Weekend Reading, 29 October

So it's been forever since I've done one of these and with my computer crashing this isn't a best-of from the last week, more like a must-read from a couple of weeks ago (or longer!). As fast as social media moves, it can be easy to miss the good stuff. So without further ado...

First off, happy belated blogiversary to Matt Appling at The Church of No People! His blog is one of my favorites. It helps that it's one of the few that my firewall at work doesn't blog (don't tell anyone!).

Next are overdue congratulations to Tyler Braun and Glynn Young on their manuscripts being accepted for publishing. I'm looking forward to the end product!

If you've read my blog for any period of time you've noticed one subject I am most passionate about is the present state of the Church, Christ's Bride and our own personal struggles within. So when others write with conviction and concern it always gets my attention. In no particular order:
  • Jonathan Keck wishes that America would experience a "Bloody Revolution" (don't judge by the title, this is a serious read)
  • Collin Hansen writes about "the Rise and Fall" of the Congregational Church of Northampton, once home to Evangelical giant, Jonathan Edwards.
  • Rachel Held Evens wants a faith worth fighting for, one that is not "easy".
  • Mercedes writes about how the "Structure of the Church Must Change".
  • Jay Cookingham reminds us that it is Jesus who "invites" us to follow him, not the other way around.
  • Duane Scott laments that many seek the Truth but only find "Religion". (scroll about half-way down)
  • Matt Appling compares "Big Church" with Big Oil.

 Enjoy reading and have a blessed weekend!
