Progressive Christianity Isn't Progressive Politics! - Patheos.com 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 - Storylineblog.com 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 - Adorate.org 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!) - Patheos.com 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.
