My friend and The High Calling colleague David Rupert went to Jordan for 10 days, and sent back a steady stream of photos and blog posts, including an interesting story about tour guides. Seth Haines explored writing as a spiritual discipline. Mark Movsevian at First Things explored how Thomas More is portrayed in the PBS series Wolf Hall. And my wife found on the internet some of the oldest video footage of London, displayed in a “then and now” format.
And more good stuff, too.
