Combing the Net – 6/17/2012

Why 29-Year-Old Divorcees Should Be Forbidden to Write About Marriage — A great response to a truly horrendous article on marriage that somehow managed to get published on The Huffington Post.

The Original “Desiring God” Sermon Series — Transcripts and audio files of a 1983 sermon series which formed the basis for one of the most influential books in my life and many others: John Piper’s Desiring God. I haven’t heard these yet, but look forward to listening soon!

Promotional Buttons From Presidential Campaigns — A look back at the winners and losers from 1940-2008. Some personal favorites:

  • “Keep the ass off the White House grass”
  • “Yo Quiero Ike”
  • “If I were 21 I’d vote for Kennedy”
  • “I’m voting REPUBLICAN but I’m NOT going to H—!!”
  • “Peace in Vietnam 1968”
  • “I’m a bunny for Carter”

  1. This comment was posted on the HuffPo article: “Oh, dear sweet girl. You change and change and change all through your life. I married at 26 and still didn’t really know who I was. Had my first child at 29 and had to “find” myself again. Had another at 29 and had to “find” myself again. Adopted at 30 and, guess what? had to find myself again. As my kids grow, they need me in such different ways then they did as babies, toddlers, and primary grade students. And I’m at this new place, needing to find–and define–myself again. LIFE brings changes. I’m 38 and I’m changing gears again–new job, new goals. It’s not about age. It’s about LIFE. You will change, the people you are committed to will change, the circumstances in which you live will change. Marriage isn’t about knowing completely who you are and then sticking to your guns through the ups and downs. Sometimes marriage is about being willing to ebb and flow together–and changing and growing and giving each other space to do so as needed.”

    I thought that was a pretty fair response. 🙂
