Time for a short break from -ologys and -isms. Seems it's gotten a little stuffy in here lately; I think I'll crack open the windows, let some fresh air in, and take the opportunity to tell you a little bit about what's happening in blogville.
Garrett's just rolled out a blog: be sure to stop by and encourage him. I for one am looking forward to the tech pointers and music: he even said that he'll be raking his falling thoughts into piles. Should be interesting. This guy is not just any leaf.
Peter was recently bit by the blog-bug, and I hear he has some lasagne in the oven. It's cooking a little slow, but he says he's working on it.
Javan and Jordan are a few neat guys I met through the Emerging Anabaptism forums. Always on the lookout for Christians who chew before they swallow.
Here's a blog I discovered while reviewing The Christian Mind: it's got some good thoughts from time to time. This one wins hands-down for best title.
Of course, it's always fun to see what the Parishs are up to.
On a larger scale, I've enjoyed the culture and media watch provided by Mercator.net. I don't think they are necessarily Christian but they present a thoughtful perspective and have some fine writing. They just published a perceptively positive article on the good ol' USA that was actually pretty good.
For those of you who share my morbid interest in the Church & (vs.?) State question, Americans United for the Separation of Church & State maintains a blog that, if a little biased, is gratifyingly critical of the religious right mainstream and generally helpful in a continuing analysis of the issue.
A word to the wise: I post a lot of links here, and I think it's high time I pointed out the difference between a road sign and a recommendation. I want to make it clear that a link, in and of itself, in no way constitutes an endorsement. If anything, it's to say with the writer of Judges, "consider of it, take advice, and speak your minds."
