So many good posts out there – it was tough to narrow it down this week. But here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

  • If you know a Christian teen who is graduating high school this year, please, for the love of everything, make sure they read this post by Addie Zierman. I would love it if 17 year old Alise could read this. But regardless, I found healing for 38 year old Alise.
  • Zack Hunt wrote an amazing piece challenging the view of the inerrancy of the Bible. Don’t miss it.
  • Aaron Smith at Cultural Savage wrote a powerful piece reminding us that when it comes to our mental health, sometimes Jesus isn’t enough. I love what he had to say here and I 100% support this message.
  • Tomorrow is the last day of school for my kids. This post by Jen Hatmaker pretty much sums up the past few months.
  • I’ve had the chance to talk to Amy Martin a little bit at the Sacred Friendship Gathering the past couple of years, and her post over at Zach Hoag’s blog about attraction and shame was straight up brilliant.
  • I loved this short poem by Sarah Askins about choosing not to stand still. It’s just beautiful.
  • And finally, to all of you graduates, have a cake.

Stuff I’ve Been Reading

 

Hello friends! I’ve got some fantastic links for you here. Be sure to stop by and let the authors know what you think.

  • In the wake of the Aurora shootings, Shane Claiborne wrote a really powerful piece about the myth of redemptive violence. This was important for me to read.
  • Also following the shootings, Billy Coffey wrote a beautiful post about James Holmes. The questions that his daughter asked were poignant and his responses in this post are lovely.
  • So many gorgeous posts in the “what’s saving me today” synchroblog that Sarah Bessey hosted, but I particularly loved Jen Luitwieler’s contribution about compassion.
  • The World Vision bloggers were announced this week. I was so happy to see my friends Shawn and Joy among the list. Be sure to follow along with all of their stories when they head to Sri Lanka next month.
  • This is a repost from Gennon at Momastery, but it was the first time that I’d read it. I love (!!!) how she describes her faith.
  • Did you like the facebook page for The Wednesday Nooner? You should do that. Just a few days until the official release!
  • And speaking of romance, be sure to check out these awesome cakes over at Cake Wrecks.
