Controversy of the week: a high school teacher speaks out about Bush. I believe in free speech, but I believe in intelligent conversation. And what many think is free speech is simply opinionating an ideology.

Wisdom of the week: from Hamo about personality cults. You know I’m a big fan of Pastor Jim Martin, who has the wisest blog in the world, but if you’re young (married less than ten years or thinking about it […]

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 […]

This justified rant by TSK is exactly what a rant out to be. Top of the list for me. And, finally, a missionally-shaped, emerging-focused, technologically-alert, monastically-inspired, internationally-influenced Christian who will read academically-oriented bloggers.

The blog of the week is the story about Bob Robinson, former student, fellow blogger, and energetic, enthusiastic emerging voice who is now ministering to college students. Bob had emergency heart surgery (see here) and we are still asking for […]

1. Perhaps the “blog of the week” is the non-blogging about the Emergent-Jewish conversation. After mega-flapping about what would happen, now that it has happened, I’ve hardly seen a comment. Maybe I missed it — and do point it out, […]

Mark Roberts’ series in response to Bart Ehrman is very good, and anticipate a series I plan to do myself. I’ve linked to only one post in the series. 1. I really like my son’s post on Airports. I’ve been […]

Top billing this week goes to some good blogs I found this week dealing with themes surrounding the pursuit of social justice with respect to racism. Maurice Broaddus has some ongoing reflections on ontological blackness: part 1, part 2, part […]

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 […]

My Year in Blogging

Last April, Bob Smietana, a fine editor for Covenant Companion and someone with exceptional instincts for what is going on in the American church, and I were having coffee at Tre Kronor (a local, Swedish restaurant) when he simply suggested […]

This blogs of the week has been getting some attention of late, and I can’t possibly read everyone’s blog every day or week, so if you find something particularly worthy of note, let me know — and even if you […]

Rusty Peterman’s link to Ten Paradigm Shifts for impacting your community is my top blog discovery of the week. A .pdf link is provided. Or is it Stephen Shields‘ wise post about interfaith dialogue? Or is it Kerry Doyal’s story […]

Lots of blogs in my blogs of the week. The very top of my blog list this week is Karen Spears Zacharias’ funny stories on her blog, Sit and Spit. Her experience with the friend who calls it “E-Rac” and […]

Good reminder from Bob Robinson, whose site is always worth reading. The struggle in the South is far from over. 1. John Frye’s series on Jesus as an Emerging Pastor. Good stuff to think about. 2. Jeff intersects theology and […]

The blog of the week goes to Steve McCoy who, unknown to me, sitting in my office when Don Hagner and I were talking about divorce and remarriage, videotaped us and has now posted a video of it – with […]

Blog of the week: iMonk’s confession of his spat with his wife, and how this leads to a long reflection on his loathing of his pastoral career. And Kerry Doyal’s gentle reminder that it is not about us.

First, and foremost, a blogger put me on to this site: Kari and Aaron are going through very difficult times. The whole story can be found here. We need to pray for them. And for Kyle Lake’s family and loved […]

Pride of place goes this week to Jamie Arpin-Ricci’s post about the ministry they offer with YWAM to minister in an urban setting and the need for more missionally minded folks. Help him spread the word about this opportunity. 1. […]

Maybe one of the best weeks ever for me in reading other blogs. (It didn’t hurt that I got my book on prayer done and feel less pressured to keep grinding away.) 1. I want to suggest you look at […]

1. Dan Clendenin’s weekly commentary on the Lectionary is worth reading each week, so I’ll mention it here and ask you to consider linking. 2. John Frye’s back from his trip to Turkey and the Holy Land, and has all […]

1. Anthony Smith‘s essay on racism and practicing Pentecost. There is much to be said here, but Anthony has got it going. 2. Jim Smith’s genuine rumination on the struggles of preaching. 3. Brad Bergfalk’s suggestions on starting up a […]

I’m trying to get through my entire blogroll each week, but the book on prayer has kept me so busy I’ve not visited them all. Kris reads perhaps even more than I do, but I’ve found the following blogs this […]

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

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

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
