Welcome to Reagan’s Roundup, where every Friday I share links to things from around the web that I think you will find interesting or helpful in your journey to become a better steward of the life God has given you.
- This week on the podcast I talked about the value of spending time in creation: Listen to Episode 26 – Take a Hike
- This week on the blog: Sermonary Review: Organize Your Preaching
Now, here are some other links from around the web:
“This might sound ridiculous, but you can actually glorify God in how you let someone go. If, because of the great compassion you’ve experienced in Christ, you handle yourself with kindness, humility, and love, even the person you’re firing will see Christ in you. They may hate you afterward, but you cannot control that—you can only control how you honor the Lord by honoring the person you’re firing.”
This is the closest you’ll get to time traveling to 1895. Check out this restored version of a classic piece of cinema history. Tell me you’re thoughts, but watching this gave me a very strange feeling.
“How good God has been to women to choose us to join Jesus in lowly, life-giving work among his littlest lambs! For mothers of young children as well as all Christian women, when we are willing to be spent in inefficiency for the most tender, impressionable, and helpless among us, we are choosing the good portion that will not be taken away from us.”
“At the moment, most people in China are still on vacation for the Lunar New Year. But as Chinese companies begin to restart operations, it’s likely to usher in the world’s largest work-from-home experiment.”
“99 second hand smartphones are transported in a handcart to generate virtual traffic jam in Google Maps. Through this activity, it is possible to turn a green street red which has an impact in the physical world by navigating cars on another route to avoid being stuck in traffic.”
That’s a BIG number. I find this fascinating because it gives a metric to just how much of an outsized influence new media like YouTube are having.
