This week I have the honor of hosting the Christian Blog Carnival on The Navy Christian. I've been hoping for the opportunity for a long time now, so I was really happy to hear that I was being given the chance.
First, Ridge offers an interesting take on SHAME. Even if you don't agree with everything he writes, you'll come away with a renewed sense of what sin is in our lives.
Next, Aaron, over at the chiefest, gives an intriguing take on the prospect of super-computers taking over the world, or at least the prospects of them taking over humanity in terms of intelligence and power.
Read up on what Mason suggests in his article Labels End the Conversation, over at New Ways Forward. If you don't read it, you might just be proving his point!
Over at Free Money Finance there is a good article, with a great question, how how to give to the poor, and how much is enough. The greatest thing about that article is the wealth of responses. Really interesting.
Rhonda, blogging from Her Christian Home, suggests ways to wake up in the morning counting your blessings. It has helped me wake up and count mine!
