New today from the Century:

  • Carol Zaleski on Tintin: "One has only to look at Tintin, his round face animated by the simplest
    imaginable features, to know that he is the ultimate Boy Scout."

  • Carol Howard Merritt on turning 40: "As we’re all in the midst of Advent longing, I realize that I’m turning
    40 in a couple of days. Which puts me in an odd position, since I write and speak about ministering with people in their 20s and 30s."
  • Ryan Dueck on God and goodness: "'They must not believe in God.'
    These words from my daughter came after a
    conversation we had been having at bedtime about someone who she had
    heard yelling at their baby. For her, it was clear: someone who
    believed in God simply would not do something as monstrous as scream 'shut up!' at an infant."
  • Lil Copan on artwork by Eija-Liisa Ahtila, whose "mixture of stills of familiar paintings of the annunciation and acted
    scenes--with angels, a patron, donkeys, Mary, cultural Christmas
    snapshots and layers of angel wings--creates a layered narrative." (subscription required)
