O Me of Little Faith

My friend Bryan Allain is knee-deep in a new coaching venture called BlogRocket, which is designed to help bloggers improve their blogs and grow their readership. Because I know many of my readers maintain their own blogs, I asked Bryan to submit to an interview about blogging, creativity, and Ben Arment‘s Dream Year. —————— How…

Today’s conversion story is from Christy, who due to the nature of her experience and family situation (keep reading) has requested that I not use her last name. Christy transitioned from a fundamentalist Christian childhood to a socially active, progressive evangelical faith during the college years…and then to a current category she describes as “spiritual…

Last week, writer and editor Jon M. Sweeney published a thought-provoking essay about religious doubt in the Huffington Post. Sweeney is a publisher at Paraclete Press and the author of the new Verily, Verily, a book about the King James Bible. The essay, called “Doubt is the Faith That Binds Us Together,” explores the ways…

I don’t usually embed videos on this blog — it’s something I usually reserve for Twitter or Facebook links. But this footage is stunning. You think of a tsunami as one big influx of water, but this just keeps coming and coming and coming. Violent and devastating. That is terrifying. Lots of people will watch…

A self-interview: ———————– So…shouldn’t you, like, be posting something about Rob Bell’s event in New York City with Lisa Miller? The launch of the “Love Wins” book tour? Probably. Why do you ask? Because your earlier thoughts about Bell’s book brought a whole lot of readers to this blog, and it’s still a hot topic.…

Today’s conversion story isn’t a conversion from one faith to another, but rather a “de-conversion” from confident teenage Christianity to atheism. It comes from Ryan Hadley, a tech ninja from Colorado. —————- Bio: I’m Ryan. I live in Longmont, Colorado, just outside of Boulder. I work in Boulder at a small, fantastic company. I’m a…

Today is Ash Wednesday, which means it’s the first day of the Lenten season for Christians around the world. I thought it might be best to relay my thoughts about Lent in a self-interview format…just because it’s been awhile since I did that. This is a modification of a post I first wrote on my…

Now that a full week has passed since the whole Rob Bell saga began, I thought it would be helpful to take a deep breath and browse a few of the posts made about the subject. What follows are selections from some of the reactions around the web. This isn’t a comprehensive list, because I’m…

Today’s conversion story comes from David Johndrow, who converted from the Congregational Church to Charismatic Episcopalian (!). David is a programmer and blogger who authors the blog Fire & Grace and contributes weekly to Kingdom Bloggers. —————- Bio: David currently is a software programmer in Boston, where he resides with his wife and three daughters.…

I want to propose a thought experiment. 1. Some people believe in God but live as if he doesn’t exist. Craig Groeschel’s book, The Christian Atheist, addresses this phenomenon. (Is phenomenon the right word? Or is it more of a trend? Or maybe just an observance?) Anyway, how many of us go through our lives…
