I was going to start a new format today, but I'd rather wait until after I receive some news this upcoming Tuesday as the nature of the news will significantly impact the future of this blog.
Anyway, here's a new list. :D
1) Rhett & Link: These guys are originally from North Carolina. I'd like to say I know these guys, but in actual fact I've only met Link once and Rhett twice. Anyway, they're really funny and quite talented in the ways of humor and media production - check 'em out. They have a TV show on IFC about making local TV commercials: http://www.ifc.com/rhett-link/
2) The X-Structure: A band - nice, mellow music. Just found 'em the other day amidst the comments of a post on Stuff Christians Like. They're from Cape Town, South Africa. Really, up until this point, all I've known about South Africa is: apartheid; it's Charlize Theron's birthplace; and what I learned from District 9. Of course, if you think about it, it's really just like any other place that's known for something. Ohio has buckeyes; Hawaii has coconuts, France has bread - other than that places are just full of workers, dreamers, families and the like.
3) Ed Stetzer: I don't know much about the man except that he shows up on the blogrolls of several other blogs I frequent. I particularly like what he has to say here: Aug. 17 post. The love of Jesus is hard enough to practice with one's own self, but with others? With a group of people so marginalized? Remember, the enemies aren't the people we see, but the forces we can not.
