Recommended Blog Posts

I appreciate the thoughts of Mike at the Upper Room Blog. I don't know much about him, but I like the way he thinks and writes. In fact, I often say to myself, I wish I had written that post, after reading his blog. He has some good thoughts about "Rethinking Church" at http://theupperroom.typepad.com/the_upper_room/2008/06/rethinking-church.html.

John Piper has listed "20 Reasons I Don't Take Potshots at Fundamentalists" at http://www.desiringgod.org/Blog/1251_20_reasons_i_dont_take_potshots_at_fundamentalists/. I agree with almost all of his list (except my father is not a fundamentalist), but I especially echo the sentiments of Reason #20. People to my left also believe I'm a fundamentalist, and there are a lot of people to my left.

Terry, feel free to mention my blog. I would appreciate it. I'm still so new to this blog thing. It looks like you've got it whipped. :)

Mike,
You're welcome! I look forward to reading more from you.

Tara,
You've got it! I'll add you to my blog roll. Feel free to check out some of your old friends from the Contact Church on my blog roll, too. It's good to hear from you!

Cute. I've been thinking lately about the lines we draw. When I was ultra-conservative I didn't want anything to do with "liberals" or "progressives." Now that I've loosened up a bit, I find myself avoiding those I perceive as "too conservative." I gotta get over this.

Thanks for the comment, Adam! It can be a huge challenge to get along with fellow Christians sometimes. I saw a video series by Rick Warren in which he stated, "Every group has at least one EGR member. EGR stands for 'Extra Grace Required.' If you look around your group and cannot identify who it is... it's probably you." Too often, it's me.
