“What does it mean when a political leader says that the nation’s “thoughts and prayers” are with those who are in sorrow and grief?” Dr Mohler explains.

Bullet Trains and Birds (Video)

“Japan’s famous bullet trains had a problem: they were extremely loud.” I love their solution: they looked to what they would deny is evidence of design in nature to design a solution. The whole video is fascinating that way.

Rosaria Butterfield addresses an increasingly common scenario. “When you married your high school sweetheart at 19, you never once suspected you would be in this place. Now, at 39, after twenty years of marriage, you call yourself gay.”

The Words Used by Men and Women to Write About Love

“Have you noticed that people are no longer talking? Sure, there is plenty of chat in shops and restaurants, but how often do you phone someone? If you’re over 40 you probably haven’t changed your habits, but I suspect that if you are under 40 there has been a change.”

The Church Cratered

This was rather predictable: “the Nashville “Megachurch” that embraced gay marriage two years ago has cratered.”
