– Over at the Performancing blog a question was asked, What three bloggers would you want to get together for dinner? A Great Question and it took me a while to come up with the group. So I decided to go with all bloggers I have never met in person. Now imagine a cornor table at Foothills, my favorite local brewery \ restraunt and across that table sit Ben from the Faith and Theology blog, LeRon Shults (author of a new favorite book of mine), and Michael Westmoreland-White at the levellers blog. SO….who would you invite?
– Friend and Ethicist Ben Boswell has an awesome article on revolutionary baptists in Georgia (the country).
– John Cobb on progressive Christianity. He says a number of profound things, one that stuck out being:
Nevertheless, I fear that in the long run whatever grows out of a progressive Christianity that does not state its beliefs will have much the same problem as the formerly “mainline” churches that also sought to be inclusive of a diversity of beliefs. The problem for progressives will be greater, since the liberal churches were able to maintain the centrality of worship. But worship presupposes that there is something worthy of trust and praise.
– Zach brings a powerful post on ‘Openness to Mystery’ where he expands on the thought:
“In a world being ripped apart by violent fundamentalism, the most salvific element of faith in God may very well be mystery.”
– Tim Keel on ‘Cheap Copies‘
