List o’ Links
I’ve decided to revive an ancient tradition here at the blog – a weekly collection of interesting and relevant links from around the interwebs. I shouldn’t need to say it, but I probably do, so…linking someone in this post does not mean I agree with his or her body of work as a whole. Here then, divided into some random categories, is this weeks offering.
A War Like No Other by Victor Davis Hanson – a deep dive into the Peloponnesian War.
The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan – the second book in Jordan’s epic “Wheel of Time” series.

Pastor, are you preparing your church for when you are no longer there? I wrote a little about this here, and Mike Hess has given some helpful pointers here.
I think it may be time to renovate the house.
What do you do when you have too much time on your hands? Why, you reproduce Middle Earth – all of it– in Minecraft.
On The Light Side
Sin nature explained in one meme.
This will brighten your day.
