what I am reading today

- Pilgrim's Inn by Elizabeth Goudge

This is a reread for my Summer Book Club which
is just getting in before it is a Fall Book Club read. 
We meet at the end of the month. I want Goudge's 
eyes in how she sees people, beauty, and her pen 
describes so you want to live where they live and
know them. 

- 10 online audios of Wendell Berry

- download Tabletalk for free. Reading George 
Grant on Persecution. 
This issue of Tabletalk considers persecution. Jesus warned us, “If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.” Christians have endured suffering throughout history. Yet Jesus told us to “take heart” for He has “overcome the world.

- good article for defense of the humanities : 

The Suicide of the Liberal Arts :Indoctrinating students isn’t the same as teaching them. Homer and Shakespeare have much to tell us about how to think and how to live.
