For the longest time, I’ve been meddling with a good phrase to capture some of the blog posts, articles, or random stuff I enjoyed reading this past week I think I finally found one that I’ll keep using: Stuff Eugene Liked This Week.
Why? Because it’s so darn original. I’m really skilled at reading and exegeting Culture and I speculate that there will soon be hundeds of copycats that will use the phrase, “Stuff _______ Like.” Remember, you read it here first.
Without further adieu, here’s “Stuff Eugene Liked This Week”:
- This dude [Darwin] read this post [and video] on my blog and decided to leave his job at Microsoft. Is he stupid? No, but conviction is a beautiful and scary thing.
- Bill Hybels and Willow Creek Responds to Critics – I don’t know about you but I am appreciating Hybels and Willow Creek more and more.
- Tim Keller writes “The Gospel in All its Form” – Keller pastors Redeemer in NYC and one of most influential leaders. A great read.
- Another person joins the Blogging Community at Quest – Teresa speaks from the heart and walks the walk. Subscribe to her blog especially if you want to keep updated on the situation in Burma.
- A Letter From the Depths of the Soul [Jesus Creed] – “Over 10 years ago I had cancer. The treatments I went through were very difficult, but effective as I am cancer free to this day. Not too long ago they found that I have scarring in my lungs…”
- Brian McLaren responds to his critics – Whether you like or dislike him, you have to appreciate his willingness to listen and his posture of humility.
- Racialicious gives some commentary to a Korean-American female comedian, Esther Ku, who recently appeared on Last Comic Standing. I love seeing Asian-Americans break into larger mainstream pop culture but the self deprecation of Asian stereotypes and identities are getting very old. It’s not funny.
- We enjoyed hosting a gathering at our home last weekend for first time and expectant parents. Lots of poopie diapers. We must have had at least a dozen babies join us the past six months and there are about 10 expectant parents including two on our church staff. Here’s one of our new babies. I’m biased here but I love naturally curly black hair.
