Weekly Highlights (3.15.2013)

Here are a few blogs/news stories that caught my attention this week:

  • David D. Flowers offers a reflection on the life and death of Joshua Casteel, a veteran whose conviction in the nonviolent Way of Jesus led to his filing for conscientious objector status and an honorable discharge from the military. Casteel ultimately developed cancer from his long-term exposure to toxic fumes at Abu Ghraib.
  • Lerone A. Martin (Eden Theological Seminary, St. Louis) discusses the intersection of social media and prayer over at Union Theological Seminary's New Media Project blog. Are we going too far and making too many concessions when it comes to the use of technology as an aid for worship?
