After taking a break last week when I wasn't doing so well, This Week In Cool Stuff is back! And it's a good thing, because there were a lot of great blog posts and article this week.
-Brian G. Murphy writes a beautiful blog post about sharing a special moment near the Potomac River with his partner.
-Julie Clawson released her new ebook "The Hunger Games and The Gospel", which explores how the book series' themes of justice coincide with the message of Jesus. Usually I balk at any book trying to find any hidden "Christian message" in popular culture, but Clawson is a brilliant mind so I'm definitely going to have to check this one out.
-I was going to write a post about John Piper saying God caused last week's devastating tornadoes (and, yes, I was going to call it "Can You Believe What John Piper Just Said?"). But Bo Sanders at Homebrewed Christianity beat me to it. And his is actually better than what I was going to write.
-Alise Wright writes about her history with the term "slut" beautifully.
-Rachel Held Evans examines the controversy surrounding Invisible Children.
-Sarah at Emerging Mummy writes a beautiful letter to her eldest daughter.
-Addie Zierman of How To Talk Evangelical writes a beautiful post about communion.
-And finally the boys of Odd Future are at it again with their new video "NY (Ned Flander)." It's not as NSFW as "Rella," but it's still pretty weird. Especially after seeing Tyler, the Creator as a baby!
