CHICAGO, IL (February 17, 2012) – Many Covenanters routinely share links to social media articles and videos that Covenant News Service believes may be of interest to others. Following is a sample of those submissions – their inclusion does not represent an endorsement of any views expressed.
Josh Hamilton’s Christian Rehab – Is it really so hard to mention that Hamilton is a Christian, and also to note that we have our struggles? Perhaps it’s also a good reminder to us that a struggling Christian is just that – a struggling Christian. I pray for his ongoing healing.
Whenever Two or More Are Gathered . . . Online – For those who doubt or sneer, Cathleen Falsani shows meaningful community can be found online.
Alaska Airlines Stops Handing Out Prayer Cards – The airline is stopping a practice it initiated in the late 1970s. However, no doubt there are people on every airline flight who already are praying.
Are you Learning as Fast as the World is Changing? – Harvard Business Review columnist says this is the defining question for leaders.
Priest Resigns Over Liturgy Issue – Bishop had told him he had to stop improvising on traditional prayers.
Lies and 98 percent of Catholic Women – This is what happens when people don’t check their sources and why we should all be careful about quoting statistics that seem too skewed.
The Jeremy Lin Problem – New York Times columnist David Brooks writes a respectful column that religious values of humility and playing sports to win “are not reconcilable.” I don’t agree with him, but as always, he is thought-provoking.
What Would the End of Football Look Like – Would it be the end of the world? The writers present an economic perspective on what would happen, but the article also raises the moral question of whether it is okay to watch a sport – any sport – in which peoples’ lives can be destroyed. Might be a good read alongside “The Jeremy Lin Problem.”
