Articles of the Week - November 24

Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving. I kept a handful of articles on that very subject, so I will begin there this week:

  • Collin Hansen of The Gospel Coalition responds to some common myths of Thanksgiving.
  • "Jordan" of gaysubtlety provides his very moving list of things for which he is thankful.
  • The Heritage Foundation offers the text of Abraham Lincoln's 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation, Rachel Sheffield's reflections on why we should be thankful for families (I especially appreciate and agree with the points on the value of a stable, two-married-parent-household for child development), and Rich Tucker's reflections on the American distinctives that are still strong even in an age of partisanship.
  • Leonard Pitts, Jr., writing for the Chicago Tribune, uses Lincoln's circumstances to draw a parallel and a challenge for our own times.

Turning to faith and theology:

A couple items on education:

And finally, arts and entertainment.

By the way, next Saturday, I will begin my second annual Christmas Music Advent Calendar!
