Christians need good fiction. This mailman/fireman is not fiction and he says he’s not a hero. Jesus keeps getting taller and taller. Starpath will really make your pathway glow. How bad was the original, discarded Star Wars trailer? This bad.
ERLC: Here is an interesting roundtable discussion on the importance of fiction for shaping our minds with Trevin Wax and Jared Wilson, both bloggers and theologians who recently published novels, along with Karen Swallow Prior, an author and professor of literature. Christians would do well to learn from these three and learn to read and produce good fiction.
Fox 2: A Detroit mailman discovers a house on fire during his deliveries, fights the fire until firemen arrive, then goes back to delivering mail. Darrian Crutcher won’t admit he is a hero, but I’m pretty sure Michael Bay is already signed on to direct the screenplay of his crazy day. Detroit needs some good news and a hero.
Christianity Today: There is a new arms race raging around the world – arms of Jesus that is. Country after country are constructing giant statues of Christ in an effort to gain attention and generate tourism. I’m just waiting on the Talladega Nights Jesus statue.
Fast Company: Starpath, a new spray being tested in England, makes streets glow in the dark. Who’s going to be the first guy to use that stuff for a romantic wedding proposal?

Mashable: “Somewhere in space,” there is a really bad original Star Wars trailer that thankfully was never actually used to promote the film. Actually, this trailer looks like something from the modern George Lucas that we all know and hate.
