I hope these weekly posts are helpful. I basically link to interesting posts and articles that I’ve read. I should clarify that I’m not supporting everything said in anything I’ve linked to. I think it is good to read things that you disagree with. If you have some interesting posts you have read, send ’em my way.
I filmed myself all through my day at seminary yesterday…be looking for that next week.
- Bob Hyatt has some great thoughts on what to do with the Emerging Church/Emergent distinction…and he is from Portland, so he is worth a read either way!
- A good Q/A with Shane Claiborne…you know how much I dig that guy.
- Todd Hiestand understands the challenge to community within suburbia better than anyone I’ve read.
- Don Hofer (new blogger) wrote a great post on making a difference. Go welcome him to blogging too.
- Jay loves me and Jill 🙂
- And Jay was so inspired by my letters to politicians that he wrote one of his own. Enjoy!
- A new blog started recently called “Clergy for Obama”. What I want to know is how these pastors endorsing Obama from a blog is any different than on a Sunday morning? Both are against church tax policy. While I don’t think voting for Obama is wrong for Christians (debate with me on that another time), I do think this is wrong.
- In light of my post on Christian colleges, I think you should take the “integrity of Bible colleges quiz”.
- A recent graduate from Multnomah and a youth pastor in a suburb of Portland died in a tragic accident while he was trying to help someone on the road. Please pray for this situation.
- Why people don’t leave town when a hurricane is about to hit.
- As I’m sure you know Palin’s email was hacked this week. 2 thoughts….she wasn’t very smart about securing it, but at least she has email…McCain said he doesn’t even know how to use email (and no I don’t think this matters, it is just funny).
- Total Request Live, better know as “TRL” is done. I have many memories coming home from school and watching that with friends in high school.
