Saturday Good Reads

Last fall, the University of Missouri had a series of protests over racial incidents. By the time it was over, the president and chancellor had resigned, a communications professor had become the poster child nationwide for stifling freedom of the press (she was ultimately charged with assault and unintentionally derailed the protest movement), and the university found itself at the receiving end of the ire of alumni and taxpayers. The fallout continues, as a Mizzou law professor writes.

Photographer Dave Sandford discovered the beauty of the waves of Lake Erie – in the wintertime. The resulting photographs are awe-inspiring.

And good poetry, scary movies, faith as a foreign country, and good insights for writers.

Finally, Praise & Harmony is the ministry of Keith and Sharon Lancaster and Acapella Ministries, with the purpose “to equip congregations for excellence in worship by training leaders and inviting all of God’s people to sing.” Listen to “To the King” for an idea of what they do.
