This week’s interesting links and articles:

A Story of Redemption: My Secret Love for Garbage (Tara Woodard-Lehman, HuffingtonPost.com): “When visitors ask of the mosaic ‘What is that all about?’ I begin to share The Old Story. The Story that tells of a God who isn’t afraid to get dirty and grubby; a God who longs to enter into our cracks and mess and heal us and all of creation.”

The Spirituality of Tattoos (Jacob Myers, HuffingtonPost.com): “Tattoos often signify one’s relationships, one’s movement beyond her daily existence to another plane of reality, and a new awareness of a person’s being-in-the-world. Tattooing presents the bearer with experiences that are rarely matched in the Western world.”

A Dying Church (Mark Yaconelli, ImmerseJournal.com): “If this church would only stop its anxious obsession with what’s missing and instead give thanks to God for what it has, its children might find a way to live with grace and passion, even amidst a culture that brands all of us as lacking”

Why Do Christians Need to Make It All Better? (Stephanie Smith, RelevantMagazine.com): “But what would happen if we let the pain sit for a while? What would we learn if we paused to listen to the pain instead of working to fix it?”

Is Food the New Sex? (Mary Eberstadt, Hoover.org): “Unable or unwilling to impose rules on sex at a time when it is easier to pursue it than ever before, modern man (and woman) has taken longstanding morality about sex and substituted it onto food. The all-you-can-eat buffet is now stigmatized; the sexual smorgasbord is not.”

And in case you missed it:

A Conversation on the Meaning of Life (Sheridan Voysey.com): “In this podcast, UCB UK’s Paul Hammond asks me for some answers to life’s meaning.”

What do you Worship? (Sheridan Voysey, OurDailyJourney.org): “Whether it’s a supernatural being . . . science, money, wisdom, information, ritual, power or love,” says social commentator Hugh Mackay, “most of us assign the status of god to something in our lives.”
