Happy Ash Wednesday!
I have decided to refrain from coffee to follow the tradition of lenten reflection.
For a great resource on lent readings, check this out.
In light of my recent “lack of post,” I will bring you a short interlude to this week’s normal post on Thursday.
FYI, I was in my old stomping grounds of Grand Rapids last weekend – visiting and lecturing at my alma matre, Calvin College…who really, really needs a better website.
So, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has moved the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock forward to 11:55.
Let’s have a big round of applause for America for blazing the path toward the eventual return-by-necessity of Jesus Christ. Because, if there’s no world to come back to, how can He come back at all? And if you haven’t seen it yet, yes, you really do need to see An Inconvenient Truth.
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock conveys how close humanity is to catastrophic destruction–the figurative midnight–and monitors the means humankind could use to obliterate itself. First and foremost, these include nuclear weapons, but they also encompass climate-changing technologies and new developments in the life sciences and nanotechnology that could inflict irrevocable harm.
