Remainders (12/10)

Why is X Used when it Replaces Christ in Christmas? by R. C. Sproul. (Hint. It's not to blot Jesus from the holiday.)

Is Christmas Worth Defending? Bethany Keeley-Jonker writes, "The more I think about Christmas traditions, the more I discover a strange amalgam of silly (but fun) cultural traditions, Christian symbolism, and unbridled consumerism. . . ."

Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts by Jerry Bridges is free in the kindle version for a while. You don't need the kindle; just download kindle software to your mac, pc, or just about any other device. I downloaded the book and am looking forward to reading it. I really liked his The Crisis of Caring.

A Wikileaks Society Tim Challies muses, "My fear is that the Wikileaks mentality may just seep out into all of society so we become a society that delights in exposing one another, in which we are all seeking to bring to light not just what we’ve done, but the motives behind what we’ve done."

Children Around the World Celebrate Christmas is a book we have been enjoying at the preschool.
