Here’s the big one for the week: Pew Forum’s survey of religion.
A good post to weigh in on … about loneliness.
What would you do if you didn’t do what you are doing?
I’m not sure I understood it all, but Michael Kruse’s post about who is getting taxed is worth attention.
Nothing to say here … prayers. (HT: Karen)
Rules for complaining.
Future World Series Champions…

Baby polar bear with its mom.
1. Larry Norman … Jesus movement singer … passes away.
2. Our prayers are with Joel and Renee and baby.
3.
Weigh in on this one, by Josenmiami, if you have some thoughts.
4. Immigration issues and pastoral response.
5. Go Katie!
6. You got it Erika … love it. That’s why we have dark psalms, Job and Ecclesiastes, and dark hours in the Gospels and Acts. And no one can say Hebrews 11 folks had it easy…
7. Insightful and interesting.
8. A brief on Peter Rollins.
9. Again, our prayers for June Bug.

I had read the post on Rollins the other day, and appreciated your gracious correction, Scot.

That future world series champion thing is really funny. I’ve not read anything this hysterical in along time. *wiping tears from the eyes* Whew! Man, that should be on Comedy Central or something. *sides hurting now* I’ve got to share this with someone else.

1. First things first: keeping Tricia and Gwyneth Rose (and SuperDad) in our prayers;
2. If I wasn’t practicing medicine, I would teach it. Something about those who can’t, teach…
3. Father God, thank you for March!
ps: Jon and I are going to NIU to give an inspirational message next week. Please pray for us. Thanks.

I will miss Larry. He performed the last free Christian concert that I ever attended. I’ll never forget that.

Thanks for the link to Erika Haub’s article. She was a friend at Fuller, so it is nice to see her work getting noticed. And that is a great little post. Grace. I love it. :)

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

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
