Wednesday Links

Here are a few links to some things you might have missed, or at least ones that caught my attention this past week:

1. 30 for 30: How Rocky Ended Communism

It’s a joke, of course, but it’s a pretty good spoof of the ESPN “30 for 30” series which recounts the historically significant events of Rocky 4.

2. The True Story of “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”

It’s a great Christmas carol, but like so many incredible songs of the faith, was born from tragedy.

3. Christmas Means God IS Fixing This

Following the shootings in San Bernardino, The New York Daily News ran the headline, “God is not fixing this.” Denny Burk responds well in this article.

4. How Twitter Helped Fred Phelps’ Granddaughter Walk Away From Westboro

The granddaughter of the founder of the hateful Westboro Baptist Church is no longer a part of it, and as Trevin Wax explains, social media was one of the reasons why.

5. When God Was Silent

There were 400 years between the close of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New, but God was not inactive during that period.
