Ideas, Young Life

(30 days) of Ideas – Week 3

Oh, just another week of thinking differently…

(day 15) – Romans 1:19-20 says, “But the basic reality of God is plain enough.  Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being.” (from The Message)

(day 16) Glosoli by Sigur Ros, my favorite music video, ever.  Watch it twice.

(day 17) – “BIG thoughts and SMALL actions make a difference.”  (This may be a life motto of mine.)  You can download Seth Godin’s free ebook (What Matters Now) here.  It is packed-full of wisdom and insight for life, no matter what you do or who you are.

(day 18) – A few quotes from Richard Rohr, a Franciscan friar:

“You do not need to believe a theory to know God’s love.”

“God is offering us a banquet.  Not a trophy or a prize for later, but a participative and joyous party now.”

(day 19) – My whole family now owns Mac computers.  This company is clearly doing something right.  The Apple Approach to thinking differently.

(day 20)“Garbage” Art – these artists have created art by seeing what most people see as trash a little bit differently…and the result is pretty mind-boggling!

(day 21) – A really intense, eye-opening article (so powerful that it made me cry…which is difficult to do) in Christianity Today about Mark 5 and obstetric fistula.
