The week's retweets
Here's some of the stuff I've looked at and shared via Twitter recently:
- Terence Blacker wondered if cars make us nastier. Perhaps the only place we are ruder to others than behind the wheel is in front of the computer screen, as Tim Adams noted.
- I thought this year's 'Everything Conference' was an excellent provocation to the church to do much more in and for the world we're in, so I'm excited that it's happening again next year: 17th March.
- The phone-hacking scandal's big day in front of the Commons Select Committee was a good time to bury other controversial news, and that's what the Health Department seemed to do. Max Pemberton was particularly scathing.
- Certain pubs in Scotland have strict entry policies.
- In other Scottish news, the re-opening of the Nation Museum was heralded by The Edinburgh Reporter and Jonathan Glancey, Telegraph readers shared their favourite beaches up here and advised visitors to take up smoking, and David Mach's new exhibition looks interesting.
- My best source for new music went hyperbolic about SBTRKT.
- John Piper listed eight incredible reasons Jesus gives for Christians not to be anxious in Matthew 6:
- Life is more than food and the body more than clothing (verse 25)
- God feeds the birds and you are more valuable than they are (26)
- It's pointless. It adds not one hour to your life. (27)
- If God clothes ephemeral grass, he will clothe eternal you (28-30)
- Unbelievers are anxious about stuff. And you are not an unbeliever (32a)
- Your father (!) knows that you need all these things you're anxious about. (32b)
- When you seek first God's kingdom and righteousness, what you need is added to you. (33)
- Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Tomorrow's trouble stays there (34)
