Quotes and Quibble

It's been fun cruisin' around the blogosphere this morning. Recently, I've not had an opportunity to really enjoy other blogs the way I'd like. Here's a couple of things that caught my eye.

Quotes:
Ray Van Neste over at Oversight of Souls has three quotes well worth the consideration. One on Goodwin, one from Spurgeon, one from a student, and a particularly convicting one for me from Calvin.

Reformissionary includes an interesting Tim Keller quote on small churches and decision-making. I'm still thinking about whether or not I agree, or to what extent, but it's a provocative statement.

If you haven't been reading Mark's series on Censorious Thouhts, you owe it to yourself and everyone you know! Too much good stuff to quote. Check out the posts!

"I wish that being a racist church leader was a sexual sin." (Anthony Bradley on the problem of "closeted" racism and silence)

Quibble:
Peggy Noonan has an op-ed on Barack Obama (HT: Denny Burk). Her punch-line is we don't really know what the Sen. believes so we should not get so excited; he could be another "knee jerk" selection for president. A slight quibble: I think we do know what the senator believes; we just don't like it. A fantasy ticket: How about the doomed presidential ticket of Barack Obama and Harold Ford, Jr? Whatever your politics, it would be the most photogenic presidential ticket in history... and two African-Americans to boot! A slightly more entertaining race would feature the feminine strength and intelligence of Condi Rice and Hillary Clinton. I'd have a bucket of popcorn for all the debates in either race!

Thanks for the link.

By the way, disagreeing with Tim Keller is always bad for you. So don't ever do it! ;)
