steven-wright.jpg Happy Saturday! Here’s some Steven Wright to start us off.

  • Last time I went to the movies I was thrown out for bringing my own food. My
    argument was that the concession stand prices are outrageous. Besides, I
    haven’t had a Bar-B-Que in a long time.
  • One time I went to a drive-in in a taxi cab. The movie cost me $95.
  • I went to the cinema, and the prices were: Adults $5.00, children $2.50. So I
    said, “Give me two boys and a girl.”
  • I went to a restaurant that serves “breakfast at any time.” So I ordered
    French Toast during the Renaissance.
  • I went to this restaurant last night that was set up like a big buffet in the
    shape of an Ouija board. You’d think about what kind of food you want, and the
    table would move across the floor to it.
  • There’s a pizza place near where I live that sells only slices. In the back you
    can see a guy tossing a triangle in the air.
  • I went to a general store. They wouldn’t let me buy anything specifically.
  • Black holes are where God divided by zero.
  • Today I was arrested for scalping low numbers at the deli.
  • I was once walking through the forest, alone, and a tree fell right in front of me, and I didn’t hear it.
  • Yesterday I told a chicken to cross the road. It said, “What for?”
  • Yesterday I saw a chicken crossing the road. I asked it why. It told me it was none of my business.
  • I was sad because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet. So I said, “Got any shoes you’re not using?”
  • I took a course in speed waiting. Now I can wait an hour in only ten minutes.

Ah, I love that stuff. Shorter list of links this week, as I was short of reading time. I suppose I could have just dumped in a bunch of links to stuff I haven’t read, but that would just be too…. well, random, wouldn’t it?

  1. kathy escobar on why we need mothers & fathers, brothers & sisters, daughters & sons in church community
  2. Dan Sheffield asks, “do we need a missional ‘scorecard’?,” asking if the desire is evidence of modernist thinking. He reviews Newbigin’s six characteristics of [missional] community. By the way, establishing a new scorecard is the point (and subtitle) of Reggie McNeal’s recent book, Missional Renaissance
  3. An Interview with Os Guinness on the 25th Anniversary of Francis Schaeffer’s Death (yesterday)
  4. Plant dagnabbit… (Nice one, Bob!)
  5. J. Lee Grady: “We Christians don’t have a great track record when it comes to embracing change.” Ain’t that the truth? This he notes while saying that The charismatic movement as we know it has ended. What should I say about this that Kingdom Grace hasn’t already said?
  6. Steve Bell is blogging a trip through Egypt and Israel
  7. no risk = crap
  8. Can You Die From Lack of Sleep?
  9. The people at CT gave the women their own sandbox blog to play in: her•meneutics. Maybe it’s only me, but I remember a summer camp where the boys and the girls got separate swim times in the pool. Just sayin’.
  10. I can’t wait for this to arrive from Levenger.
  11. iMonk did a series on church discipline… I’m including a link to the first post rather than the whole series… which I still have to finish reading through. Good stuff though, important topic.
  12. Another great TED Talk: Sir Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity. “No, your child doesn’t have ADD…”
