Padkos–Food For The Road

I’m starting a new feature on the blog : every day I drop by several different places on the web, reading really good articles and I have so many bookmarks by now, that it is getting hard to find a specific link. So I decided to follow the example of some other bloggers (for me most notably Tim Challis with his  ‘A La Carte’) and collect those links on my own blog for –hopefully- easier reference in the future.

 

So here goes the first ‘Padkos’ (Padkos is Afrikaans and literally means ‘food for the road’ – a meal packed to be eaten while travelling.) In keeping with the feel of this blog- that of being on a journey as Christian is in ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’ once he gets beyond the wicket gate- I thought it an appropriate title for ‘food’ I snack on along the way. Not to replace the ‘daily bread’ of the Scriptures, but in addition to it.
