Have you been biking around city streets this summer? If so, watch out! I hope what happened to our friend in this week's best video (see next post) doesn't happen to you. Of course, if you do get hit I hope it does happen to you! Take a look and you'll see what I mean.
Good reads of the week:
With war raging in the Middle East it's easy to forget about other world tragedies, like the ones that rage on in Africa. Alan Cowell remembers that continent in this article. Meanwhile, Craig Smith addresses the advance of Islam by looking at the life of a Catholic bishop in increasingly Muslim Algeria. Switching continents again Jim Yardely will surprise you with what he finds in China's Qinghai province. Finally, this article by Jane Perlez reminds us that our very best is needed, especially when doing charity work!
This week's best blogs were this one and this one (How Many of Us Are There?). The first gives hope that Christians can actually discuss matters passionately and still love one another in the process. The second takes an inside look at Scot McKnight, the best blogger on-line (in my view), and how he produces superb, consistent, rich-in-content blogs three times a day!
Finally, the quote of the week comes from the lips of Richard Li, a Hong Kong tycoon: "I don't think I've been doing a particularly good job." At least he admits it!
