No comments on Erling and the interesting variety of readers he gets commenting on his poetry site? i told you on saturday but nobody took the bait. come on. take a hint and make my day. And think about the impact spiritual poetry can make and the vast range of people who read it.

New releases today from Apple, including Motion software and iBook with a superdrive. Cant decide which one you cant afford? No prob . . . let Macmegasite decide for you between the new iBook and PowerBook. Watch out for hot deals from Apple on old stuff.
According to WFMU "The Old Codgers Alamanac", April 19 is the day Charles Darwin died. (Image their own personal theological interpretation and not necessarily The Skinny on what really happened)
Or, if i could have a long title, "Everything you wanted to know about the TallSkinnyKiwi and his money but were afraid he would ask".
I am writing this in response to a comment from a lovely housewife, and some others who asked me yesterday about my situation and how to help. If you dont want to know, dont continue reading.
About that meeting i missed in Manchester. Apparently they didnt miss me. They had a great time and changed everything. They voted to officially stop the European Church Growth Association and start a new organization called Eurochurch. Domain name was purchased a few hours ago - eurochurch.net - Martin Robinson will head up the core group and the outer core, with a more international contingency, will be headed up by Blogger Reinhold Scharnowski,, who heads up Dawn Europe and is one of my bosses. (Actually, he is more like a dad to me)
Last night I sat on the floor with some young people who are kicking off a church re:start next week. It used to be called "Host" but the new church will be called "Feast". I like the name. Lots of connotations of Last Supper, Love Feast, Do "this" in remembrance (interactive meal), and a focus on being together, inviting the community to come and eat . . . lots of stuff. Good name and good group of people.
Need to confess something? Grouphug.us is one way to make it public. There wont be a priest available to absolve you, but getting it out in the open may be a part of your forgiveness process.
Warning: This is not a site to go reading in - i guarantee you will be offended. Its a confessional site and what is said here is not a lot different than what is said inside a real confessional. So be warned. Use it for confessing, but not for Sunday afternoon reading.
This is a good example of recapitulation rather than representation. It is not trying to represent a real confessional. It is a web site designed from the ground up for this purpose.
To be somebody
is to see the mystery of God
in Norwegian strawberies
They look like rubies
but taste like candy from heaven.
(more . . . from my friend Erling at "I Am Somebody"), whose site gets comments from people who dont seem to come to my blog.
"What most intrigues Hendershot about the $4-billion-per-year "Christian lifestyles industry" is how the evangelicals in it negotiate the injunction to be "in the world but not of it."
- A quote from Marketing the Messiah, a review of 2 new books about "Rapture Culture" and evangelicals.
For the church that has everything except . . . a KaosBox visual synthesizer. Really, who needs an overhead projector when you can have this?
