Seven of the best articles I came across this week:

1. D. Scott Hildreth – Easter is Over. Now What? Easter is more than a date on the calendar; it is our way of life. The truths we preach, sing, and read about during this season should shape everything we do.

2. Matthew Hall – Loyalty Matters: The Misunderstood Virtue. How many organizational cultures are plagued by a false standard of loyalty, one that enables all sorts of misconduct and incompetence?

3. Mike Gilbart-Smith – Show Up! Remote, virtual, disembodied fellowship simply isn’t enough. We’ve made do with it. But hopefully it has caused us to value all the more the close, real, embodied gathering that anticipates how we will spend eternity—together in the presence of our Lord.

4. Harvest Prude – Election Reform Tug of WarIn case you’ve been wondering what the debate in Georgia is all about, check out Harvest’s reporting that lays out the issues. 

5. Ian Parker – HGTV Is Getting a RenovationI’ve always been intrigued by the popularity of shows about house hunting and home makeovers. Here’s a brief history of HGTV and a summary of where the channel is headed.

6. Donald Mace Williams – A Nonagenerian’s Corona Year. What right did I have to be 90 in the first place?… As people did in the Thirties and Forties, I told myself I was here and I was lucky. Maybe the word was blessed.

7. Kate Shellnutt – InterVarsity Wins Suit Against Wayne State. The judge ruled that the First Amendment protects religious organizations’ rights to select their own ministers, and that the InterVarsity chapter’s student leaders qualified as ministers.
