Dan Kimball’s going through a life change. Marko is always good for a laugh and a link. Tony Jones has quite the post on talking with the Obama group. One ordinary guy as reported by a missional pastor. TSK in Vegas on missional and the internet and this report and link are of value. Jelani Greenidge was one of my students and I think his call here toward civility is a good one. Don Johnson compares stewardship to sobriety. iMonk on the real prosperity gospel. Ted Gossard, one of our steady readers, reviewing LL Barkat, another reader.
Kruse Kronicle has sorted it out. Excellent.
Roland Martin speaks out for the middle class.
I’ve gotten out of practice of indicating where we will be speaking, and I do this because folks give me the business when I’m in their area and don’t let them know on Weekly Meanderings. And as we begin a more vigorous speaking schedule, my Weekly Meanderings get thinner … so my apologies in advance. But here goes for the speaking schedule:
September 20, 21

Twelve Mile, Indiana
