Two news items I heard on NPR's Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me:
In the busy society we live in apparently everyone is trying to optomize their schedules. Two bank robbers decide to call ahead to speed up the process only to be surprised when the cops are there waiting for them. See the full story here.
Another set of less-then-intelligent thieves decide to reveal their exploits on Dr. Phil. See full story here.
I appreciated this post on the importance of pastors. Some of the impression that Miller is anti-church, but as you can see from this list he's obviously not. I thought it was a very helpful reminder to be thankful for our pastors.
If you haven't heard, John Piper is taking an 8 month sabbatical. Here's his announcement on why he feels this is necessary. And here is Mark Driscoll and his wife Grace's response to it.
And lastly apparently Don Miller has the inside scoop on things. The View will be having a variety of Christian male leaders fill Hasselbacks role as she will be missing a month of time. Singer/Songwriter Derek Webb will be heading up the group. Should be interesting.
