Good Reads from around the Web
Ordinary: The New Radical- Everything has to have an exclamation point to catch our attention these days. For many of us, the worst word in our vocabulary is “ordinary.” Who wants a bumper sticker that announces to the neighborhood, “My child is an ordinary student at Bubbling Brook Elementary”? Who wants to be an ordinary person in an ordinary town, a member of an ordinary church with ordinary friends and callings? Our life has to count.

A Note to Those Who Criticize-"I have a strange relationship with you. I dread you and I need you. There will be times when I am right and you are wrong. But there will be many times when you are right and I am wrong." Pastor Thom Rainer has some great points for all of us to consider...especially for those of us who like him are thin-skinned introverts at heart.
And this one is just pure fun...
