this week's christian carnival in random order.
What Constitutes a "Real University?" is given to us by Chris over at American Church History.
I watched Bill Maher a few times many years ago, so I did not actually watch the show under discussion. Maher, an evangelical atheist, complained about Mitt Romney giving a talk at Liberty University because "a) he's a liar and b) Liberty University isn't really a university." Maher is at some level a comedian, but on another level his speech is often hate-filled toward those he disagrees with. He complains about people of faith who want to spread their ideas and beliefs, yet he does not shy away from sharing his ideas and beliefs.
The Olympic Flame presented by Ridge of Ridge's Blog.
When I looked at how strategic and important these people believe the Olympic flame is, how carefully they treat it, I began to think how flippant I am about the Holy Spirit."
The Slipping Value of Life shows up via Russ homed at Thinking in Christ.
If an alien dropped into one of the super zips today, what would he think about the value we place on life?
Blood and Death comes to us by way of Greg at InFaith's Mission Blog.
While we were studying the life of King David in the Old Testament at Bible club, one girl said to me, “Why are there so many killings and so much blood in these stories?”
Indeed, nearly every story had someone dying a violent death: Goliath and other Philistines, Saul and his sons, Eli’s sons, Amalekites and their king, Uriah the Hittite, Uzzah who touched the Ark of the Covenant, and others that we did not even mention in the stories. I replied, “These are not myths or fairy tales. They are real history. We are telling you truth here, not make believe.”
Prayers for Meetings is presented by Michael at Prayers for Special Help.
Here is a collection of prayers for meetings that I've put together. It is good to have a few prayers prepared if you're hosting a prayer group, bible study, or church get together.
Then sings my soul is brought to us by Charis at Charis: Subject to Change.
It's a simple message really; Love the Lord, love your neighbour.
Safe Church given by Diane at Crossroads.
Maybe we should look at the old legalism, but do it with a new spirit to make church safer.

"While I was reading Robinson I did find some of my efforts to enjoy the sun being thwarted by clouds."
My wife and I have started to get more serious about teaching our children principles of stewardship by providing opportunities for them to earn money and use give, save spend banks.
THE ALCHEMIST: REAL OR FOOL’S GOLD? submitted by Paul over at Paul Kuritz: Opinions.
