Saturday Good Reads

Tim Henderson, director of Campus Crusade for Christ at Penn State, has some good thoughts about the scandal that engulfed the school, the athletic program and football legend Joe Paterno. Billy Coffey wants to help change the world of a little boy who’s very sick. Pete Marshall writes a poem about a broken home. Jennifer Dukes-Lee takes a photograph that says everything about her husband’s mission trip. All this and a whole lot more was online this week.

Thanks, Glynn!

I really like that painting by David Wagner.

And thanks for supporting me with my new venture on Poterion. It is designed for international graduate students who are curious about Jesus and the life he offers us.

Have a wonderful thanksgiving!
