I know its a day late, but this week's reading turned up articles on "Talking" Refrigerators, articles on Faith and Sabbath, the Pope's problem of finding a place to pray in the Holy Land and a video that breaks your heart.
It's all part of this week's "Friday Five."
If someone only knew you through your refrigerator, would would they know? This article from Scientific American raises some good questions AND has some great pictures of what people put on their refrigerators. What is your refrigerator saying about you and your family- even before someone looks inside?
Faith is a Verb
A theologian talks about the limits of theology- if it isn't lived. An article that asks, "What does your life say about what you really believe?"

You Can't Pray There!
The Pope would like to pray at the traditional site of the Last Supper while he is in the Holy Land. Trouble is, it is also over the traditional site of where David is buried. I used to feel that Monty Python's "Life of Brian" was outrageous and over-the-top humor. Articles like this make me think they were too tame.
A powerful video that underscores the heroic work of Foster Parents. Bring your kleenex.
