So during one of those restless nights last week in which I wish I had been praying (see last week’s post, My Kids Keep Teaching Me How to Pray) but was actually reading stuff on my phone, I came across a number of articles you might like:
On love and grace and pain from poet Christian Wiman: Mortify Our Wolves
On why junk food is so addictive: The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food
On the impact of too-long prison terms, and, as it happens, a hauntingly beautiful look at a man and a woman who love each other: Prison and the Poverty Trap
On Why Gender Equality Stalled, which describes social progress that has not been aided by political progress and the implications this disconnect has for all of us.
