Typically, the Saturday Six-Pack features articles that are faith-focused or ministry-geared, but I reserve the right to live up to the “disorderly pile of who-knows-what” tagline at the top of this page! This particular edition covers everything from conflict, to creativity, from iPhone addictions to inbred elephants. (Yes, you read that correctly.)
Without further delay:
1) Why Conflict in Life is Terrific
A better life can be found on the other side of conflict. Donald Miller provides some guidance on how to navigate those potential-filled times of tension.
2) Creativity, Excellence,… and Patience
If you want to be great at whatever you do, then check this brief read out. If you don’t want to be great at whatever you do, then find something else to do.
3) Our Hearts, Desperately Deceptive
If you can guess the connection between pears, prostitution, and the crookedness of the human heart, then don’t click on this one. But if you can’t…
4) Quotes for Lent

5) How Can I Stop Using My Phone all the Time and Actually Connect with Real People in the Real World?
After awarding this post with the longest-title-in-in-the-history-of-the-Saturday-Six-Pack trophy, I now direct any technology-trapped readers to rediscover the world that is NOT contained on that admittedly incredible screen in your pocket. How to create a bit more freedom from the phone? Read on.
6) Stop Inbreeding Innovation
Any article that begins with a paragraph about inbred elephants gets stuck in the Six-Pack; that is one of this blog’s founding principles. That said, when the trunked beasts and their dangerously narrow family trees is set aside, what you’ll find here is a challenge to broaden your chances at fresh and creative ideas. If you could use that, you could use a lesson in pachyderm sperm bank management first.
Have a great weekend, friends–renew yourself and reverence God.
