Saturday Good Reads

Tim Challies finds words from some 1,800 years ago that seem just as real today. Mick Silva finds ways to outsmart distraction when you’re writing. Every day matters to Scott Todnem. The world’s current version of the “Monuments Men” – saving priceless relics from barbarians. John Blase poetically sends a son off to school, while Maureen Doallas tells us about storytelling.

And at a school in Buckinghamshire in the U.K., they surely do know how to serve schoolchildren their lunches.
