David Opderbeck weighs in on faith and missional theology. Erika’s suggestive post is worth your reading. And Jason Clark announces a new missional D.Min. effort he will direct. David Dunbar’s new piece in Missional Journal is an excellent description of how to re-shape seminary in a missional direction (look at 2009, 3 … 2… Everything Changes). I wasn’t aware this piece of mine on why evangelicals become Catholic was still online. (Does anyone know about this website?) [A newer version of this piece can be found in Finding Faith, Losing Faith: Stories of Conversion and Apostasy

there and don’t want to lay claim to him. Just saying, they do things
differently in the part of the country where taking a hot iron poker to
someone’s backside is a way of life, not torture.” ?!#$%@&$#
We will be in SA in a few weeks, and I suspect post-election coverage will be at a pitch.
Doug Wilson may interest some, but I can’t find a good enough reason for CT to profile him at this length.
1. Maybe a cup of cold water for Cuba will lead to a cycle of grace within Cuba and with Cuba.
2. Racial discrimination case due in the Supreme Court.
3. Brian McLaren on “are we a Christian nation?” Colson claims Obama’s statements were too simplistic.
4. Are youth hostels changing in Europe?
5. Were the Tea Parties little more than tempest in a tea pot?
6. A tough, scrappy country. Good piece by Brooks.
7. Obama and religious symbols — some Catholics are irritated.
8. The average college student’s credit card debt is not good. It’s a serious issue now for many.
9. Why the Civil War?
10. Is Obama an accommodationist?
