This week at TJP, a few of our team picked up where others left off: Brendan Busse does penance at spin class, wondering where Michael Rossmann found 11 lessons, and Matthew Dunch, writing about nothing, took up Tim O’Brien’s challenge to make it about something (or in this case, Someone). Here’s the rest of the week broken down, in case you need to refer to it when someone riffs on it next week:
- Chris Schroeder makes his TJP debut, asking us to resist “cheap grace” in thinking about the Trayvon Martin case
- (Actually, this is a bit of a second take too: Matt Spotts first wrote about the Martin case in TJP at the beginning of April.)
- Trying to imagine the Resurrection, Matt Spotts starts at ordinary human love
- Paddy Gilger put down his phone long enough to wonder why we always seem to pick up our nearest device when we’re alone
- Caught yawning at early morning Mass, Joe Simmons wants you to know that even the yawn can be a kind of prayer
- Eric Sundrup wades through some Catholic flamewars, and is more than grateful for TJP’s quality commenters
Since there’s more than enough nonsense on the internet, why not take minute to add some sanity to the mix? Pick a favorite TJP article and post a comment to let us and others know what you found valuable about — and let us know what you’d like to see more of next time, when we’ll recap it at Week in Review.
