This post is a compilation of the most interesting blogs I have read lately. The blogs and links posted here are not necessarily synonymous with my personal beliefs or opinions and in some cases, actually challenge my perspective. But I have learned that anything that can broaden my perspective is beneficial for my own understanding. My hope with this post is that your understanding might be enriched and your perspective challenged. Some of these blogs I subscribe to, some are friends’ and some I have accidentally (or divinely) stumbled upon (some are articles assigned for school work). I have personally experienced a sense of encouragement to my faith as a Christian and as a human in reading these blogs, some more than others. Some of these blogs have left me laughing, some thinking, some believing, and some inspired. Whatever they may be to you, I hope you will consider the purpose and ideals behind the words to be valuable to your own life.

Get Over It Conservatives: Same-Sex Marriage Will Be Legal in All 50 States By Michael Abernethy… who I actually know nothing about. (Note: I obviously disagree with Abernethy’s opinion in this one, but his points are, nonetheless, valid. Understanding my opposer’s perspective is, in my personal opinion, a key in making your own argument effective)
17 Creative Collection of Inspirational Resources For Designers By An Jay, an atypical web designer
Counseling on Mission By Jonathan Dodson, lead pastor of Austin City Life church and directional leader for PlantR (an Austin-based church planting network); his blogs are seen at Creation Project and Church Planting Novice; (this particular blog series was posted on The Resurgence– a movement that blogs to resource multiple generations to live for Christ by being culturally accessible and biblically faithful)
