Steve Jobs died, and I was one of the three bloggers who didn’t write about it. But I did read about it, and I watched the “lost” 1984 video of Jobs introducing the Macintosh.
A lot of friends went to the writer’s retreat at Laity Lodge in Texas, and The High Calling is assembling a list of all the blog posts about it. Below, you can read Kelly Sauer’s “Airplane Poems” and look at Patricia Spreng’s photos.
I find myself agreeing with Matt Appling, a young pastor (young enough to be my son), about the purpose of the church. And I came across “Friday photo” by Nancy Rosback that still has me mesmerized.
