Found a lot of cool stuff around the webworld and blogosphere in recent days and thought I’d share some of it with you. Let’s start with church marketing guru Richard Reising who makes an excellent point about helping to bridge “outsiders” to be “insiders” with his continuing Starbucks analogy.
Brian McLaren furnishes a passel of interesting links from one of his “blog round-ups” here.
There is an intriguing analysis from Ed Stetzer on the latest data from the Barna group looking at behavior and experience during the Christmas season. He furnishes us with a few more links to look at as well.
I’ll be teaching an adult Christian ed. class this winter on “how to read the Bible,” so I am continually on the lookout for interesting topics and material to help me with my endeavors. Michael Spencer aka internetmonk.com gives props to some books and thinking that might help me out. I thought some of you might like his information as well.
I would have missed this one if it weren’t for Scot McKnight’s head’s up post (his weekly meanderings). Scot shares an insightful and thought-provoking article from Tim Keller on the gospel message. If you’re looking for something to kick-start your morning or your thinking, this is it.
Tim Stevens (executive pastor at Granger Church) was one of the speakers at the recent Sticks Conference I attended (and blogged about here). He offers up some thoughts on denominational association and influence on his blog that I thought were worth reading and sharing. Mark Beeson, senior pastor at Granger, tags on his thoughts about the topic here.
Monday Morning Insight blogger, Todd Rhodes, shares this link about the coming trends in mulit-site campuses with this post.
I think this entry from stuff Christians like is hilarious…not only is it funny on its own, but I can totally relate (LOL)!
If I haven’t provided you enough fodder for thought yet, how about this furious barrage of links:
- Emergent-Missional 2008 highlights
- Reading the Christian Mystics and more here…
- Can’t get enough??? Try this from Themelios.
- Still not enough??? Here are Trevin Wax’s Kingdom People Blog with a few links and a chance to win his favorite books of 2008.
