Sunday in Outer Blogness: I’m Back Edition!
Sorry to have been so scarce around the Internets of late! I just spent three weeks at German camp — and I thought (since it’s vacation and all) I’d have way more free time than usual, but it turned out to be quite the opposite. On the positive side, my family and I all speak much better German than we used to. On the negative side, after spending the whole day in the train yesterday, by the time I reviewed all my SiOB links, it was so late that I just went to bed (so I’d be fresh to go back to work this morning), which means that SiOB is late and lite this week. So, my apologies, and I hope everything will be back to normal by next weekend!
This past week there were some really fun post series! At White and Delightsome, there were some hot new Mormon stories — which apparently inspired President Paternoster to share one of his hottest disciplinary councils. Also, Invictus Pilgrim is sharing memories from his mission. (Others have shared fun memories of girls’ camp and drive-in movies.) And a brand new blog Dictionary of Correlation blog is filled with fun new entries! (See also control of information.)
Here are some additional highlights from this past week:
As fun as Sunday School normally is, I can’t wait to hear how this class goes! Check out this interesting new insight about the “boiled frog” metaphor, and another new insight about arousal vs. consent. My never-mo SiL visited Temple Square, and found the space Jesus “strikingly beautiful” — a review a little outside the norm for the Mormon arts. Jesus’ General presents some fascinating new research on facsimile #2! And despite recent horrors, Norway is pretty cool.
Even if moving on is hard, sometimes you can’t go back. And sometimes you don’t want to.
And I’m looking forward to a fun week to come!
