A Saturday-sweep

I have been feeling a bit off colour so took to my bed for rest and Lemsip.

Over the past few months, I have been working my way through Prime Suspect which must be amongst the best television dramas ever made. Do check it out if you, like me, missed it the first time around.

I listened to an excellent In our time discussion on Calvinism this week. Worth checking out.

I am halfway through Linchpin.

Leading is a skill, not a gift. You're not born with it, you learn how. And schools can teach leadership as easily as they figured out how to teach compliance. Schools can teach us to be socially smart, to be open to connection, to understand the elements that build a tribe. While schools provide outlets for natural-born leaders, they don't teach it. And leadership is now worth far more than compliance is [P. 48]

Remember Rage against the machine got to Christmas No1. Why not try to get Delirious to the same spot for Easter No 1 with this song. Tell everyone and do the Facebook thing.

Redhill has some thoughts about Jesus and the Eyewitnesses.

A short R C Sproul thought on prayer.

For one week of blogging 2 Fair Dollars a Day is going great guns.

And Kester has a barmy clip that may offer a Saturday smile.
