From the blogs: Matthew Gatheringwater writes about a mugging and the strange phenomenon sometimes called "ministerial presence" in My Bus Fare and Jesus . . . Revsparker (who has been writing some powerful entries about a parishioner in prison) offers a moving meditation with the striking refrain, "Nothing left of me." . . . Religious Liberal picks apart the book Persecution: How Liberals Are Waging War Against Christianity, discovers a lot of deceit, and says we must "evangelize a different, humane, religious vision" in response . . . And, although it's two weeks old, read Real Live Preacher's imaginary correspondence with a church seeking a new minister:
Do you want me timid and wearing little spectacles, droning from a dusty prayer book while people nod in the pews? Do you want a gentle eunuch, tamed and kept by the church gentry? Do you want to pull my chain and watch the pretty Jesus words come out?
Finally, I want to call attention to some modern Muslim blogs: A Dervish's Du'a' (thanks for the link!) posts a fascinating Progressive Muslims' Mission Statement . . . Also check out alt.Muslim, Shi'a Pundit, and Muslim Wake-Up.
