Web Wanderings

A few worthwhile things I've stumbled upon while wandering the internet....

  • Dystopian young adult novels are all the rage now, but my first and favorite love will always be,  'The Giver'. I'm so excited that they have finally adapted the book for film, the first trailer can be seen, here.  If you haven't read the book yet - do it! It's a perfect quick weekend read. 
  • More book fun, 22 strong female characters in literature. A great reference if you are looking for a book to recommend to a young girl. 
  • Someday I'm going to to sit down and write about why Evangelicals' war on homosexuality angers/sickens me so much. It's complex and honestly I don't have it all figured out...maybe that what angers me, that some Christians' claim that they do - that they strip people of there complexity and put them in a box and a "sinful box" at that. I know that some Christians think they've won a war by convincing World Vision to change their mind, but at what cost?. I mean if Evangelical's were really looking for a war to fight and win you'd think they'd start with one haunting there own backyards or pews? Where's the war on pornography; that a startling number of Evangelical men claim to struggle with? Or where's the war on divorce? And I'm not talking about divorce caused by adultery or a Christian being left by a nonbeliever but those caused by other reasons. Isn't it hypocrisy to accept those Christians (often remarried and thus embracing their "sin") and not to accept same-sex marriages. But I guess it's just easier to be like a Pharisee and thank God that we are not tax collectors (Luke 18:9-14).  Sorry, that was a bit more of a tangent than I expected, as I said it angers/sickens me.
  • I find it intriguing that crop tops have once again become a trend. Honestly though, I don't think I'll every go back there again - there are just some thinks a woman, over thirty, with three kids shouldn't do. This tank from Anthropologie though offers a fun alternative.
