I am phasing out of my co-editing gig over at Jesus Manifesto. As much as I love the website and gain so much insight from the conversations that take place there, I just have too much on my heart right now to really contribute. But speaking of the great conversations, you should really check out Mark Van Steenwyk's latest series:
The Style of Subversion: An Introduction
The Style of Subversion: Resisting Pseudo Alterity
The Style of Subversion: A Loving Resistance
May I introduce you to Margaret Feinberg? Ines and I had the priviledge of meeting and listening to her last fall, and I purchased her book, The Organic God. I had yet to read it, as my list of books-in-waiting is quite long, but on a whim responded to an email about a sale at her website last week, and ended up with the audio books to both The Organic God and The Sacred Echo, a physical copy of The Sacred Echo, a copy of God Whispers, and a few Bible studies. I actually started reading God Whispers a few weeks ago, and it was one of the prompts that actually freed my heart to start exploring church congregations again. This weekend, I listened to the audio version of The Organic God to and from the lake. Margaret is a gifted writer and teacher. She speaks with humility and sincerity, and a good bit of humor, as well. All three books I purchased rotate around the theme of communing with and listening to God.
Who doesn't like movies? Most likely not the people who bother to read this blog. So, if you're interested in a really great blog about picture shows, might I recommend Three Hands in the Popcorn Bag? Three fabulously intriguing perspectives from three fabulously intriguing guys. And, I promise, its not all about horror flicks - take a look around.
