Rain, Talking to Babies, Salatin and More

Its Gonna Rain Today

We need rain. Pastures are short and we are going to have to start feeding hay soon if the grass doesn't grow back. In addition to praying for rain, we did the one thing that always brings showers. Yep, we mowed hay! It would be ready this afternoon, so this morning the weather man informed me that we should get a couple hours of "light rain".

Do Baptists Talk to Their Babies?

Peter J. Leithart asks this question in an article of the same name. Click Here, its the 2nd article. This is not meant to anger all my Baptist friends, just get you thinking.

New Salatin Article and Other Reading

The cover story on Acres USA magazine this month is Preventing Pathogens. As always, Joel presents some good ideas here, based on a multi-species management system. Anyone interested in Acres USA can get a free issue Here. Its worth getting just read Mr. Walters commentary on news and economics! I also enjoy reading Farming Magazine. Their focus is "People, Land and Community." Chad Degenhart asks Biblical Agriculture - Is It Possible In Today’s World? He brings up some good questions.

EXCELLENT article by Leithart, Scott. Thanks for sharing that. I cannot recommend his book "Against Christianity" strongly enough - it absolutely makes you stop and think - again and again - about how the majority of christians in this country are trying to just make their christianity "one more thing" - it examines culture and where we fit. Awesome book.
Praise God for your hay and for the rain you need! Our house is sitting in a lake right now, cause it's rained hard for two days and we're expecting more tonight! I hope God sends some of it your way!
