One of my goals for this blog is to be a place where people, including me, can learn. Because of this blog, I am pushing myself to read books and articles, to learn more about issues affecting the church and the world. So once a week, I’m going to post links to blog articles that I’ve found thought-provoking, and I think my readers might as well.
A few disclaimers:
- Just because I post a link doesn’t mean I agree with the article 100%. Just that I think it’s good food for thought.
- I read a lot of good posts in any given week. There’s a lot of stuff that I find edifying or helpful that I don’t post here. This post is specifically for thought-provoking and educational links about issues I care about or I think my readers would be interested in.
- In the future, I’ll limit myself to posts from the past week. Since today is my first go at this, I’m being a little looser with that.
- Not really a disclaimer: Feel free to recommend links in the comments. 🙂
And now for the links!
- RELEVANT Magazine, talking about faith in college, with 6 Ways to Waste Your College Education

And to wrap up, the most popular post on my blog this past week:
