Around the Web and Back Again

Sometimes, it’s best to let others speak. In my case, it’s probably always advised… here’s some interesting stuff I’ve found along the way.

What is the ultimate irony of the Christian faith? Mike Fisk, over at Built with Grace, writes, “That which was given to us to empower us has divided us. That which was given to give us peace has brought fear.” You’ll have to visit him to get the rest of the story.

Could prayer be the simple missing ingredient? Here’s a challenge from someone who suggests we may hold all of the answers on our knees. “On the Wings of a Eagle” writes, “Do you believe we can take God at His word? Call upon His name; then stand back and watch His wonders unfold.”

Continuing the age-old debate of who is right and who is wrong… who’s in and who’s out, a piece surfaces at All Along the Watchtower stressing the importance of Creeds in the face of heresy. Well thought out work here.

In the mood for a little poetry? How about one that transcends race, position, and denominational barrier. Rodi, over at Agnus Dei, presents Jackie Hill’s “What Has Happened to Us Church?” Interesting…

Having a little spat with pride? “Well yes, as a matter of fact, I am.” I have just the place for you to visit. “Why, thank you very much.” (Okay, will someone else please enter this conversation… talking to myself is pretty lame) For my hit of the series, Steven Atwood’s blog relays the timely message, Humility Blesses Others and Glorifies God.

Finally, Christopher Clody finds a way to bring both God and politics into a discussion without being lynched… at least I haven’t heard of his lynching (but hey, I’m locked within the fences of a large ranch. What do I know? Are you still out there Christopher? Take a look here.

    …haven’t been lynched yet 😉
    As always, thanks for your insights!
    His, Chris

  2. All great articles on wonderful sites I will revisit, my friend. Thank you.

    One thing I would like to add is that the Watchtower article while of the quality that I always find there has a very unusually weak comment stream. Jessica has accumulated a very distinguished group of commenters unlike any I have seen, anywhere. I’m quite proud to be one of the (weaker) members of that company. I have never seen a site that will drive head on into controversies in and between our churches with more aplomb and have commenters follow the lead with out wars erupting. Nobody ever will go against their creed but the mutual respect is quite incredible until you are immersed in it.

    All of us who deal with matters of faith would be well advised to emulate the chatelaine of the Watchower. I find myself quite often spending more time at the Watchtower than I do on my own. It’s that good.

    Thanks for letting me say that, nor is it meant to diminish anybody else as I said, that is an incredible selection you have offered us, and your site is quite wonderful as well.
