Saturday Good Reads


A seminarian writes on why younger men need older men. An answer to the question of “following your passion.” Insight on what is really wrong with the church. Do you have an inner artist, and does it matter? A woman tells the story of cancer. We’re beginning to figure out the cost of relativism, and Rod Dreher (aka Crunchy Con) thinks Ferguson may be lost.

Interesting, important things. Vital things.
