For anyone that already feels bad about giving up on their New Year’s resolution, get ready to be punch in the junk…
With the coming of a new year there is a lot of talk concerning resolutions. This always makes me think of one of my favorites from church history, Jonathan Edwards, and the resolutions he wrote as a young man concerning his life in God.
Many new year’s resolutions fizzle out quickly–and are often related to superfluous things.
If you need some resolution for the new year, try some of these on for size. Attempting to walk these out by the grace of God will have far reaching affect in your life (read I Timothy 4:6-9).
Also, if you are in need of some good reading this new year, I recommend George Marsden’s biography of Jonathan Edwards. Or, if you are up to reading Edwards himself, I suggest starting with Religious Affections or Freedom of the Will.

Did the Internet community peak at bookmarks? Asked in a different and perhaps more complete way: just as technologies like RSS and email in their purest forms are hard to beat even as technology marches forward, what better technology exists to keep track of information on the ever-expanding Internet than bookmarks? Taken a step further, what better way to share the bookmarked information than a site of your own? As such, I‘ve been reading, which is why I write now.
Working in and having a passion for libraries, I am struck by the fact that the way bookmarks work in the physical world is not directly analogous to bookmarks in the digital world. Bookmarks in the digital world are instead like dog-eared pages or highlighted passages; if you think of the Internet as a single tome, that is. In any case, anything that moves you to deface a book should probably be shared or become immortalized in some other way than just a reference for a future version of yourself.
