What I’ve Been Reading

Is Google Making Us Stupid? (The Atlantic). I’m currently reading this author’s book, The Shallows, which he has published to expand on this original essay. The title speaks for itself — but it’s truth may be worse than we want to know. www.theatlantic.com/magazine/is-google-making-us-stupid/

The Opposite of Loneliness (Yale Daily News). A university columnist’s final words on her college memories, before she was tragically killed in a car accident. Her words parallel my own thoughts so closely (“We don’t have a word for the opposite of loneliness, but if we did, I could say that’s what I want in life.”).

Jogging Increases Life Expectancy (The Independent). Score — this is for real! Shout out to Cristina, who pointed me to this article. independent.co.uk/life-style/jogging-increases-life-expectancy

Grace in Broken Arrow (This Land Press). One of those can’t look away from the train wreck type articles. A young P.E. teacher, respected by all at the Christian School he taught at, was found to be a serial molester of young boys in his P.E. classes. Horrifying and spellbinding: this could happen anywhere. http://thislandpress.com/05/23/2012/grace-in-broken-arrow/

Kid’s To-Do List (Huffington Post). Truth & perspective. huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/23/kids-to-do-list

For the Graduate: Yes and No (Turning Pages). MORE truth & perspective: “When you’re in high school, everything feels so much bigger than it ever really is…Don’t be afraid to say yes.” We all exaggerate our decisions — is saying yes to a Wendy’s run at midnight really going to affect the rest of your life? Say yes til you know yourself. anniesbutterworth.blogspot.com/for-graduate-yes-and-no

Hebrews (I’ve been loving this book recently):

4: 12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
