Voting, Herman, and Small Things

posted by Jason Boyett

Don’t forget to vote below for the winner of the Fake Band Name contest. “Rawboned Donkey and the Saddlebags” is currently in the lead, so if you think that’s a completely lame name, then you’d better do something about it. Voting closes at noon today (Friday). Central time. I’ll let the finalists stew over the weekend and will announce the winner on Monday.

Update: The polls closed at noon.

In other news, things continue to progress for the Give Herman A Dollar Experiment. (If that doesn’t ring a bell, read this to catch up.) Our friends Terry Foester and Ben Cooper are continuing to see dollar bills come in for their homeless friend, Herman. A total of $903 individual dollars. When added to a few pledged matches, that provides Herman with more than $2300. That’s some serious cash. Terry and Ben are continuing to meet with Herman, are reading him the notes of encouragement that come with the dollar bills, and are looking at some housing options for him.

Last week, the three of them spent time with Nicole from the Shane Claiborne-related “Ordinary Radicals” documentary. They’ve done radio interviews and been featured in the local newspaper. Just two regular guys doing something small — for one person — and it’s still being talked about.

We could all stand to find something small and dollar-ish to do for someone today.

Who despises the day of small things? (Zech. 4:10)

Update: Tomorrow is Herman’s 58th birthday. Terry and Ben are giving him a party at the park near the place he sleeps. Happy birthday, Herman.

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
