Beachcombing 9/25/2012

     Here are my "good reads" for the week!  Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Beachcombing - 9/25/2012

Progressive Christianity Isn't Progressive Politics! - blog by Roger Wolsey - Finally!  Someone who described how I feel!  As a Libertarian in a Christian Left, Democrat, Evangelical, Republican world, a girl can get awful lonely.  I thin this best described where I am religiously and politically.

The 5 Steps to Writing a Book - blog by Donald Miller - Whether you are writing a book, otherwise creative, or even not creative at all, this blog was really funny!  I related on so many levels.  If you have ever experienced a degree of frustration with any project, this is worth the read!

Sneaking Into Worship - blog - Maybe all these contemporary worship services aren't working to bring people in as well as we think they are?  I lead a group of young adults that actually like more traditional services, and yet our contemporary service seems to be the service that is growing the most, so this was of great interest to me.  I wonder what we may be missing as a church eventually.

Fed Up with “The Church”? Try a Different One (Maybe Even in the Mainline!) - blog by Ellen Painter Dollar - So many I know are "unchurched" and what I would say is try again.  There is a church home out there.  Not any one church will be perfect, as we are not perfect human beings, but keeping that in mind, there is a place for all of us.

And in case anyone was wondering (and took the same quiz on Facebook).... 

Happy Fishing!
