Here is this week’s list of blog posts, comics, poetry, short stories, quotes and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

Too many have dispensed with generosity in order to practice charity. – Albert Camus

Faith. This poem reminds me of the stubbornly whimsical stuff I did while growing up.

We’re Not So Different, You and I. Everyone preaches being yourself (whether they actually mean it, though, is fodder for another blog post. 😉 ) This post is about the important of being the same.

A Confab With the Faithful. 20 Methodists and one Atheist meet at a skyscraper church to talk about religion, science, belief and doubt. This may sound like the opening to a joke. It isn’t. I do wish that you and I could have participated in the discussion, though. People who genuinely enjoy listening to and learning from other points of view don’t cross your path every day!

Feminist Friends. To quote The Princess Bride, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

Ponies. This is one of the most creative sci-fi/horror stories I’ve ever read. Yes, the allegory is macabre but the author pushes these boundaries in order to shake us out of our complacency. It’s much easier to see the unhealthy aspects of other cultures than it is to notice our own.

A final thought on advice:

What have you been reading?

  1. Awesome comic trip. It reminds me of my sister. Sometimes I feel like saying, “I would do as you do, if I wanted to be like you, but it turns out I don’t.”
