Bits & Pieces (9/5/12)

  • God’s Protection in Culture Shaping Vocations – “I’ve always wondered why we could be so quick to sacrifice our children to become missionaries but stand in the way of their becoming broadcast journalists, film and television actors, photographers, and painters.

  • D.A. Caron on Angry Christians and the Devil’s Tactics – “When you’re busy hating everybody, and denouncing everybody, and seeking political solutions to everything, it’s very difficult to evangelize. Isn’t it? Very hard to be compassionate, to look on the crowds as though they’re sheep without a shepherd, very hard to look on them like that when they’re taking away “my heritage.” Do you see?”  (H/T)
