posted by xscot mcknight

Duane Young sent me this from Brennan Manning. It touches upon an old set of posts I did on “grace grinding”: the use of grace to grind folks down rather than to heal them. Where do you place yourself: settler […]

Blogs of the Week

posted by xscot mcknight

Good story of the week: HT to Bob Smietana. New blog of the week I’ve found: Donn Johnson, formerly a Covenant pastor up in Minneapolis and now (feel sorry for him) in Santa Barbara, has a blog called “Jibstay.” Check […]

After an 11pm flight on a full plane, a red-eye that arrived at O’Hare at 4:25am, and a short drive home, and not any where near being rested, I want to pause (before a nap) to record my last day […]
