What a week. I’m featuring 17 posts with the sincere promise that I will be more discerning next week. But as I reviewed my “Well Said . . .” file I realized this was a special week.
The blogosphere exploded with stories and comments about the Virginia Tech shootings. We’re still seeing and feeling the magnitude of this event. I am so pleased that the God-centered bloggers were prepared to give an answer for their hope. I tracked 31 posts dealing with VT. You can browse them with my google reader if you like. Here are the highlights:
