I'm a couple days late on last week's link roundup because I was traveling all day Friday. The Orlando airport promised me free wifi, but alas, it proved unreliable. In any case, I'm back in North Carolina after a good week in Michigan (I'll share my sermon from Kalamazoo Mennonite later this week), settling into my summer schedule. If you haven't yet, check out my crowd funding page for my Kierkegaard project here. A couple of contributions have come in the old fashioned way, via paper check, so I am now 80% funded! The remaining $245.00 should be a snap, right dear readers?  Thanks for reading, and contributing as you're able.

On to the links!

I love these yoga photos from around Chicago.

Joanna Harader on the MCUSA Executive Board resolution.

Jessica Valenti on padded bras. “Is it really women’s responsibility to hide the well-established fact that most of us have nipples, or is it men’s not to be such damn oglers? You know we have them under there, after all. Can’t we all just give up the ruse?"

A great essay from an adjunct who also works in a grocery store.

This NYT piece about the young black activists who’ve been building a movement online and in the streets since August. Unfortunately the author didn’t highlight Johnetta Elzie’s work as much as it should have, continuing the trend in downplaying the black women who are are the forefront of the moment. The article is a great profile of DeRay Mckesson, but should also send you scurrying to follow Elzie on Twitter.

Alana Massey’s thoughtful take on being culturally Christian.

Ta-Nehisi Coates on Baltimore and nonviolence as compliance.

And finally, a recipe for coffee ice cream. I haven’t made it yet, but I will do so as soon as I make my post-travel grocery run.
