S. Lewis.

2. Yuval Levin – Either Trump or Biden Will Win. But Our Deepest Problems Will Remain. “At the heart of our pervasive crisis of alienation are widespread failures of responsibility, deep-seated cultural divisions and a deadly dearth of solidarity.”

3. ERLC Policy Staff – Explainer: What you need to know about Fulton v. Philadelphia. There was a very important religious liberty case about Catholic foster and adoption agencies heard at the Supreme Court this week. ERLC explains it well. See also Amy Howe – Argument analysis: Justices sympathetic to faith-based foster-care agency in anti-discrimination suit, who offers a recap of oral arguments. 

4. Mariano Zafra – A room, a bar, and a classroom: how the coronavirus is spread through the air. This is interesting new research (illustrated well) showing how Covid-19 transmission happens through the air and what factors mitigate the spread. Who knew ventilation mattered this much?

5. Griffin Gulledge – The Bereans Had No Bibles. “The Bereans had no Bibles. But they did have Christ. We have the Bible. And together, we should seek to find Christ there, and thereby be transformed into his image.”

6. Tim Challies – My Son, My Dear Son, Has Gone To Be With the Lord and Memorial and Funeral Arrangements for My Son. Devastating news from Tim and Aileen, who lost their twenty-year old son this week suddenly. Pray for him and the whole family. Lord be near.

7. Alana Semuels – The COVID-19 Pandemic Upended the Office. It’s Time to Radically Rethink How We Work. Office work was broken long before the pandemic. Technology has seamlessly connected workers to one another, but it’s brought with it an endless stream of distractions.
