Yes, folks, The Friday Five is back! There is way too much good stuff on the Internet not to pass along. So here they are, my top five favorite links of the week:
1. Sarah Moon writes an eye-opening piece about how the privileged class controls knowledge. Seriously, read it now!
2. Karen Hammons shares a beautiful story about finding the church's beauty in the midst of ugliness:
I believe people are important. I believe people are who Jesus died for – not organizations. I believe self + family shouldn’t be sacrificed for the “cause” called “church”. I believe people should be fully loved. And not just the ones who meet the “requirements” but the ones who fail at any + all of the “requirements”.3. Over at A Deeper Story, Tamera Lunardo writes about wanting God to write love on cutters' arms.
4. Pam Hogeweide asks an important question: What if mega churches became extinct?
5. Dr. James F. McGrath weighs in on the recent papyrus discovery that suggests Jesus had a wife.
