Weekly (okay Monthly) Review
Wow! I don't know what has happened to the last month. But here is a recap of some of the more interesting (in my opinion) things on the web related to worship and faith (and a few fun misc items) since I last shared:
Starting with a misc item: For those of us who remember Romper Room and "Come On Eileen," check out Joshilyn Jackson's blog.
I had a wonderful weekend with a group of fantastic women in Rogersville as we explored our faith. Check out Hillary and Jenny's blogs on the weekend (but ignore the awful pictures of me!)
In the area of people of faith acting badly, check out the Bible burning row in Israel.
At Tribal Church, Carol reflects on Confirmation and vocation and friendship.
Ira Glass on Storytelling
Over at Out of Ur, they are Rethinking the Gospel and arereflecting on whether our spiritual practices isolate us from pain.
Relevant magazine considers the gospel message that we are not meant to walk alone as well as tackling the tough issue of homosexuality!
Christianity Today had a fun series of articles that explored the relationship between religion and rock and roll. I especially loved the articles on Johnny Cash and a new book about Cash and religion.
I'll miss Harvey Korman!
Check out the reflections over at The Ooze on Forcing God into A Formula, The Church As A Social Institution, a wonderful experience at the Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio, and a very hard hitting, uncomfortable article on the meaning of worship.
Our church secretary at New Life, Kim, shared with me that she was glad that I wore flip flops but perhaps we should be careful!
Check out the wonderful new sung version of Holy Communion that was used at ordination last week.
Collide reflects on culture and seminary.
