A Smorgasbord of Links From Around the Web
I just read a very interesting article regarding graduates. While I don’t necessarily agree with the author’s opinion that today’s college graduates are “most supervised generation in American history,” but I do agree with his assessment that we are doing young people a disservice by telling them to pursue limitless possibilities of the world just as they are entering adulthood, a time of “finding serious things to tie yourself down to.” My favorite quote: “Most people don’t form a self and then lead a life. They are called by a problem, and the self is constructed gradually by their calling.” Read “It’s Not About You” and tell me: do you agree or disagree?
Another blog post that’s gotten crazy attention this week: “Your kid’s an All Star? Wow! Someday he’ll be average like the rest of us.” I think the title pretty much says it all, but it’s basically about how Christian parents should balance priorities.
