Online Worship – Things to Think About

I liked these two brief videos about producing online worship because they suggested taking a step back and thinking first about goals. (Don’t get me wrong: I’ve appreciated all the great content that bypasses that, for people who just want to do something. But with Easter behind us and no clear timeframe or picture of … Continue reading »

Methodists and Same-Sex Unions

From an unlikely source comes a surprisingly good (fair) explanation of the situation in the United Methodist Church regarding same-sex unions: (The source is non-sectarian public-policy think tank, and I think they should be congratulated for wading into a theological argument to try to help explain it. Their position seems to be pro-SSM but they … Continue reading »

C. S. Lewis – Where to Start

Have you ever wondered what makes C. S. Lewis such a great writer? Or would you like to get started reading him? In this video, John Piper and Tim Keller talk about how to get started with Lewis: (Via.)

Hearing the song started me thinking: I believe I have a David Meese album. So I checked, and, yes, I do: three, in fact — but I never … Continue reading »

Our Hi-8 camcorder is busted, so there’s no way to play the tapes back, and that’s step one of any conversion. I don’t want to pay a service to convert them. I’d rather borrow a … Continue reading »

More Catalyst Nuggets

I continue to be impressed with the quality of the material at Catalyst West 2009. I wasn’t able to carpool today to Presbytery due to a scheduling conflict that made it also my day as chaplain at the local hospital. But the upside was that, when I did drive to Presbytery, I got to listen … Continue reading »

Susan Boyle is a Reminder

Today I heard about Susan Boyle, the singing sensation who wowed the judges on Britain’s Got Talent. (Her story is summarized here, and it’s worth reading.) It’s a touching reminder how much we judge people. All the time, and to our shame. But God is good, and occasionally lets us see in one person, like … Continue reading »
