Well, Happy New Year from your Deeper Story family!
We hope that this is already proving a lovely time for you and yours. As we stretch our limbs post-holiday and the web begins to pulse again with new content, we’d like to share a handful of links here that caught our eye in the past week and were not from our own regular contributors. Here’s a collection of things our own writers found excellent, funny, pointed, or lovely.
Jamie the Very Worst Missionary with Jesus or Zoloft
But, I’ll say it again, Jesus is not all you need.
Dianna Anderson with A Monstrous God, and the series that is forthcoming
[trigger warning: rape apologism]
God does not ordain this pain. God does not will that people suffer. God does not hate women. And God does not punish women merely for existing.
Hilary Sherratt with He made you this promise
I take a deep breath, close my eyes, and suddenly, I hear His reminder: I make these promises to all my people. You, tonight, are my people. You, tonight, are the messenger for this promise. Won’t you tell these bright faces what I have promised them?
Kristen Howerton with Dear Pastor Mark: Pontificate This
I can see where bloggers may not be your favorite group of people right now. I know that your tweet wasn’t directed at me per se, but I suspect it was either directed at one of my friends, or a indictment of bloggers in general.
Antonia Terrazas with to the girl who wants a boy for Christmas.
Because it is hard being the excited friend all the time, feeling all sidelineish. You’re scared to admit that the fact that you are genuinely ridiculously overjoyed to get save-the-dates in the mail and to wedding-scheme with your friends and to walk before them down the aisle almost makes the way out a little more tricky.
