Cubs Gorbachev Sabbath

posted by Jason Boyett

The combination of Spring Break and Easter at the same time has made this a busy week. In lieu of a longer post, here are a few items of interest:

The Junky Car Club has declared a tongue-in-cheek feud with my beloved Chicago Cubs because of this story about their players secretly demolishing their strength coach’s old car and then giving him a brand-new Xterra as a replacement. As a long-time Cubs fan and a proud member of the JCC, I am torn by this news. Generosity is cool, but not when it comes at the expense of an innocent 13-year-old Nissan Sentra. I’m going to have to stand with the Junky Car Club on this one.

Mikhail Gorbachev is a Christian. Not only that, but he’s a big fan of St. Francis of Assisi (who happens to be my favorite saint, too). As the Communist leader of the USSR, Gorby was forced to publicly proclaim himself an atheist, but apparently there were always rumors that he was a closet Christian. Turns out the rumors were true — he’s a devout, baptized member of the Russian Orthodox Church. Kinda makes me feel bad for identifying him as a candidate for the Antichrist in Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse. Sorry, Mr. Gorbachev.

TrueU has posted a article I wrote about trying to learn how to fully observe the Sabbath…not just as a day for worship, but as a time of rest. My family and I attend church on Saturday nights, and because of my involvement on the leadership team there, it often involves multiple responsibilities on my part. But we’re getting better at not doing much on Sundays. Sunday mornings are wonderful, and I’m making an attempt this year to not write that day if at all possible — whether it’s work on the books or blog posts or other freelance stuff.

As someone who also has dual citizenship with the JCC and Cubs Fans International, I understand your distress. Perhaps they should hire you as team chaplain. Everybody wins.

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
If you've ever felt out of place among all the exciting, expressive, emotional enthusiasm of a contemporary church service...or an evangelist's demands that you need to constantly be sharing your faith boldly to strangers...if it simply wipes you out to be surrounded by people all the time,  then y
