At the top of my

At the top of my list is Allan Bevere’s wonderful post about Harold, who passed away recently, but who is missed. Hark the Harold! His post on the top ten stories is worth weighing in on.
Next to Allan’s blog is the new blog by Tom Ward called PurplePastor. This should be some exciting reading. I like this quotation: “Being purple is not a political statement. It’s a pastoral one. It has more to do with the Sermon on the Mount than the State of the Union.”
I went to a fight, and a hockey game broke out!”
1. Christian Cryder has posted a .pdf of his paper on the emerging movement. Sensitive, generous, candid, and unafraid to dialogue. I like this piece.
2. One of my “blog friends” is Ted Gossard, and he now is posting at Community of Jesus. He’s done a few posts interacting with my Jesus Creed, so I’m keeping a close eye on his site these days. Ted belongs at the top here, too.
3. Jamie Arpin-Ricci — with a nice touch on the Christmas Sunday issue.
4. Barna’s eight trends in the Church in 2005.
5. Pray for Brad Bergfalk, or his wife and kids.
6. Guilt about spiritual disciplines has a nice reminder from Sara Atkinson.
What we all need to read and reflect on is Jim Martin’s nice piece. It’s that time of the year.
It’s also time to see a real debate live: Hurtado, Kloppenborg, and Segal.

Scot, Thanks so much. And I’m glad you’re keeping a close eye on things over at my blog. I really do enjoy interacting with your book and want to do so more, along with your book, “Embracing Grace”. Hopefully it will get others to interact with those books as well.
Ted

Scot,
Glad you liked the poem. It came to me during our Christmas Eve service (yes, no service on Sunday). Glad I could mention you in it.
Peace,
Jamie

Scot, thanks for the “honorable mention” for PurplePastor. Though it is the holiday season, I’ve got a hunch that you’re really this generous all year long.
Happy New Year!
Tom

Thanks for the mention, Scot. And thanks for the comments from those of you who responded. One of the things I love about the EM (and Scot exemplifies this as well as any I’ve seen online), it the opportunity for thoughtful dialogue, discourse, and feedback. It’s very refreshing, and it goes a long ways towards fostering real communication… So kudos to all of you…

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
