The Sunday Refill – 7 Links for Your Weekend (3/10/21)
1) Grace, Works and Raducanu – Fascinating reflection on Emma Raducanu’s US Open victory and whether our hearts value hard work or whether they actually pine for grace.
2) Bending the COVID Bow of Bronze – One pastor’s struggle toward hope in God – I appreciated Benjamin Vrbicek‘s extended musings and honesty here.
3) Sarah Eberle’s Psalm 23 Garden wins gold at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show – So many people know Psalm 23. How might we move people to long for the relationship it offers? Bible Society designed a garden!
4) The gospel according to Calvin (Klein) – I enjoy following this blog on preaching and culture, and this post is a really interesting take on following Calvin Klein’s naming choice of products through the generations – and how that might reveal heaps about our changing culture.
5) On Owen Strachan, William Lane Craig, and the Historical Adam – Some interesting conversations about how we read Genesis 1-3 on social media over the last couple of weeks, prompted by a new book by Christian philosopher William Laine Craig – but aside from the specifics of the debate I really valued the way Gavin Ortlund models a gracious and fair way to engage in the discussion and those he disagrees with. Be more Gavin, y’all!
6) One Day (Far Side of Our Sorrow) – Appreciated this beautiful new song from Folk Hymnal. Maybe you or someone you know would value hearing this today?
7) The Winners of the 2021 Drone Photo Awards – For something a bit different, these views are ones we don’t often get to see. Fabulous.
