Friday Fuel: Fifty Shades of Yoga Pants, Schools and Neighbors

February 13, 2015

It’s the end of another week.

On the one side, there was plenty to read about the topic of love, which is to be expected. And on the other side, many people, myself included, were talking about a particular movie (one that, apparently, is not even that great. I told you it would be boring.)

In My Blog Reader

I did not have time to read all of the comments that people are making about Fifty Shades, but I did read and appreciate Emily Wierenga’s comments. There are so many times when we as Christians think we need to absorb everything in order to be culturally relevant. Or we think that nothing can hurt us. But there are still boundaries and sometimes all the shades of grey are really black and white.

The debate over yoga pants, of all things, continues to rage on in some corners of the internet. And while this debate rolls on, Lore Ferguson takes aim at the issue and shows just how fruitless this whole discussion will probably end up becoming.

In the ongoing discussion of ISIS and Islamic extremism, it’s become apparent that some of us react by digging in our heels, puffing our chests, and declaring that we are without sin (we being Christians, Americans, or both.) Zack Hunt calls all of us to a place of humility even as we confront a very real threat.

Switching gears, I completely sympathized as a teacher with Abby Norman in All Schools Are Full of Humans. When did under-privileged education become a “pet project.”

And finally, in thinking about our own struggle and pain through infertility, I was really encouraged by Kristen Welch’s discussion of what we can do to love our neighbors in our pain.

Those are the writers that most encouraged, challenged and fueled me this week. See you next time!

  4. Hello blogger, i found this post on 11 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high bounce rate.

    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for high bounce
    rate is due to visitors hitting the back button.
    The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results your posts
    and pages will end up, so having reasonably low bounce rate is important
    for improving your rankings naturally. There is very handy wordpress plugin which can help you.
    Just search in google for:
