monday miscellany

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve linked to all the things. Here are a few clicks for this week:

~ Some encouraging news: millennial are out-reading older generations.

~ And more optimism: why you’ve been duped into believing the myth that the world is getting worse and worse. It’s worth reading all the way to the end.

~ My dear friend in Hawaii hit it out of the park with this post on narcissism.

~ A good commentary: I am a Christian but I don’t follow Christ:

…Christianity is not a choose-your-own-adventure story in which you get to define the terms of your relationship to God. God has defined the terms of our redemption, and they are irreducibly Christocentric. God made Christ who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf in order that we might become the righteousness of God in him (2 Cor. 5:21). Jesus taught us that we receive this salvation by repenting of our sin and trusting in Christ to save us (Mark 1:15). That conversion issues forth in a life devoted to God and His purposes. To miss these truths is to miss Christianity altogether.

~ I hate wire shelves, so I appreciated this: how to change up wire shelves for less than $10.

~ The reign of recycling. Yep, good intentions aren’t always enough.

That’s it for this rainy Monday. Have a good one!
